Lizzy Caplan had recurring roles on Freaks and Geeks and Tru Calling before earning a leading role on the short-lived 2006 sibling dramedy Related as a party-planning drama queen. But her memorable turn as a Gothic outcast in the 2004 teen screen comedy Mean Girls expanded her options. Because of the secrecy surrounding the monster film Cloverfield, Caplan auditioned knowing nothing about the plot and only that producer J.J. Abrams was involved. Tackling a variety of roles, Caplan captures the essence of an addict on the TV series True Blood as easily as the humor in the '80s flashback Hot Tub Time Machine.Lizzy Caplan Fast Facts:
