American TV and stage actress who first performed with the Steppenwolf Company of Chicago before landing the plum role of Roseanne's sister, Jackie on the top-rated TV series, "Roseanne." The TV series brought entertainment into millions of living rooms for almost ten years and netted three Emmys for Metcalf.

She graduated from Illinois State University before joining the Steppenwolf theater in which she won an Obie Award for her off-Broadway performance in "Balm in Gilead." Metcalf first started film in 1985, brightening several productions with her off-beat characterizations. Some of her noted films are, "Desperately Seeking Susan," 1985, "Uncle Buck," 1989 and "A Dangerous Woman" in 1993. In May 1998 she was found working on a new movie made for TV where she portrays Carolyn McCarthy, the widow of Congressman McCarthy. On 24 March 1999, Metcalf's new TV series made a debut, "The Norm Show" with Norm Macdonald.

She gave birth to her son Will Theron on 20 November 1993 in Los Angeles. The child is by her companion Matt Roth. The actress and her husband welcomed their second child, born on 3 July 2005 in Los Angeles to a surrogate mother.
