Ellen Albertini Dow

Ellen Albertini Dow (born November 16, 1918) is an American character actress. She often portrays feisty old ladies and is perhaps best known as the rapping grandmother who performs in the feature film The Wedding Singer. She also played a disillusioned, homophobic grandmother (much to the dismay of her gay grandson) in Wedding Crashers and a victim of Christopher Lloyd’s slapstick in Radioland Murders.
