CP Episode 67: Barbie On Steroids (Ladies Night Pt2)

CP Episode 64: That Girl That Was In That Thing

In this episode Shawn, John, and Rick went back to complete the thought from the "That Guy" episode a few weeks ago. This time they talk about some wonderful actresses that have been in tons and tons of things that you've seen many, many times. These are women that are known for being able to play an array of characters, but they're not usually the leading lady. Because of that, you may not have ever learned their names. But their performances have definitely left and impact on us.
