Rogers' less mainstream, but still highly popular, movies include "The Rapture," an analysis of religion in America that created huge divisions and debate among its audiences, and "Ginger Snaps," a Canadian-filmed independent horror movie with a low budget and high cult following. These roles were deliberate career choices to help Rogers step outside of the typecasting she felt she was experiencing in mainstream film, and the niche nature of their popularity is therefore unsurprising. Nevertheless, they are famous films within their genres.
Rogers spent several years appearing mainly in television series and TV movies in the early 2000s, but following roles in "Hope Springs," and "For a Good Time, Call...," of which "Hope Springs" was by far the most well-received and frequently viewed, she appears to have returned to regular film work since 2012. In 2015, she featured as the prospective mother-in-law in "The Wedding Ringer," which was released in January and also stars Kevin Hart, Josh Gad and Kaley Cuoco.Learn more about Art & Literature
