Dan Aykroyd, Jane Curtin and Laraine Newman played Beldar, Prymaat, and Connie. Here, an an IRS agent, played by Steve Martin, conducts an audit on the suspicious family. Jane Curtin was a staple on the show from 1975-1980, with impressions ranging from Ann Landers to Betty Ford to Dolly Parton. Since then, she's found plenty of work on both the big and small screens. She spent six seasons as Allie on CBS's hit show "Kate & Allie," voiced a wasp in DreamWorks "Antz," took the Coneheads to theaters in 1993, played opposite a few other TV aliens in "3rd Rock from the Sun," and recently played Melissa McCarthy's mom on "The Heat."
