Julie White stars as Anne, a tough-as-nails lawyer and recent widow in Ryan's (Matthew Perry) support group in NBC's new comedy "Go On." The two alphas of the group, Anne and Ryan, jockey for position, but soon realize they're more similar than they would like to admit.
On the big screen, she most recently co-starred in Steven Spielberg's "Office Seekers," opposite Daniel Day Lewis and Sally Field. She has been a staple in the indie film market in films such as "Hello I Must Be Going," "Breaking Upwards," "Language of a Broken Heart," "Inside Out," "My Idiot Brother" and "Killing Karma." She has also been featured in all-three "Transformers" films, "Michael Clayton" opposite George Clooney, "The Astronaut Farmer" starring Billy Bob Thorton, "The Nanny Diaries" with Laura Linney, "Slap Her… She's French," "What Women Want" with Mel Gibson, and "Say It Isn't So."
Her television credits include guest-starring roles on "Law & Order," "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit," "Six Feet Under" and "JAG". White also starred as a series regular in "Grace under Fire." A Broadway and off-Broadway veteran, White has starred in "The Understudy," "Bad Dates," "Fiction," "12th Night" and "From Up Here." In 2007, she won a Tony Award for Best Performance by a Leading Actress in a Play for her role in "The Little Dog Laughed." She also appeared on Broadway in "The Heidi Chronicles" and at the Mark Taper Forum in "Expecting Isabel" and "Money and Friends."
Born and raised in Austin, Texas, White was late to her high school sophomore English class so often that she had accumulated two-and-a-half hours of detention. When she arrived at detention, she discovered that her English teacher was holding auditions for the school's production of "Guys and Dolls." He told her that she could avoid sitting through detention if she would audition for the play.
White took a chance and auditioned, winning the role of Miss Adelaide. She found her calling and has been acting ever since.
White lives in the New York area with her Pomeranian, Lulu. She enjoys playing golf and spending time on her family's ranch in Texas. She is active in Broadway Cares/Equity Fights Aids, and she supports multiple environmental causes.
