Yes, it’s a direct ripoff of Esquire but I doubt if my choices match theirs.
GINA BELLMAN – If you just watch her on LEVERAGE you won’t know that in the British version of COUPLING she was absolutely hilarious. Somehow can play both sexy and goofy at the same time. I don’t know how she does that.
ELENA KAGAN – Handled the confirmation hearing with aplomb and humor and resisted the strong temptation to call Rep. Senator Tom Coburn a fucking moron for asking her if a law could be passed forcing Americans to eat fruits and vegetables. She has more willpower than me, that’s for damn sure.
JANE LYNCH – Quite possibly the funniest actress currently on the planet. And not just for her work on GLEE. She steals every show she’s in. Check her out in 40 YEAR OLD VIRGIN.
RACHEL MADDOW -- She’s that super smart friend that doesn’t make you feel dumb (even though you are). A fair and balanced political commentator, which makes her something of a revelation these days. When asked her political affiliation she said, "I'm undoubtedly a liberal, which means that I'm in almost total agreement with the Eisenhower-era Republican party platform."
JULIE BOWEN – MODERN FAMILY’S “Claire”. There’s no more thankless role for an actress than the “voice-of-reason TV mom” but Julie nails it. She’s funny, she’s real, and maybe it’s just me but I find her hotter than “Gloria”.
MICHELE TAFOYA – Still the best woman sportscaster out there, even if she can’t dance.
ELIZABETH BANKS – First saw her in WET HOT AMERICAN SUMMER and thought, “Wow! This girl is funny!” Only later in the movie did I realize, “Oh, and she’s also beautiful”. But it’s that “funny” thing that makes her a 10.
MARISA TOMEI – Somehow never ages.
DIABLO CODY – JUNO was not a fluke. I miss her commentaries in ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY.
MARY LYNN RAJSKUB – Her “Chloe” was the most original character on television. I know they don’t teach “exasperation, looking bored, eye rolling, and perpetual scowling” in charm school but they sure work for Mary Lynn. She’s also a great guitarist.
CAT DEELY – So you think you can host? She really can.
MY WIFE -- Happy Anniversary, Debby
