Vanessa Angel - Episode 350

Steve Cooper talks with actor Vanessa Angel. Vanessa is best know for playing Lisa in the USA TV series for 5 years and for her role asClaudia in the movie Kingpin. She began modeling at 16 when she signed up with Eileen Ford and relocated to New York. After taking on a Russian accent for Landis' goofy Chevy Chase-Dan Aykroyd comedy, she studied the craft further at the Actors Studio. She combined her past and present professions playing a model in a guest appearance on TV's Melrose Place and starring in USA's TV movie The Cover Girl Murders. Along with TV, she worked in feature films throughout the 1990s, mostly expanding upon her first experience with movie comedy. After landing bit parts in Abel Ferrara's crime noir King of New York  and the ill-received Sylvester Stallone comedy Stop, or My Mom Will Shoot, Angel next appeared as part of the ensemble cast in the independent romantic comedy Sleep With Me and starred as objects of affection in Kissing a Fool. In recent years she has appeared on both screen and on television is movies such as Hall Pass, Trouble Sleeping and Christmas Spirit and shows such as Saving Grace, Criminal Intent, Entourage, Californication and many others.
