Jennifer Esposito

Her beauty and Brooklyn roots set Jennifer Esposito apart, helping her to benefit from the late-1990s New York indie boom. She notched roles in acclaimed indies as well as two Spike Lee films, "He Got Game" (1998) and "Summer of Sam" (1999). Esposito also appeared in a number of supporting roles in movies like "I Still Know What You Did Last Summer" (1998), "The Bachelor" (1999), "Dracula 2000" (2000), and "Master of Disguise" (2002). She also had strong roles in "Don't Say a Word" (2001) and the Oscar-winner "Crash" (2004), but had her biggest successes on television, as Michael J. Fox's sassy secretary on "Spin City" (ABC, 1996-2002), the starring role as the eldest sister on "Related" (The WB, 2005), and Christina Applegate's best friend on "Samantha Who?" (ABC, 2007-09).
