Bebe Neuwirth Bebe Neuwirth Rare and Special Porcelain by Ronald Sklar Oh, snap! Morticia Addams was only one of many morphs in a continually evolving career. Bebe Neuwirth tells me this story, and it’s so Bebe Neuwirth (we’ll discuss in a moment): The “Lilith” part I auditioned for [on Cheers] was one scene.

Joshua Malina in “The West Wing.” Joshua Malina Hail to the Chief by Jay S. Jacobs There are lots of ways that people go about trying to get their first big break in acting. Some people kill themselves working a minimum wage job while floating from audition to audition. Some try other arts, like music or modeling, as an entrance.
