She made several guest appearances in films and television series such as Curb Your Enthusiasm, The Drew Carey Show, The Jamie Kennedy Experiment, Out of Practice, Miss Match, Family Guy, and Punk'd. In 2004, she was cast as Deandra "Sweet Dee" Reynolds in the FX sitcom It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia.She also voiced Ethel in the first season of the Comedy Central animated series Brickleberry.As Sunny begins to wind down, Olson will soon be leaving a show on which she’s been a linchpin for 10 years, and will have to look around the corner to see what lies ahead for her career.“Could you maybe relax your shoulders a bit more?” the photographer asks her, trying a different tack.
Throughout, their hyper-realistically insensitive behavior plays more like a vague comment on the solipsism of today’s online-oriented young adults than a hot-button take on any social ill represented; significantly, the denizens of Paddy’s Pub are rarely seen on computers, though their human intranet of toxic relationships is similarly cloaked from real-world responsibility while facilitating a false sense of self-sufficiency.
They actually met when Mac (Rob Mc Elhenney) interview her (Kaitlin Olson) for the role of Dee. True Philadelphians, they own a bar in Philly called and Kaitlin even went into labor at a Philadelphia Phillies game.
Im actually surprised how good this season has started , considering Last season was the worst to date IMO.
The show recovered in its fourth year, however, after re-centering on the irrelevant obsessions that exist within the nuclear cast; an episode that unraveled the mysterious appearance of fecal matter in Frank’s bed now seems a metaphor for the show’s sharpness when fixating on the gang’s isolated regurgitation of social putrescence. Aside from a tangential take on gay marriage that devolves into a matrimonial free-for-all full of regrets and dead teeth, the episodes wisely examine the gang as an awkwardly functional community—and, surrealistically, it’s a dynamic of alienation and destruction rather than fraternity that ensures this collective’s longevity.
The now cult-iconic musical season finale “The Nightman Cometh” also put the running gag of Charlie’s (Day) muddled, stalkerish affection for a local waitress (Mary Elizabeth Ellis) in self-absorbedly ramshackle terms. (We get the sense that if any member of the Paddy’s Pub crew ever went “straight,” the comic house of cards would collapse; the beauty of the grostquerie is such because there are no foils, and everyone on screen aside from occasional bystanders views the reckless activity as normal and healthy.) As the big plans of “The Gang Buys a Boat” illustrate, the roles within the quintet are as stratified as ever, which promotes predictability (if I told you what becomes of their dilapidated vessel it would hardly be a spoiler).
