Sheryl Lee

  1. Amy Brenneman,  Lesser Prophets, 1996.     Pregnant wife of  a wisecracking detective (Scott Glenn – but Dennis Hooper at first). Much of the supporting cast was similarly wasted,  said  Nathan Rabin, at The Onion AV Club site,   particularly Brenneman, “whose dialogue mostly just revolves around her character’s chronic inability to control her bladder.”
  2. Brenda Strong, Desperate Housewives, TV, 2004-2012.     The once-upon-a-prime-time Twin Peaks star was the first Mary Alice Young in the first (unaired) pilot.  Brenda took over, suicided and then her Mary-Alice  narrated the series.
