"Saturday Night Live" great Jan Hooks died today at the age of 57, a representative for the actress and comedian confirmed to ABC News.
Hooks was part of the show from 1986 to 1991 and worked alongside some of the best talent that the legendary live show had ever seen, including the likes of Mike Myers and Chris Farley. On the sketch comedy show, she played icons from the era, including Hillary Clinton, Tammy Faye Bakker and Sinead O'Conner.
She was featured in films like "Coneheads" and "Pee-wee's Big Adventure," along with roles in game-changing TV programs like "Designing Women," "3rd Rock from the Sun" and "The Simpsons." Her most recent role was in 2010 on "30 Rock."
Hooks was born in 1957 in Decatur, Georgia, and according to IMDB, she was a member of the legendary Groundlings comedy troupe in Los Angeles at the beginning of her career.
Before "SNL," she was featured in 1980 on "The Bill Tush Show," which aired on the network that eventually became TBS and later on the hit HBO show "Not Necessarily the News" from 1983 to 1984.
The cause of death was not revealed today.
What a shame, she was a great skit actress, it's too bad she was never able to really break into movies and star.
The was hot on snl, and she was actually funny (as was the the show back then)
Aww that is sad Sinead O'Connor out lived her
And Nora Dunn
Didn't she also impersonate Jessica Hahn in a skit ?
I just watched the skit when she was Sinead to Phil Hartman as Sinatra-that was a good cast! RIP
She had great tits back in the day.
She was hot and hilarious.....rip,funny woman
Robin I was just going to get the number and call Jan Hooks.
Shit, that sucks.
She was always funny.
Damm - She hit the wall over a decade ago.
"Aw....there's no basement in The Alamo"
One of my favorite movie lines ever....
She's always been my favorite female SNL cast member. Sad.
Some of best work was on the old Bill Tush Show. She was a great skit actress. Funny and attractive. What a shame.
