In the fall, Smart will be seen in Paul Feig's film "A Simple Favor" opposite Anna Kendrick and Blake Lively.

She also starred as Floyd Gerhardt on the second season of Hawley's acclaimed series "Fargo" on FX, for which she won a Critics' Choice Award and was nominated for an Emmy Award.

During her career, Smart has showcased her talents alongside numerous top Hollywood actors including Reese Witherspoon in "Sweet Home Alabama," Steve Martin in "Bringing Down the House," Mark Wahlberg in "I Heart Huckabees," Zach Braff and Peter Sarsgaard in "Garden State," Bruce Willis in "The Kid," Robert De Niro and Martin Landau in "Mistress," and Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau in "The Odd Couple II."
