If you've been vicariously living through Vincent Chase during the last season of HBO's Entourage, you've no doubt elt the sting of journalist Sophia Lear, played by actress Alice Eve. For those of you still trying to recall where else you've seen her, think back to last year's underrated comedy She's Out Of My League, in which she literally portrayed "the perfect woman" opposite Jay Baruchel's lanky, pale, and bumbling self.
