Current role: Tessa Altman, Suburgatory (ABC)

Suburgatory is one of the best sleeper sitcoms on the tube right now, but it wouldn’t be anything without the perfectly cast Jane Levy as the prototypical city kid relegated to the hellish 'burbs. The role could be as run-of-the-mill as the cookie-cutter neighborhood, but Levy imbues her performance with a sarcasm and desert dryness that all but steals the show out from her dad and co-protagonist, played by the capable Jeremy Sisto.
