With a hit sitcom and a new movie coming out, “Dharma & Greg” star Jenna Elfman has a few tips for staying sane in Hollywood. “Do other things,” Elfman, 27, told Time Out New York magazine. “I don’t just act.

It becomes achy, sore and tiresome.” Although she co-stars in the upcoming film “Ed TV,” Elfman feels typecast by her perky character on “Dharma & Greg.” “I want people to start offering me some big dramatic parts,” she said. “Sometimes people get locked in this spunky girl thing, like I do every week. I want the opportunity to do other things, too.”
