Hometown: Aspen, Colorado
Role: Kate Fox in Ben and Kate (Fox; Tuesdays at 8:30/7:30 Central)
Funny girls have taken over your screen, and newbie Dakota Johnson isn’t one to miss—she has already racked up fame by appearing in films like The Five-Year Engagement, 21 Jump Street, and The Social Network. In Ben and Kate, Johnson stars as Kate Fox, sister to oddball brother played by Nat Faxon, who you might remember from Beerfest or Reno 911!. Ben moves in to help Kate care for her 5-year-old daughter, Maddie (a college-era "oops!), and it's a situation primed for constant laughs. Bonus: Lucy Punch, the hilarious Brit from Bad Teacher and Dinner For Schmucks, stars as Kate's sexy, free-spirited best friend.
