From call girl to Trump girl, actress Lisa Edelstein has played myriad parts on stage and off. Now she's landed a plum role, starring on the Fox TV series "House," an "E.R."-meets-"CSI" drama. The Boston native heads the fictional teaching hospital that houses strangely ill patients.
In the sleeper hit "Elf," Buddy (Will Ferrell) is a lovable
childlike oaf, raised by elves, who returns to New York to find his real father
and spread Christmas cheer. It's a hip, witty, charming fairy tale that, like
much of Christmas cinema, was created by Jews.
