Buttressed by two of the most prominent cheekbones in the cathode realm today, Julianna Margulies has parlayed her ability to hold a no-nonsense expression for the duration of a an entire teleplay into a lucrative and lasting career as a serious television dramatist. But more than being a thrilling and chilling thespian, Julianna is also a roiling cauldron of fire-eyed brunette sensuality. Beneath the life-and-death demeanor of Julianna’s crisis-junkie character on the medical melodrama ER is a steady stream of physical passion that clearly hints at reserves of loin-tingling lust. For further evidence of Margulies’s animal nature, scan for suggestive behavior in Newton Boys (1998), The Man from Elysian Fields (2001), and Slingshot (2005) -- although her upper anatomy exposure in the last instance is the work of a Body Double. On the later seasons of HBO's classic Mafia series The Sopranos, Julianna came dangerously close to banging mob boss Tony Soprano (James Gandolfini) before going to the mattresses, literally, with junkie Christopher Moltisante (Michael Imperioli).
