It's easy to believe pretty Kelli Williams as Lindsay Doyle, recent Harvard Law grad in ABC's great new drama, "The Practice." She really looks the part, like she's just out of school.
This K. Williams shares something in common with another K. Williams of ABC fame (that would be former "Who's Hot" Kimberly Williams of "Relativity"). They're both attractive, fresh-faced and exude a credible intelligence to their roles.
But where the other K. Williams' "Isabel" has weekly romantic battles, this K. Williams' character often wonders why she's working so hard to keep drug dealers on the street.
Here's some trivia. "The Practice" star Dylan McDermott is often jokingly confused with fellow actors of similar names -- Dermott Mulroney, Dylan Walsh, and Kyle McDermott. Williams made her feature film debut in director Floyd Mutrux's "There Goes My Baby," opposite Dermot Mulroney and Noah Wyle ("ER"). She also appeared in the obscure (yes, you can get it on video) independent film, "E=MC2," with "Ellen's" Jeremy Piven.
But this isn't Williams first foray into series TV. She was a series regular on the drama, "New York News," with Mary Tyler Moore, where she played an eager and ambitious journalist -- as opposed to her role in "The Practice" where she's an eager and ambitious lawyer.
Williams has also dabbled in movies for TV, including "The Jim and Jennifer Stolpa Story," Ron Silver's "Lifepod," "For Their Own Good," with Elizabeth Perkins and Laura San Giacomo, as well as "Mary and Tim," with Candice Bergen.
She's also been a popular guest star on such shows as "Law & Order," "Party of Five," "Sisters" and "Civil Wars."
But it's "The Practice" that's lucky to have her along with the firm.
Alas, as young as she is, the Los Angeles native (who still lives in her hometown), is married to a writer.
Sigh. No matter, we think she's hot and she makes a hot series sizzle more.
