Ohio native Rachael Harris has made us laugh in roles that range from the raunchy (The Hangover) to the family-friendly (Diary of a Wimpy Kid).Now she’s turned dramatic in the South by Southwest hit Natural Selection. Her role as an unhappy evangelical wife earned her a breakthrough performance award at the festival, and when film critic Roger Ebert screened the movie at his Ebertfest 2011, he bestowed upon Harris the coveted Golden Thumb award. But at home, Harris is notably low-key. Her tour of Los Angeles reflects a fondness for mellow, intimate destinations. She prefers familiar locales where she can still run into friends, whether that’s a vintage boutique owned by her neighbor or an eatery where she bumps into fellow funny people like Paul Scheer and Rob Huebel. Even in the big city, Harris exudes small town charm.
