In the most risky move yet for this insightful series, Marisa Tomei is today's feature. Breakthrough movie: My Cousin Vinny. Most recent movie of note: In the Bedroom. Best attributes: dark hair, dark eyes, and a boatload of class. My Cousin Vinny got her an Oscar but her career has been fairly quiet since then. Unless she gets decent scripts, it will stay that way. If Jennifer Beals made the mistake of calling her to do the lip-lock on that series of hers that few have seen on Showtime, Marisa would leave her with two broken arms.

She has done a couple of fill-ins on Broadway shows. I agree, I think she's very talented.

She's very active in New York theatre, which is really where she came from in the beginning. Naked Angels Theatre company, she's one of the founding members - and they're still around.

I love Marisa - and yeah, I thought she was terrific in In the Bedroom.

Uh...Lip Lock??? Jennifer Beals, Marisa Tomei. Yes. Yes, I think that will do nicely. You may fire when you are ready, Gridley!
