Movie: Species (1995)

The common perception is that Michelle Williams, a recent Oscar nominee for her portrayal of the oft-imitated Marilyn Monroe in the indie film My Week With Marilyn, first stepped onto the scene in the hit teen drama series Dawson’s Creek, but that’s not completely true. Sure, her work alongside James Van Der Beek is what launched her current stardom, yet it’s a largely forgotten role in the 1995 science fiction/horror hit Species that really kick-started Williams’ hustle. Hers was an important part, too, playing the kiddie version of Natasha Henstridge’s sexy man-eating alien beast. You could call it My Week With A Supermodel Who Poked Her Tongue Through Guys’ Skulls.
