Later this week, the movie "Bad Teacher" opens in theaters, and most of the marketing for the movie has centered around the hotness of star Cameron Diaz (as well as one line in particular from Jason Segel), but I don't even think Diaz is the hottest female actress in the movie. No, that honor instead goes to English actress, and this week's DGOW selection, Lucy Punch.
Punch isn't a huge name in Hollywood, but she's made her mark in recent years, starring in the Woody Allen movie "You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger" and playing the scene-stealing Darla alongside Paul Rudd and Steve Carell in "Dinner for Schmucks". Going back a few years, she was in the short-lived CBS sitcom "The Class", which given the strength of its quirky cast (Lizzy Caplan, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Andrea Anders, Jason Ritter) probably should have lasted longer than 19 episodes.
Of course, if it had, then we might not be getting Punch in "Powers", the upcoming pilot and hopefully series from FX. Given the show's strong source material (the original comic was written by Brian Michael Bendis), hopefully it won't fail like so many "next 'Heroes'" shows have, and it could even launch Punch to the next level of stardom.
