She's been one of TV's most reliable performers ever since making her series debut 20 years ago in an episode of Quantum Leap, and now she's reuniting with Scott Bakula on TNT's seriocomic sleeper. In between, McGraw has played everybody from Jerry's hit-and-run girlfriend on Seinfeld to Scully's ill-fated sister on The X-Files to Don Draper's showbiz conquest, Bobbie Barrett, on Mad Men.
On Men, she's well-cast as Erin, a former actress who's drawn back into the business — and into Terry's life — when a series of cheesy commercials they made in the '80s become a YouTube sensation. McGraw is funny, sexy and real, and you can certainly understand why Bakula's habitual miniskirt-chaser finally falls for a woman of a certain age.
