Where are they now?

Remember Blair's cousin Geri with cerebral palsy on The Facts of Life? Remember how conducive she was to Very Special Episodes? Well, Geri Jewell's latest role was on the HBO Western Deadwood, which I've never watched, but which I understand is a bit grittier than The Facts of Life, even the episode where they go into New York City and a teenage hooker tries to recruit Tootie.

You could have seen Mindy Cohn, by the way, earlier this year in Daniel Waters' Sex and Death 101, where she plays the lesbian assistant to a womanizing restaurant exec who receives a mysterious e-mail listing all 101 women he has—or will have—slept with. Ol' Natalie's still as spunky as ever. See the trailer here.

I think of Ms Cohn mostly as a voice actor these days, in particular her work as Velma Dinkley.

Geri Jewell was one of the very best parts of a fairly awesome TV series.
If you have NetFlix, "Deadwood" is well worth the watch.
The moment Jewell dances with the town's doctor for the first time ever had me in tears.
