Biography

She was born Judith Therese Evans in Detroit, Michigan. Her mother, Mollie Ann (née Greer), is a hospital administrator, and her father, Rich Evans, is a mechanical engineer. Her mother was once a nun who left the convent after eight years, when she was "kicked out" for wild behavior, including owning a red bathing suit. Greer was raised as Catholic and grew up in Redford Township and Livonia. She attended Churchill High School and graduated from The Theatre School at DePaul University in 1997. She later adopted her mother's maiden name for her stage name, as there were several other actresses named Judy or Judi Evans.

Greer had small parts in the films What Women Want (2000) and The Wedding Planner (2001). She was cast in a 2002 pilot for NBC alongside Stephen Colbert, Untitled Ken Finkleman Project (Imagine Entertainment), based on the Canadian show The Newsroom from Ken Finkleman. Colbert portrayed Finkleman and Greer played his sister.
