What The Cast Of Elf Looks Like Today

Date:

Mary Steenburgen played Buddy’s kindhearted stepmother, Emily Hobbs. Like many of her co-stars, she was already a Hollywood ace by the time she joined the cast of “Elf.” Steenburgen was discovered by Jack Nicholson in the late ’70s and made her big screen debut in his 1978 film, “Goin’ South.” Her career quickly accelerated, and in 1981, she won an Oscar for her performance in the film “Melvin and Howard.” She was also known for her performances in “Parenthood,” and the television adaptation of “Back to the Future.” Before becoming Emily Hobbs, Steenburgen already had one Christmas film under her belt: She starred in Disney’s “One Magic Christmas” in 1985. 

After filming “Elf,” Steenburgen established herself as a Christmas film star. Her yuletide resume includes titles like “Four Christmases” and “Happiest Season.” “I do enjoy holiday films, but I didn’t ever have plans about being in them, they just sort of came to me,” she confessed to Entertainment Weekly. “It’s really serendipitous. But I enjoy it because it’s something that I feel like families can watch together.” 

Steenburgen also graced the small screen with performances in “Justified,” “The Last Man on Earth,” “Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist,” and more. In 2008, Steenburgen reunited with Will Ferrell to co-star in another gut-busting comedy, “Step Brothers.”
