TV alert: Jennifer Coolidge on “Nip/Tuck”

Yeah, I’m starting to loathe Nip/Tuck, but I decided to finish the season, mostly to see Jennifer Coolidge in the finale tonight.
You may know Coolidge from Best in Show (she got to kiss Jane Lynch!), For Your Consideration, American Pie or Legally Blonde.

She almost always plays characters who are described as “dim-witted,” but you have to be smart to play that dumb — and to be that funny. Here’s a clip from Best in Show.



“We could not talk or talk forever, and still find things to not talk about.” Love it!

Here’s hoping Coolidge’s Nip/Tuck character will get to retain a little dignity … oh, who am I kidding? She wasn’t exactly dignified the first time she showed up: She played a Hearts and Scalpels patient who had a, um, lip transplant. That means what you think it means.

Coolidge also has several film projects in the works, if you just can’t bear to tune in tonight. And if you haven’t seen Best in Show, rent it now!
