Guys, I am so sorry I have been absent so long. Real life got really busy and I just had a hard time finding inspiration. I swear I will be back for a proper recap very soon!
I was watching the new Melrose Place tonight (I know, I know) when this idea came to me. I realized why some of the actors on MIOBI were so familiar–I’d seen them in other bad movies/TV shows! So I did a little imdb-fu and uncovered some awesomely recappable gems from their dark, dark pasts:
1. Rosa Blasi a.k.a. Ma Cruz
Ahh, the one who started it all. While watching Melrose, I thought I saw a vaguely familiar rich, bored housewife:
She’s getting cheated on by her slimy husband. Guess it’s karma for stepping out on Alex!
2. Chelsea Hobbs a.k.a. Emily Kmetko
She seems to have specialized in made-for-TV movies which are probably pretty bad and not worth spending the time recapping, but I did find one spectacularly recappable flick on her resumé: Perfect Body, a fabulously cheesy and fabulously 90s gymnastics flick starring the pink Power Ranger.
3. Cassie Scherbo a.k.a. Lauren Tanner
Was in one of the 134324321 Bring It Ons. I think I actually caught this one on TV once, and it’s not an experience I care to repeat. But due to Cassie being in a fairly major role and a tenuous connection to Twilight fandom (Coupon’s in it), I might feel compelled to take one for the team here.
4. Cody Longo a.k.a. drug dealer Nick
Was in yet another Bring It On, which I watched out of sheer boredom and possible recap-ability. Wei Wei from Stick It was in it, as well as John Locke’s ma. It’s starting to really chagrin me to see Lost repeatedly six-degree-ing this show.
5. Susan Ward a.k.a. Chloe Kmetko
I hit pay dirt with her. So much recappability in her resumé! But this is a young adult lit blog, so no Wild Things 2 for you! I would like to get my hands on Malibu Shores sometime, though… Charisma Carpenter and Keri Russell, and so gloriously 90s. And how could we forget this opus?
I remember this movie! It didn’t make much of an impression on me at the time, but now that I know Matthew Settle was in it, I might feel obliged to recap it. It’s pretty 90s-licious, too (ehhh, 2000 counts as the 90s as far as I’m concerned).
There’s more potential recappability on other actor imdb pages, but I don’t think any power in this ‘verse could get me to watch any of the stuff on Creepy Carter’s resumé. Even I have my limits.
