Which actors that have crossed over from movies to tv (or visa versa) do you just LOVE?
Lili Taylor from Six Feet Under has a new show called State of Mind coming out. I am curious to see it; I loved her in Mystic Pizza.
Another favorite of mine is America Ferrera from Ugly Betty. She was great in Real Women Have Curves & Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants.

Gary Sinise has amazed me on CSI:NY. I always used to think he was one scary SOB (on Forrest Gump and Ransom especially), but I like his CSI character.

Will Smith for sure and I completely agree with Lili Taylor. I loved her in Six Feet Under but I think she's outdone herself with State of Mind.
I was also thinking how great it is to see Jason Priestley back in action. He's on a show called Side Order of Life... right before that show State of Mind. I don't know if he's done any notable movies but he's great in this show!

how could I forget to add Michael J. Fox (family ties, back to the future)
add Mr.T to my list (rocky III, The A-team)
Jennifer Aniston went from Friends to movies like The Good Girl, Derailed etc.
John Travolta went from Welcome Back Kotter to movies like Saturday Night Fever, Grease etc.

Yeeah so I've finally been able to catch an episode of State of Mind and I gotta say that Lili Taylor is sooo good in this show! Can't stop watching it. My sundays are dedicated to her.
