My television “before-they-became famous” lesson for the week was learned courtesy of a post from a great sports blog, Joe Montana’s Right Arm. (love that name…)
Turns out Phyllis Smith, who plays Phyllis on “The Office” and has a role in the new Cameron Diaz film “Bad Teacher”…was not only an NFL cheerleader back in the day…but a burlesque dancer.
Her interview with Slate is here. Certainly, Smith’s youthful work history is a tad more spicy than we’d naturally project for “The Office” wife of Bob Vance, Vance Refrigeration.
