Why we can’t wait to see ”Karen Sisco”
THE DEAL Karen Sisco (Carla Gugino) is a Miami-based United States marshal who has better luck collaring dangerous fugitives with help from her dad (Robert Forster) than handling her own complicated personal life.
WHAT IT’S LIKE The Jennifer Lopez/George Clooney movie “Out of Sight” meets the Elmore Leonard novel of the same name
FUN FACT Gugino left a teen modeling career to pursue acting on the suggestion of her aunt — Carol Merrill, a model on “Let’s Make a Deal” for 14 years.
WHY WE CAN’T WAIT Gugino, who kicked ass admirably in “Spy Kids” and traded witty repartee with Michael J. Fox on “Spin City,” is more than ready for the big time.
WHY WE’RE HOOKED Though Gugino is paired romantically with Peter Horton (“thirtysomething”) in the premiere, it’s only a matter of time before she finds her own George Clooney, so stand back for the fireworks.
