Farr previously starred opposite Denis Leary in the critical darling, THE JOB, as well as in THE DREW CAREY SHOW and ROSWELL, but it was Farr’s work as the sole female on the MTV hit, LOVELINE, that made her whisky-soaked voice so recognizable. Farr offered council in 200 episodes of this cult phenomenon, while she was simultaneously publishing her first book.
The Girl Code, a comic look at single women in the 21st century, was released on Valentine’s Day 2001. It has since been sold to seven countries in five languages. Farr’s latest book, Kissing Outside The Lines, has just been released and it hilariously chronicles her path to an interracial marriage. Farr uses her wit to discuss just how “post racial” we aren’t in this country. Part of a two book series, Kissing will be followed up next year with Shades of America – which discusses raising biracial children. Diane has also written for Glamour, O, Esquire, Marie Claire, GQ, Maxim, Jane, Cosmopolitan, and Self magazines.
Farr recently took over Dave Barry’s national and internationally syndicated column for Herald Tribune Newspapers, writing a monthly, comedic comment on world news. She has a web series with FunnyorDie.com called “Ass Castles” and it is just as ridiculous as the name implies. Diane also founded the card company OtherAnnouncements.com after her first engagement when down in a ball of flames. Having just sent announcements saying “Engaged,” Farr needed another card that now said “Single.” Her ‘Single’ cards were such a hit they launched a company for all the awkward news you must inform the masses of.
And if you really want to get Farr talking, ask about her jobs before she started working as an actor – as she was an acting teacher in a maximum security men’s prison and bought a nightclub at 22 years old in New York City, while she was still cocktail waitressing there. More recently (during her three seasons on Numb3rs) Farr got married and had three children in as many years. Today she is a mother to a toddler and identical twins. If you run into Diane on the street, please tell her to go take a well-deserved nap.
