It would be easy to mistake Lindsay Sloane for any number of other nondescript actors. Not that Lindsay Sloane isn’t pretty or worthy of being on the screen; it would just be easy to mistake Lindsay Sloane for any number of other actresses. Part of the reason it would be easy for you to mistake her with someone else is because Lindsay Sloane has that enigmatic spark; that indefinable air of nonchalance and easy beauty colored with a mischievous air of innocence. But at the same time you know Lindsay Sloane has got the wheels turning behind those big brown eyes; in most photos she appears as though she’s just about to break out laughing as soon as the camera turns away. But who is Lindsay Sloane?
Lindsay Sloane: Who is Lindsay Sloane: Is it Jenna Fischer? Is it Anne Hathaway? Is it a brunette Kathy Griffin? Why does Lindsay Sloane look so familiar? Well, you may recognize her so freely because you’ve been watching her on television since she was a small child. Lindsay Sloane had a recurring supporting role on The Wonder Years, Sabrina the Teenage Witch, and was on episodes of My So Called Life, Dharma & Greg, That 70’s Show, and The West Wing among many others. Lindsay Sloane has been percolating just below the surface for some years now and her chameleon like involvement in many different projects has always kept her look fresh and her impression pointed.
Lindsay Sloane: Back Story: Many people wonder about other people and some just live a charmed life. In reality it seems that Lindsay Sloane’s success in the field of acting was due in part to her own spontaneous energy and to her mother’s diligence in getting her to auditions. According to her IMDB page, Lindsay Sloane admits, “…to her own lively nature as a child (so she) took up acting as an outlet for her energy. She developed a real love for the art and signed with an agent at the tender age of 8.” Then she went on to doing all those other television shows, films, and some live theatre. Lindsay Sloane also had a mother who allegedly drove Lindsay to an audition through “the 1992 Los Angeles riots.” Now that’s what I call dedication. Lindsay Sloane also likely had parents who believed in her very much or at least had raised her to believe in herself. That’s because Lindsay went out for all manner of roles like the role of Blossom or the children on Full House and was denied. A lesser performer would have given up after being told no so many times; Lindsay Sloane just kept going.
Lindsay Sloane: Today: All that tenacity paid off for Lindsay Sloane as she’s now in the new Will Ferrell/Mark Wahlberg movie “The Other Guys.” She’s also set to hit screens later this year in “A Good Old Fashioned Orgy,” and in 2011 in “Horrible Bosses.”
