A good-natured Southern actress whose penchant for comedy was measured by her ability to play more femme fatale roles, actress Jaime Pressly first gained attention for her provocative layout in Playboy, which naturally led to a string of B-movies that primarily focused on her physique. Following supporting turns in a number of forgettable features, Pressly made her leading debut in "Poison Ivy: The New Seduction" (1997), but managed almost immediately to avoid being typecast with a regular role on the short-lived drama "Push" (ABC, 1998) and a part in the teen comedy "Can't Hardly Wait" (1998). After a lull that included menial roles in "Inferno" (1999) and "Poor White Trash" (2000), Pressly shined as the star of the all-too-brief sitcom "Jack and Jill" (The WB, 1999-2001), before landing more feature roles in a diverse array of projects like "Joe Dirt" (2001), "Not Another Teen Movie" (2001), "Karate Dog" (2004) and "Death to Supermodels" (2005). Her perseverance in surviving such films finally allowed her to land the role of Joy Hickey, ex-wife and chief nemesis to Jason Lee on the popular comedy "My Name Is Earl" (NBC, 2005-09). Able to show off her knack for broad comedy, Pressly's exuberant turn as the crass and selfish Joy earned her several accolades, including an Emmy Award, and opened doors so she could once and for all prove she was more than a pretty face.
