8. Zoe Lister-Jones taps into her maternal side.
Actress/writer/producer Zoe Lister-Jones might be most recognizable for her recent work on sitcoms like New Girl and Whitney, but she's been making her own indie films for years. Alongside creative collaborator (and real-life husband) Daryl Wein, the two wrote and produced 2009's Breaking Upwards, 2012's Lola Versus, and Consumed, which is slated for release later this year.
Lister-Jones has played her share of tough and sassy broads, but that doesn't mean this Brooklyn-born beauty doesn't have a softer and more delicate side.
Zoe joins the cast of Life In Pieces as Jen, wife of the youngest Short sibling, Greg, played by Colin Hanks. This new mother is a fiesty powerhouse who's used to being in charge, but she might have to release control after giving birth to the couple's first child.
Check out Life In Pieces when the show premieres Monday, September 21 at 8:30/7:30c.
