#61 Victoria Carroll

Victoria Carroll actually had some real talent as a comedienne. In fact, she would eventually become a founding member of the Groundlings, the improv troupe where Laraine Newman, Will Ferrell, and Lisa Kudrow got their start. Unfortunately, her talents weren’t recognized until she was well into her career. As a result, her film credits are mostly pure eye candy. Very nice eye candy, mind you … Later, she did a ton of voice-over and TV work. BTW, she still looks incredible today, at age 74.
