Ain't It Cool News (


I am – Hercules!!


On early episodes of “24,” there was an insanely sexy terrorist character played by Mia Kirshner I liked to call Naked Mandy. Mandy liked to get naked but “24” aired on primetime broadcast television, so we got to see mostly Mandy’s clothing dropping to the floor. But around the same time Kirshner was starring on “The L Word” and her character on that show liked to get naked constantly. But the “L Word” aired on Showtime so we got to see every inch of naked nympho lesbianic Mia Kirshner. Also getting fully naked? Gwyneth Paltrow’s hot cousin Katherine Moening and hot yogurt hawker Leisha Hailey. (That’s not code; she’s hot and she starred in yogurt commercials.) The science fiction part of the show was Moening’s character was supposedly so butch she was frequently mistaken for a dude.

Recurring characters -- some naked, some not -- are played by Kelly McGillis, Melanie Lynsky, Linda Ko, Lucy Lawless, Helen Shaver, Annabella Sciorra, Cynthia Stevenson, Melissa Leo, Tammy Lynn Michaels, Anne Archer, Cobie Smulders, Heather Matarazzo, Guinevere Turner, Lolita Davidovich, Elizabeth Berkley, Rosanna Arquette, Sandrine Holt, Sandra Bernhard, Kelly Lynch, Kristanna Loken, Alexandra Hedison, Kate French, Jane Lynch, Karina Lombard, Cybill Shepherd, Lauren Lee Smith, Rose Rollins, Marlee Matlin, Jane Lynch, Erin Daniels and the white hot Texiranian Sarah Shahi.
