Nerd Girl of Note #134: Jennifer Love Hewitt (@TheReal_Jlh)

Jennifer Love Hewitt is perhaps the most ignored member of the B-Movie community. Don't get me wrong, she is successful, and well know, but I think she falls into the "A" crowd for the most part, yet much of her work is very "B" movie fans positive. Coming from me, this is obviously not a dig, but rather praise. Hewitt's exploitation resume is pretty good, when you think about it. Two I Know What You Did Last Summer films, both horror/teensploitation, The Tuxedo with Jackie Chan (an "A" film with a "B" film's soul), and she did the voice of Medusa on Disney's Hercules. Then, of course there is her latest long-running venture, The Ghost Whisperer.

Scoff if you must, but The Ghost Whisperer is pretty well done, both from a watchability standpoint, and a marketing standpoint. It is not overly "chicks only" but appeals to the Lifetime Network's audience. It has a mixture of Charmed and Touched By An Angel, so it appeals to most age groups. Add its cast of revolving recurring characters, and it gains longevity. And there are not a bunch of slouches going in and our. Camryn Manheim, Aisha Tyler, Jay Mohr, and Jamie Kennedy.

So, give JLH some love, would ya?

@Ogriv83 - Somehow I have never seen IKWYDLS. Weird, that.

@Erik - I still call her Jennifer Love Hugetits. I am sick :-)

She is quite chesty in everything she has done. Heartbreakers and the I Know What You Did over the course of some summer or another series are worth watching once in my opinion.
