After gaining notice as a tough surfer in "Point Break" (1991) and a feisty young baseball player in "A League of Their Own" (1992), actress Lori Petty was all but assured of a stardom befitting her talent. But as luck would have it, Petty often struggled throughout her career to build off her initial success. She immediately followed up these two hits with rather underwhelming fare like "Free Willy" (1993) and the Pauly Shore vehicle "In the Army Now" (1994), before gaining a degree of notoriety - both for good and ill - with a leading role in the frenetic, and all-too-confusing post-apocalyptic flick, "Tank Girl" (1995). Her polarizing performance, which earned a substantial cult following, wound up hurting Petty's feature career, which led her to accept more roles on the small screen. Following a failed attempt to create her own series with the short-lived "Lush Life" (Fox, 1996), she appeared as a guest star on episodes of popular shows like "Star Trek: Voyager" (UPN, 1995-2001), "ER" (NBC, 1994-2010) and "NYPD Blue" (ABC, 1993-2005), while voicing the villainous Livewire on both "Superman: The Animated Series" (The WB, 1996-2000) and "The New Batman Adventures" (The WB, 1997-99). Her fortunes improved with her feature directing debut, "The Poker House" (2009), which allowed the talented performer to branch out into a refreshing new direction.
