Ellen Pompeo was discovered by a casting director in 1995 while working as a bartender in New York City. The very next day, this near dead ringer for Renée Zellweger landed a L'Oreal hair commercial, the first of more than twenty TV spots she did before bagging a bit part on a 1996 episode of Law & Order. She made her first film appearance in the bomb Coming Soon (1999), which went faster than it came. Her career burst wide open when she appeared opposite Jake Gyllenhaal and Oscar winners Dustin Hoffman, Susan Sarandon, and Holly Hunter in the tearjerker Moonlight Mile (2002). Unfortunately, her blouse did not burst wide open at any point in this film. She did appear briefly topless (no nipples, though!) as the flight attendant who popped young Leonardo DiCaprio's cherry in Catch Me If You Can (2002). In the comic-book based flick Daredevil (2003), Ellen played Ben Affleck's secretary, who, in the comic book, became a heroin addict and a prostitute who gets AIDS. This didn't happen in the movie, but there's still hope for the sequel (as these kind of events usually accompany the revealing of skin). Luckily, we can now get a weekly dose of all-healing Ellen on the hit series Grey's Anatomy. It's a nice way to pass the time while waiting for her to hit the big screen with some bare anatomy.
