Williams-Paisley then appeared in “The 10th Kingdom,” “According to Jim,” and “Nashville.” In 2016, she released a book about losing her mother to dementia and is currently married to singer Brad Paisley.



“Father of the Bride” was definitely a turning point for B.D. Wong, who portrayed the hilarious wedding assistant Howard. After that, he starred in “Jurassic Park” and “Men of War.”

He recently reprised his role as Dr. Henry Wu in the “Jurassic World” franchise and appeared in “Bird Box.” He shares two sons with ex Richie Jackson and is currently married to Richert Schnorr.
