Default Stephnie Weir -- Thief !!

First of all, let me say Steph is my favourite performer on the show. That is why I found this so funny! One night while channel surfing - apparently Stephnie's character is a complete copy of a character that was done by another actress on another show! You can say "based on" or whatever, but I saw this performance and it has everyhing Weir's character Dorothy Lanier has : the over-the-top dramatics, exaggeration, the same hair even, it was hilarious! Theres no way its a coincidence. I can just imagine when Stephnie saw her she must have known that character was too good to pass up. Here's proof :http://simon.helenheart.com/gallery/violet/index.html

What show is it from and who plays the character Steph copied? And is the character a real person? Is that what you mean?

The link doesn't work.

edit: now it works.

The character does look very much like Stephnie's character Dorothy... But I'd have to see it for myself to judge...

It looks to me like Stephnie is just parodying this character, is it supposed to be a serious show where this characters from? cause that would explain a few things.

Wow! That is freaky! Maybe you should write MADtv and ask.

I'm actually a really nice girl in real life.

Even if she just copied exactly how this character acted it would be good enough. AS far as i could tell the actress in this show was being serious, I mean it wasnt a comedy, I think it was simply bad acting. Im an actor myself and ive seen enough bad acting to know it when I see it! She had all the over the top mannerisms, I would love to see it again, but its from a made for tv movie starring the guy from 'Manimal'(a short lived series on NBC form either '83 or '85)

Or it could be a coincidence.

In honor of Family Guy possibly returning...

Guard: You're not a shoplifter, you're just a fat kid. Sorry about that fatty fat fatty. Hey Tom, he's just a fat kid! Aren't you, fatty? You're just a big ol' fat kid. Here's some chocolate, fatso.
Chris: Thanks!
Lois: Oh, honey, no one thinks you're fat.
Lifeguard: I'm sorry ma'am, you can't park your van on the diving board.
Lois: This is my son!
Lifeguard: Oh. My apologies. Hey Tom! He's not a van, he's just a fat kid!
