Question of the Day

What one actor/actress would you like to see in hir own television series, with a perfectly matched writer and director and superb supporting cast?

On any given day, I could give a dozen different answers, but since she was already top of mind this week, I'm casting my vote for Anna Deavere Smith.

Not that I want to steal her away from Nurse Jackie, but she is just the greatest. I first remember seeing her in The American President; it was a small part, but she totally grabbed my attention. She was a total scene-stealer in Rachel Getting Married, too.

And don't even get me started on Gloria Akalitus. SO. GREAT.
