I'm surprised Piper Perabo never became a bigger star. Maybe because she was never offered better roles (Cheaper by the Dozen? Beverly Hills Chihuahua?).
Me too. She's a very good actress. Add in to that her flawless beauty and she screamed movie superstar. That said, I actually have more respect for tv actors than I do for movie actors. It is MUCH harder to make the equivalent of 10-12 movies a year (2 episodes equals one movie) and keep up people's interest and give consistently good performances than doing a movie or two a year in my opinion.
