Notable Role: Carol Solomon in In a World... (2013)

Yes, we all know Lake Bell. She was in Boston Legal, How to Make It In America, and she played the girl who didn't get the guy in No Strings Attached. Basically, she's been on TV and in movies for, like, a decade. But now, she's stepping her game up. She recently wrote, directed and starred in the Sundance favorite, In a World..., as an aspiring voice actress, Carol, who has to get out of the shadow of her famous father. This year, it looks like Bell herself is stepping out of the shadow of supporting roles and into her own spotlight.
