Busy Philipps

Busy Phillips is Kim Kelly! You guys! Okay, she’s done more than that (although she wouldn’t have to and she would still be great). She’s had recurring roles in Dawson’s Creek, Love Inc, ER, and Cougar Town. But back to Kim Kelly. At first you don’t like her but then you like her and you really want her and Daniel to work things out and for her and Lindsay to stay friends! I’m going to go watch Freaks and Geeks, but you guys can go to her Twitter (linked) or IMDB (linked) to find out about her non-Kim Kelly life.
