Julie White, 'Go On'

You know her as: Anne, the type-A lesbian widow in Ryan's (Matthew Perry) grief support group Why we like her: It's not like we didn't know White had the goods -- the veteran actress even managed to wring a laugh or two out of "Cavemen" a few years back. But "Go On" has been an excellent showcase for her razor-sharp wit and excellent timing, while at the same time letting her play some of the frustration and heartache of losing a spouse. She and Perry also have fabulous comic chemistry together, evident in the episode where he plays wingman for her at a wedding. Where else you've seen her: White's long list of credits includes playing Shia LaBeouf's mom in the "Transformers" movies, "Grace Under Fire," the aforementioned "Cavemen" and "Michael Clayton." -- Rick Porter, Zap2it NBC
