Lizzy Caplan’s filmography is like a list of my favorite things: Freaks and Geeks, Party Down, American Dad!, Undeclared, that one legitimately good season of True Blood, Mean Girls, Childrens Hospital, New Girl, Comedy Bang! Bang!, and the excellent Masters of Sex. So it’s no wonder that we’re obsessed with her, having covered everything from her Rage Face to her plea to let men be funny for once.
Today is Caplan’s 32nd birthday, and with Masters returning very soon (July 13th, to be precise), we’d be doing you a disservice if we didn’t round up some of her sexiest moments.
1. That time she made a convincing case to watch Masters of Sex for GQ (and we did!).
And in Interview, too.
2. Pretty much everything Casey Klein did on Party Down.
3. I can’t link to every sexy Masters of Sex sex scene (“Will you two stop saying ‘sex’ so much?”), but they’re easy enough to find on the Internet; plus, there’s this.
4. She was a drunk, naked delight on the True Blood set.
“I was hammered for that … I didn’t really have many lines (that I needed to remember). It was 7 in the morning, and I was chugging vodka, and I was completely naked while a make-up artist I had just met was on her knees sponging my ass … I have never told anyone this, but I was so drunk, and I was so nervous, that after I shot the scene, I was going up to the crew members — I had just met them the day before — and I was going up to all of them, and I was like (drunkenly), “You’ve got a boner. You do! You got one!”
