DOBMarch 23, 1976Dec. 29, 1983
BirthplaceFountain Valley, CaliforniaPasadena, California
Known for"Felicity", "Waitress""Community", "Mad Men"
Six Degrees of JossAppeared in "Waitress" with Nathan Fillion (Buffy, Firefly, Dr. Horrible)Appeared in "Cover Up" with Eliza Dushku (Buffy, Angel, Dollhouse)

Analysis: They may only be seven years apart in age, but this is really a generational battle, coming down to whether you prefer the old school ("Felicity") or the new school ("Community"). Personally, I think "Community" is better than "Felicity" ever was -- even pre-haircut -- and Brie gets a boost from her "Mad Men" role too.

Prediction: Before the voting started, I would have guessed Brie in a landslide. As it is, she's currently trailing by the slightest of margins, but I still think she comes back to advance.
