Lizzy Caplan is so five minutes from now

Lizzy Caplan is so five minutes from now — Why we think the actress is the next big thing in comedy

Posted on

WHAT SHE’S DONE:
After stealing scenes in Mean Girls and The WB’s Related, she landed in the pilot for The Class, from Friends co-creator David Crane.

HOW SHE’S DOING IT:
Think Janeane Garofalo’s biting wit mixed with the heart of…Janeane Garofalo. Okay, just think a younger, hipper you-know-who.

WHEN SHE’LL BREAK BIG:
Starting in September. Caplan will be the one reason to watch The Class, a comedy about reunited schoolmates, Monday nights on CBS.

WHY YOU SHOULD ROOT FOR HER:
The 23-year-old lives with two cats: Colbert, named for Stephen, and Lisa Turtle after — yep — Screech’s beloved on Saved by the Bell.
