After several memorable comic turns in supporting roles in films like Adaptation and Elizabethtown, she hit a home run as Kitty the nympho secretary in Arrested Development.
I mean, she pulled a Levy (as in Eugene)...come on!
Then along came Love Monkey, but it crashed and burned. Sigh.
Now I find out Greer's starring in a new series/pilot for Fox entitled Miss/Guided where she apparently plays a guidance counsellor who returns to work at her old high school.
Here's hoping it scores a high grade....
On the Canadian front, another actress I was thinking about is Gabrielle Miller....
She's more than mastered the funny in a sweet and quirky yet attractive kind of way in Robson Arms and as Lacey in Corner Gas...but I'd love to see her try to go edgy and sarcastic in a sassy sexy way a la Sarah Silverman or Julia Louis-Dreyfus.
Just for fun, ya know?
What other comic actresses or actors out there would you like to see get a show or try out a different type of role?
