    This is exciting.

    Rumor is that CHERRY JONES has been cast as the female president for next season's 24.

    Cherry has won 2 Tony Awards for her work on Broadway and is - in my opinion - one of our greatest American actresses that you've probably never heard of!

    This Thread is Useless Without Pictures.

    I just assumed that's where imdb or Google images fills in the gaps. And as Bierboy mentioned, not missing much.

    so that means what?
    - you guys just want to check out how "HOT" the lesbians look?

    pretty lame dudes.

    Cherry Jones is a great actor - I first saw her 25 years ago at the American Repertory Theatre in Boston when she was a member of the acting company who went on to great success on Broadway and then never made it past a couple of minor film roles.

    I started this topic because I was excited by the fact her talents as an actor might be seen by a mainstream audience. If it's all about eye candy, trust me she's not going to make the (sexist) hottest babes on TV thread.

    Whoa, son!

    I was just answering your question - the answer to which I only knew because I Googled it earlier today when I saw it in this thread and didn't know what it meant myself.

    There are times I can read an actor's/actress' name and not recognize it, but I might recognize that I've seen someone when I see a picture. Then again, I look to the tools on the web for finding such things (such as the meaning of TTIUWP, as mentioned earlier).

    May not be such a great habit to get into to ask a question and then slam someone when they answer it.

    If your response was not directed at me, then I won't take it as such. If it was directed at me, then let me just say I don't know you from Adam, either, and am not making judgements about you. Show me the same respect.

    It wasn't directed at you at all and I thank you for responding to what the abbreviation was...

    And perhaps I mis-understood the intention, but it read like the original poster was asking for pics for that reason - not to identify the actors - which if I am incorrect and identification was the purpose then apologies for my mis-understanding.

    Given the big grin, I think that was the intent of post #6. I just wanted to be clear that it wasn't mine. It's all good.

    Great new that Cherry has been cast, but sad news for our team that Sarah Paulson plays for theirs. Either way, two great actresses.
