As I told you last week, I fired early on Mila Kunis.
With her new movie opening today, she should have been our featured hostess.
But that ship has sailed.
So, instead I spent the early part of the week researching and pondering this week's selection.
Then I torqued the shit out of my knee in Muay Thai class on Tuesday night. It hurt like hell (still does), but it gave me some time to sit an peruse.
And peruse I did.
I perused until this appeared in my Facebook feed.
Something(s) there caught my attention.
Please say hello to Robin Tunney.
Ms. Tunney first appeared on our radar in the box office bomb/cable staple, Empire Records, where she played Debra, the shaved head chick with the death wish.
From there she went on to practice her witchy ways in The Craft.
She's also appeared in Encino Man, End of Days, Hollywoodland, Vertical Limit and Prison Break.
Since 2008, she's been appearing on CBS' The Mentalist opposite Simon Baker. If its on CBS, it must be a procedural. I've never watched a moment of the show, but I know its really popular with my in-laws.
Of course, if Ms. Tunney solved crimes dressed like that picture up there, well, I think their demographic might skew younger.
Let's hit the links.
