12 Actresses Getting By On Their Looks Alone

Jessica Alba Into The Blue
They're insanely gorgeous and have amazing bodies, but that's about all in the case of these 12 actresses; all of whom we believe are only famous for their looks.

Consider stars like Jessica Biel and Jessica Alba. Does anything in either of their filmographies stand out? If so, it's a good bet they were cast in it for their looks alone.

Biel had a promising career thanks to 7th Heaven but in 2000 she posed topless for Gear magazine, thinking it would land her more mature roles. All it really did was get her noticed for how hot she was and cast as the desirable eye-candy types -- like the ...

Whedon Gives Satisfying Conclusion In 'Dollhouse' Series Finale

2/1/2010 11:39am EST
Dollhouse finale
Well, here it is. The end of "Dollhouse." Let's talk for a minute about this doomed-to-start-with show. A lot of fans want to blame FOX solely because of how the studio has canceled two of Joss Whedon's shows. They certainly did not give it much of a chance by putting it on Friday at the death slot, but they did give it two seasons and some reasonable marketing to try and get a bigger audience. It never had the ratings, and let's face it, the first season wasn't as good as it should have been. Most of the first episodes were weak, and you could argue that it was from FOX changing Whedon's "...

'Dollhouse' Recap: The Evil Mastermind Is Revealed

1/11/2010 10:27am EST
Joss Whedon has a fiercely loyal and loving fanbase, and it is occasionally an abusive relationship. He likes to destroy characters that the fans love so the pain is fresh and unique, and he likes to throw twists at us that stab our hearts. It happened all the time on "Buffy The Vampire Slayer," like when Buffy had to stab Angel, or Tara was shot through the window, or in "Angel" when Fred was turned into Illyria or Doyle sacrificed his life, or then in "Serenity" when Wash became a victim of the Reavers, and finally when the only sweet character in "Dr Horrible's Sing-Along Blog" was accid...

'Dollhouse' Is Focused On An End Point

12/21/2009 1:22pm EST
Well wonderful, "Dollhouse" continues to give the best episodes in its short lived two seasons now that it is canceled. The world is an unfair place. Last week was the last double episode night featured, and from there there are only three episodes left. Depressed? I am getting there now that the show is clearly focused on an end point and everyone is acting to their best. The first of the two episodes centers on Victor, which is exciting since he's the best actor on the show and we've been teased with glimpses of his background.

Victor is actually Anthony, a PTSD-suffering soldier from ...

'Dollhouse' Recap: 'Meet Jane Doe/A Love Supreme'

12/5/2009 9:14pm EST
So "Dollhouse" is back, but only as long as it takes them to get out the rest of the season since it has officially been canceled. The hilarious part of this is that they aired two episodes last week, and both were exceptionally well done. The show is finally getting it together just as it is canceled. How wonderfully cruel. Rather than do two recaps of the episodes, they basically blend together so this will be one big recap. Ready? Ready! Did I fall asleep?

Senator Perrin, aka the delicious Alexis Denisof, is making an aggressive push against the Rossum company and the Dollhouse. He go...
