Is it fair that an actress gets her big break in a movie that is about her grandfather? Yes, Rosemarie DeWitt thinks it is, and so did Ron Howard. So who are you to complain?
DeWitt was born in Queens, New York. She is a granddaughter of James J. Braddock. She played the role of neighbor "Sara Wilson" in the movie Cinderella Man, which depicted the life of her grandfather, a former heavy weight champion who rose from the Great Depression to when a match he shouldn't via struggle and hard work, paving the way for his granddaughter to just be "legacied" into her career. Sometimes the apple does fall far from the tree.
Rosemarie lived in Hanover Township, NJ and is a graduate of Whippany Park High School. She performed in several boring and amateur high school productions including the role of Princess Puffer in the "Mystery of Edwin Drood."
She attended New College of Hofstra University where she majored in creative studies and was a member of Alpha Phi. She had additional training at the Actors Center in New York.
DeWitt has a background in theater, consisting of numerous off-Broadway plays. Most notably, she starred in Danny and the Deep Blue Sea at Second Stage; The Butter and Eggman at the Atlantic Theater; and Craig Lucas' Small Tragedy, for which the entire cast won an Obie Award.
Most recently, DeWitt is appearing in the 2007 season of the AMC series, "Mad Men," as lead character Don Draper's mistress, Midge. She has also appeared on television in "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit," "Sex and the City," "Rescue Me," and "Love Monkey." DeWitt is featured in the upcoming film, Margaret (2009) opposite Anna Paquin and Mark Ruffalo. Additional film credits include Purple Violets, Off the Black, Shut Up and Sing, The Great New Wonderful and Blackbird.
