Celebrity Apprentice 2011 Contestant Marlee Matlin

Posted by on March 6, 2011 at 8:10 PM EST

Oscar winning actress Marlee Matlin joins Celebrity Apprentice 2011.

Marlee Matlin is one of the most decorated members of cast of this new season of the Celebrity Apprentice 2011 which airs tonight at 9PM on NBC. Marlee will be putting her skills to work competing on the show as she tries to earn money for the Starkey Hearing Foundation. As far as I am aware she is the first person to appear on the Celebrity Apprentice that has a disability. Marlee, for those who don’t know, is deaf. She also happens to be an Oscar-winning actress. She won the Academy Award for Best Actress and Golden Globe Award for Best Actress for her role in Children of a Lesser God.

Having appeared in more than 20 movies and TV shows, the Apprentice’s Marlee Matlin has been on everything from the hit show The West Wing, to Seinfeld to the comedy My Name is Earl. Marlee has received an honorary Doctorate of Humane Letters from Gallaudet University in 1987. She is now on the university’s Board of Trustees. Marlee Matlin is married and has four children. It will be interesting to see how well she is able to communicate with her fellow Apprentice cast mates especially when she takes her turn as project manager. I have a feeling she will do pretty well on this season of Celebrity Apprentice.
