Alicia Witt

Wasn't she supposed to be big? What happened?

by Anonymousreply 6307/28/2015

Blackballed and sabotaged by Cybill Shepherd.

America doesn't like Gingers.

by Anonymousreply 209/06/2013

Even beautiful and talented people don't make the A list. Alicia is a working actress.

OP Lauren Ambrose happened, that's what happened.

by Anonymousreply 409/06/2013

Cybill and Deedee Pfeiffer outcunted her.

by Anonymousreply 509/06/2013

is Lauren Ambrose happening? Ambrose pretty much just did TV.

by Anonymousreply 609/06/2013

How odd...just watched a second season rerun of the Sopranos with her in a guest role circa 2000. She was meh and bland. That's probably why she is in the where are they now files

by Anonymousreply 709/07/2013

She IS big. It's the parts that got small...

by Anonymousreply 809/07/2013

Lauren Ambrose and Alicia Witt are very different. Their only similarities are age and hair color.

by Anonymousreply 909/07/2013

Ambrose isn't really happening. And she's vastly more talented than Witt.

Every few years there's some version of That girl. Not always conventionally attractive. Sharp tongued and deeply sarcastic. Gets a lot of the laugh lines, and an occasional complicated love interest.

They get a lot of attention for a few minutes. Then their show gets c canceled and nothing much happens for them.

Tell me about it, R10.

Bingo, R11.

Like Sara Gilbert, Alicia Witt has severely limited range. She played the disaffected teen very well, making people think she had a lot of promise, but she just isn't very convincing in any other type of role.

r12 - Jane Levy, a.k.a. Emma Stone without boobs.

by Anonymousreply 1509/07/2013

She has no talent whatsoever! Very hot though.

by Anonymousreply 1609/07/2013

Lauren Ambrose is thousand miles more talented than Alicia Witt, they don't even belong in the same sentence.

by Anonymousreply 1709/07/2013

So true, R10. And a very depressing thought, too.

Kelly Reilly

by Anonymousreply 1909/07/2013

What R14 said.

She was excellent on Cybill and made me a fan. But she's blown in everything since. She did several episodes of Law & Order as a fill-in detective, and she was more wooden than Elisabeth Rohm.

R20 Bitch, do NOT fuck with The Umlaut!

Hey, I've been reduced to doing a supporting role on a Canadian TV series.

by Anonymousreply 2209/07/2013

Modestly talented and completely devoid of charisma.

There's a reason why some people fade out quickly.

by Anonymousreply 2309/07/2013

Didn't she also have a stint on Ally McBeal?

by Anonymousreply 2409/07/2013

I found her terrible on Cybill. Well the show itself was terrible. Still watched only because I found her so hot (and had nothing better to do).

by Anonymousreply 2509/07/2013

WHO are you people talking about?! She does not even show up on google, lol.

by Anonymousreply 2609/07/2013

Lucky bitch. She got to fuck Peter Krause at his prime.

by Anonymousreply 2809/07/2013

She works more than about 90% of actors.

More proof that Hollywood has fucked up priorities, R29.

by Anonymousreply 3009/07/2013

She just finished five movies

R27 - She is the sister of the Kwisatz Haderach.. The Abomination.

Yup, r10 and r11.

- The teen redheads from Still Standing, Reba, and that show with John Ritter and Katey Sagal -

"The Understated, Monotone, Acerbic Redhead"

It's a classic sitcom character type. Many have already been mentioned.

by Anonymousreply 3409/07/2013

One of the movies she just finished is Tyler Perry's A Madea Christmas co-starring Chad Michael Murray and the DL's very own Lisa Whelchel

by Anonymousreply 3509/07/2013

Her voice was really annoying in Cybill.

by Anonymousreply 3609/07/2013

R35, that's also DL's very own The Chad.

