Welcome to CinemaToast.

(August 2001)

Up and comers. A couple of actress that have tickled The Toast's fancy.

Alyson HanniganAlyson SaucyWe first saw Alyson Hannigan in the charming science fiction movie My Stepmother Is an Alien (from 1988 with Dan Aykroyd and Kim Basinger). She was a cute kid with a flair for comedy and a killer smile. Later she settled in as the trusty sidekick Willow to TV's Buffy the Vampire Slayer. As the sometimes comic relief, her perfect comedic timing has been shown many times. Besides her regular TV appearances, she can be seen in American Pie (1999) and the currently running American Pie 2 (2001). Her "band camp" routine has all of us here at The Toast rolling in the aisles. As you can see, she's not a cute kid any more.

Megara (Meg) Susan EganWe first heard Susan Egan as the voice of Megara in the rollicking Disney animated film Hercules (1997). Her smoky femme fatale and wise-cracking attitude was one of the best things about the movie. The Toast sat up and noticed. Susan is not only an actress but she's a an award-winning singer. On the stage, she's done everything from Bye, Bye Birdie to Triumph of Love. She won wide acclaim as Belle in the Broadway production of Beauty and The Beast and played Sally Bowles in the 1998 stage revival of Cabaret. Susan can currently be seen every Sunday night on The WB. She plays a fellow Las Vegas dancer along side Nikki (Nikki Cox) and is a cynical, wise-cracking, tough talking dame, and is terrific. The Toast is not much of a television watcher but we catch Susan Egan (as Mary) in the TV show Nikki as often as we can.
