Janel Moloney by Mark Lipson/FOX
Cheers to Janel Moloney for proving there's life after The West Wing. The former Bartlet Administration staffer delivered a brave dramatic turn on House as a single mother battling a mysterious disease that caused partial paralysis, temporary blindness and - in the episode's ickiest scene - bleeding eyes. This high-profile guest shot comes on the heels of Moloney's impressive change-of-pace role on Showtime's Brotherhood as a politician's coldhearted mistress. George W. Bush can only hope for such a successful post-White House career.
