WHERE ARE THEY NOW?: Brittany Murphy & Leah Remini
While it's true that Brittany Murphy hasn't been completely out of the limelight, as she voices Luane on FOX's "King of the Hill," she hasn't exactly been front-and-center either. The last time I saw her in a movie was during a whim Netflix Instant Watch viewing of 2006's Love and Other Disasters. However, according to IMDb, she has several projects in the works for 2009: the horror flick Deadline with Thora Birch, the thriller Across the Hall with Mike Vogel, and the made-for-TV Lifetime mystery romance Tribute with Jason Lewis ("Sex and the City"). But as the year progresses she'll start filming more mainstream stuff, like Sylvester Stallone's The Expendables, Robert Rodriguez's Sin City 2, and the crime dramedy Poor Things with Rosario Dawson.
Leah Remini ("King of Queens") was on maternity leave and now she's returning to TV for ABC's newest comedy "Don't Try This." It "examines marriage and parenthood through the eyes of three couples." Matthew Lillard (Without a Paddle and Scooby Doo) plays her stay-at-home husband.
