A voice-over gig as a sexually confused killer doll in the gory slasher comedy Seed of Chucky.

(Laughs) It was a very special night, although the more awards that Return of the King won, the more I got kind of jumpy about it. I didn't want everyone else to win and then find out that Peter Jackson had been passed over. Any other year but this one and Master and Commander would have done amazingly well. I actua read more