Had a friend who worked on Cybil. Witt was a major Bitchy McCunterstein.

by Anonymousreply 3909/23/2013

Limited talent, unlimited and inflated ego and sense of entitlement.

by Anonymousreply 4009/23/2013

I read an interview of her around the time she was on Cybill. Very arrogant, huge ego. She felt she was amazing because she only has to read a script once and then remembers all the lines. She does it by tapping into who the character is and the words magically flow. *roll eyes*

I'm glad she hasn't done well. She strikes me as someone who would think much higher of herself than anyone around her would.

by Anonymousreply 4109/23/2013

R39 Hey I had a friend who worked on Cybill, among several other shows in the 90s. He is from London and back here in London now , never know could be the same guy! I posted this before in a thread about working on TV sets and said my friend had also told me that Alicia Witt became a nightmare after she started seeing Peter Krause. Thought they were above the material. Cybill's show was not up with the best of it's era but compared to crap nowadays like "Whitney", its practically Seinfeld.

He said Cybill was actually always fine and along with Tom Wopat was the nicest on that set. He said Christine Baranski was always pleasant but literally as soon as the filming was done walked off set in the clothes she had on and was in a cab back to the airport to get home to New York and be back for the table read of the next episode. He said Dedee Pfieffer is totally nuts. I remember years later after he told me some of these stories reading that Dedee's boyfriend died in suspicious cirucumstances and Dedee was present. Maybe he took the last line of coke and she flipped...

by Anonymousreply 4209/23/2013

I would like to see Cybill again in reruns to see if it holds up but I never see it listed. My favorite episode was Christine Baranski casually dating Tony Bennett.

by Anonymousreply 4309/23/2013

Alicia had a small, but well done role in Two Weeks Notice.

Lauren Ambrose and Laura Prepon stole her career.

by Anonymousreply 4509/23/2013

Why are all the redheads lumped together? They are very different.

by Anonymousreply 4609/23/2013

She's been dating Ben Folds.

by Anonymousreply 4710/02/2013

Lookswise, she was quite well cast as Cybill's daughter.

by Anonymousreply 4810/02/2013

Alicia doesn't look all that much like Cybill, but she does so in comparison with Jennifer Love Hewitt.

by Anonymousreply 4910/02/2013

r42, everything you say is exactly what Cybill herself says in her autobiography: Witt and Krause thought they were above the material, Christine was out the door as soon as she delivered her lines, Cybill was nice...

If you had just said the first two, I would have thought you were verifying Cybill's claims, but given the third claim, I suspect you're just getting all this from Cybill's own book. No one in the world thinks Cybill is nice except Cybill herself.

by Anonymousreply 5010/02/2013

I read that's she's in the next season of "Justified" as Dewey Crowe's cousin!

by Anonymousreply 5110/02/2013

Ben Folds?!? 47 years old and 4 times divorced. Good luck with that.

R 47, how many times has she dated Ben Folds?

by Anonymousreply 5602/09/2015

Ugh, R56, she seems to take herself SO VERY SERIOUSLY. Wringing every bit of empty drama she can out of the three notes she can kinda hit. Hamfingers on the keyboard too.

Like a more sullen Majandra Delfino, although at least Majandra has real talent, mostly singing, some at acting.

by Anonymousreply 5707/27/2015

Majandra, for comparison.

by Anonymousreply 5807/27/2015

A total BORE that rode the late 90s teen wave as long as she could. Unfortunately she couldn't do higher quality horror movies like Scream 2 and I Know What You Did Last Summer.

by Anonymousreply 5907/27/2015

Was a fairly bright light on a middling sitcom ............. didn't 'pop' big in a business with a lot of competition. Wasn't she a regular for a while on a Law & Order or something ? Just became one of many young actresses that didn't hit the big time.

I couldn't even listen to a minute of that song at R56 ................ that's neither fairly bright nor middling

by Anonymousreply 6007/27/2015

Why did John Waters like her? Or was she a studio decision in Cecil B. Demented?

by Anonymousreply 6107/27/2015

Get a load of her awful parents - yeah right she was humming lullabies at a few hours old. Good grief.

If she's ghastly, they are why. It's not healthy to be 'golden childed'.
