My Weekend Crush

Few women arch an eyebrow quite as well as Elizabeth Mitchell. It just sits there, cocked and ready. It waits for your next move. It knows things. No, I’m not kidding, it really knows things. It knows what it’s like to kiss Angelina Jolie. (For the record, it’s “pillowy and fabulous. Honestly, you got lost in her lips. It was almost overwhelming, like a peach.”) It knows what it’s like to kiss Laura Innes. It knows what it’s like to roll around naked with Angelina Jolie. Look, it just knows things that we will never know.

One of the many great things about Elizabeth is that for a beautiful woman she is awfully scrappy. You wouldn’t think it at first with her delicate features and willowy frame. But that girl can scrap. As Juliet on “Lost” and now as FBI agent and alien fighter Erica Evans on “V,” she brings a competent intensity to her portrayals. I think to truly play brainy and tough well, you have to be a little bit of both. And Elizabeth is a lot of both. But what she also has is the ability to convey incredible empathy. Like if she were to look at you with those blue, blue eyes she would know you instantly and completely. And if she were to cock that eyebrow at you, well, if you’re really, really lucky maybe you’d get to know her, too. Happy weekend, all.

I gotta say, I'm gonna have to agree here.

And V was actually pretty good! :)

As the holiday season approaches, I am always excited for an excuse to watch her in the Santa Claus movies. She is both funny, cute, and sexy in them, something different than her recent TV roles :)

Uh-huh, what you said, Dorothy.

She can cock that eyebrow at me anytime (and then some).

i've always been in lust with elizabeth mitchell and i've always been in lust with morena baccarin so it thrills me beyond words to be able to have them both together in the same place for a whole hour just for my viewing pleasure.
btw, this pic of elizabeth is awesome and it perfectly illustrates the "eyebrow that knows things!"
now if only we could get a post about morena as well...hint, hint...wink, wink.

I completely agree that sometimes an actor's own smarts come thru in spades. There's always the wheels turning behind those (lovely) eyes and I find her a fascinating actor to watch. Good call.

Weird. I was watching "Boston Legal" just last night and coveting her... Great lesbian minds, I suppose.

Big Shamu said...

How do I feel about Elizabeth Mitchell? Much like Daffy Duck and a cave full of jewels and treasure... MINE, MINE, IT'S ALL MINE.

I so suck at sharing.

She is a phenomenally beautiful woman. She played brilliantly opposite Jolie in Gia.. Really, she did play the part well.

Happy Weekend.

Oh Snarker, how could you forget EM kissing on yet another woman in Nurse Betty?

You hit in the nail on the head with the comment about her empathetic eyes! That kind look in her eyes and her gorgeousness in Gia were breath-taking! She was a big part in making Gia a great film to watch.

Is it just me, or was your site taken over? I typed in your address earlier and got some weird Christian doomsday website. Did you get hacked?

I don't normally swear, but..

HAPPY FUCKING WEEKEND, INDEED!

Elizabeth Mitchell is "the" one. Really, that "Gia" stunt is something not at reach of anyone. One of my favs since then. ER broke my heart with her letting go.

Hail Lost for putting her on the rigt spot - the lights.

Also in possession of incredibly hot eyebrows:
Kate Walsh and Sara Remirez. Yum!
