She's not a lead actor in "Masters of Sex" (heck, she's not even a series regular), but we'd be lying is we said we weren't zeroed in on Annaleigh Ashford's performance in the buzzy new Showtime series (premiering Sunday, Sept. 29). As prostitute Betty DiMello, the Tony-nominated Ashford (seated in the photo) brings the funny (and dares to bare all) while playing one of Dr. Masters' (Michael Sheen) early subjects in his pioneering study of human sexuality. Sheen and Lizzy Caplan may get top billing, but viewers will walk away talking about Ashford, no doubt.
