Jessica Alba is the featured guest on Comedy Bang! Bang! this Friday at 10/9c, so we decided to give her a warm welcome with seven reasons why we’re thankful she exists.
1. Idle Hands Was Almost 15 Years Ago
Jessica Alba first hit our radar with the 1999 horror-comedy Idle Hands, where she played the main character’s love interest (and stripped down to her underthings for good measure).
2. Dark Angel Was Awesome
Alba’s two-season Fox action series Dark Angel (created by James Cameron) was cancelled far too early, but we got a lot of good (leather-clad) action on the way.
3. She’s Coming Back for Sin City 2
Even though she refuses to do nudity (her Machete shower scene was done digitally), her role as stripper Nancy Callahan in Sin City was hot as hell.
4. She Named Her Pugs Sid & Nancy
I’m not sure how much Jessica Alba really loves ‘70s British punk, but naming a pair of pugs after Sid Vicious and his murdered girlfriend Nancy Spungen is a pretty cool move.
