Born November 8, 1968, best known for such movies as Dazed and Confused, Party Girl, The Doom Generation, The House of Yes, Scream 3, Josie and the Pussy Cats, Blade: Trinity, Superman Returns, and all of Christopher Guest's mocumentaries. Has also guest-starred on The Simpsons, Futurama, and Boston Legal.
This actress contains examples of:
- Brilliant but Lazy: Her role in Party Girl showed her as a typical 90's slacker that was capable of doing more.
- Deadpan Snarker: Almost every role she's in.
- Identical Stranger: Put a blonde wig on her and you've pretty much got Elizabeth Banks.
- Mean Character, Nice Actor: As mentioned, she has played a lot of nasty characters but she is known as being very professional and easy to work with.
- Nerds Are Sexy
- Older Than They Look: She's in her early 40s, but doesn't seem to have aged much over the past couple decades.
- Playing Against Type: She played The Ditz in Superman Returns, going against her usual, intellectual character type. Also, even though that character worked for Lex Luthor, she was actually much nicer than many of her characters... even the law-abiding ones.
