>Lake Bell

In Million Dollar Arm, Bell plays a doctor renting a guesthouse from Hamm’s J.B. Bernstein, but she’s also there as the movie’s conscience, keeping J.B. in line. It’s a natural fit for Bell, who’s always the smartest or funniest person onscreen. She’s hilarious in Children’s Hospital and brilliant in her film directorial debut, In a World, about a voice-over artist. Here’s hoping she has more where that came from.
