Lizzy Caplan, 'The Class'
"The Class," CBS
You know her as: Kat Warbler, moody sister of that girl in the wheelchair who sounds like she might be deaf
Why we like her: Well, it all goes back to a little show called "Freaks and Geeks." We've stuck with her through "The Pitts," several episodes of "Tru Calling," "Related" and now through "The Class," where she's really the most reliably funny part of the show. One of these days Caplan will find a show that's as good as she is, since few TV actors of her generation can do biting and jaded quite so well. May we suggest that Amy Sherman-Palladino secretly find a way to work Caplan into her new FOX sitcom? That seems like a good pairing.
Where else you've seen her: All of the previously named shows plus features like "Orange County" and "Mean Girls."
