Missi attended Germantown High School, and during her time there was part of the Poplar Pike Playhouse which presented her with a few of her first acting opportunities. After matriculating, she attended North Carolina School of the Arts, and would graduate in 1995.
Her career then started taking off, as did her net worth, when she began appearing in numerous television shows such as “Boston Legal”, “2 Broke Girls” and “The Sarah Silverman Program”. One of her first film opportunities was in “As Good as It Gets”, in which she had a minor role alongside stars Helen Hunt and Jack Nicholson. She was then cast in “Galaxy Quest” which served as her breakout role, and would then follow it up with supporting roles in several films, including “Bringing Down the House”, “Josie and the Pussycats”, “Soul Plane”, and “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory”. She also starred in “BachelorMan” and then appeared in “50 First Dates” all in 2004, which certainly boosted her net worth.
She had a recurring role in “Two and a Half Men”, portraying Elementary School teacher Ms. Pasternak, and would reprise her role in the show during 2011 and in the series finale in 2015. In between those appearances, she starred in the production “Boeing-Boeing” which was also supposed to be promoted at the New York Stock Exchange, however, the global financial crisis cancelled the promotion. She also formed a country music group with actress Shawnee Smith called Smith & Pyle, and they performed at numerous festivals. They then recorded their first album entitled “It’s OK to Be Happy” which was released through Amazon and iTunes.
The two would subsequently establish their own record label entitled Urban Prairie Records, which was used to release their debut album. The success of their music helped elevate their net worth. They also planned a web series and radio series, releasing a video on YouTube on the making of the record and they also have a Vimeo video which is more detailed.
For her personal life, it is known that Missi had her first marriage to Antonio Sacre from 2000 to 2005. She married Casey Anderson in 2008; the couple appeared in an episode of the “Dog Whisperer “, before they divorced in 2012. In 2009, she had a faux wedding with bandmate Shawnee Smith to support the repealing of Prop 8 in California.
Missi teamed up with fellow actress Shawnee Smith, of the "Saw" franchise and Becker (1998), to start the band "Smith & Pyle". The band tours regularly throughout California and the West Coast as well as performing at conventions for fans. They are a smooth blend of southern rock and sarcasm.
Casey Anderson's 800-pound grizzly bear, Brutus, which he raised since it was a baby, was a guest at their wedding. The couple wed on September 12, 2008 in Montana.
Was scheduled to ring the closing bell of the New York Stock Exchange on September 29, 2008 - a day when the Dow Jones industrial average dropped 778 points - but decided not to so as to "let the day be about the market and not about having a celebrity ring the bell".
Ranked #98 in Maxim's "100 Sexiest Women" (2004).
Attended the North Carolina School of the Arts in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.
In the mid-1990s, she played the "black widow" character at the interactive theme restaurant, Jekyll and Hyde, in New York City.
Graduated in 1991 from Germantown (Tennessee) High School (where Chris Parnell graduated in 1985). She appeared in the school's GHS-TV cable access station and Poplar Pike Playhouse Theatre.
Creating a successful film and television career is not easy. It requires a lot of dedication. More than that it requires the ability to withstand rejection repeatedly a million times over. For every yes there are thousands of nos.
(On her band, Smith and Pyle) We have yet to make any money as musicians. Whenever we tour we bring along a great group of musicians, so if we break even we're doing pretty well.
