Role: Goldie Clemmons in The New Normal (NBC; Tuesdays at 9:30/8:30 Central)
This Scot is a newcomer to the American screen, but her role as Goldie in The New Normal, from producer Ryan Murphy of Glee and Nip/Tuck fame, is sure to secure her recognition. The show follows a gay couple as they choose Goldie as their surrogate mother, and—following Murphy’s usual formula—mixes good times and controversy, topped off with a homophobic, racist grandma. Yikes. But just know this: King’s girl-next-door look works well for her character as a hot mama to her 9-year-old daughter and a soon-to-be surrogate to David (The Hangover's Justin Bartha) and Bryan (Andrew Rannells, who performed in The Book of Mormon on Broadway). Can you say "MILF?"
