Lovely Lauren Tom is an animated actress in every sense of the word. After appearing on the Chicago stage in Goodman Theater’s production of ’Tis Pity She’s a Whore (for the record, Mr. Skin isn’t pitying the titular position), the Highland Park ingenue made the move to the boob tube. Even though she played Julie on the NBC hit Friends (1995-1996) and Dot on the final season of Grace Under Fire (1997-1998), the busy babe is best known for voicing a host of animated shows (including Futurama, King of the Hill, Fillmore!, The Zeta Project, Superman, Batman Beyond, Samurai Jack, Rocket Power, The Kids From Room 402, The Infinite Darcy, Clifford’s Puppy Days, American Dragon: Jake Long, and Codename: Kids Next Door). Luckily, Lauren could actually be seen on the big screen when she starred in the live-action drama The Joy Luck Club (1993). Amusing turns in the comedies Bad Santa (2003) and In Good Company (2004) followed, as did a chance to strut her stuff in the dramedy Manhood (2003). The kinky sequel to Jack the Dog (2001) features John Ritter, Janeane Garofalo, and Lauren in dominatrix duds! All it takes is one peek at her bra-clad peaks, black briefs and whip to make you stiff. Whether appearing on film (Wall Street, Cadillac Man, Blue Steel, Teacher’s Pet), on TV (Max Steel, Homicide: Life on the Street, DAG Quantum Leap, Barbershop, Men in Trees) or on stage (A Chorus Line, Doonesbury, Hurlyburly), Ms. Tom never fails to reveal her … range!
