This is the first in a series (of indefinite length and regularity) of pieces pointing out odd action figures of unlikely actors. People known more as character actors than action stars, and thus unlikely candidates for plastic representation.
Our first honoree is Julianne Moore, the emergency back-up Clarice Starling:
Moore has been acting since the '80s, and after starting on soap operas and made-for-TV-movies, her first film was Tales from the Darkside. She worked her way up the supporting actress ranks, and a small part in The Fugitive led to Steven Spielberg casting her in The Lost World: Jurassic Park.
And it was this role, as Sarah Harding that earned her an action figure in Kenner's Lost World toyline.
She's been in numerous critically acclaimed plays and films, is one of only a handful of actors to get Oscar nominations in both the Best Lead and Best Supporting categories in the same year, and had a recurring role as Nancy Donovan on NBC's 30 Rock. And thanks to Jurassic Park, you can own her in plastic.
I'm looking forward to more installments of this feature!
Put this figure with a Mark Ruffalo Hulk and the wimpy boy from Hunger Games, and you've got yourself 3/5ths of a The Kids Are All Right movie line!
Wow, when it comes to the intricate details of capturing a SINGLE BABY STEGOSAURUS, she is freaking PREPARED! I never cease to be amazed by the hilarious awfulness of the Jurassic Park toy lines.
