    Portia is very attractive. but, she is not funny. i thought she was the worst actor on better off ted. Ellen should produce some drama for her instead. i will bet my bottom $ this show fails. also because it will be written by the guy from Samantha who. another boring show that ultimately failed. good luck Portia. you'll need it. stick to drama. or at least dramadey like alley mcbeal.

    d.f. you have it completely wrong. I'd say Portia's best ever role was on Better off Ted, she was hilarious and the only reason to watch the show. She isn't as good at drama, her strongpoint is comedic roles. Hopefully it will be good since Ellen had success previously with this sort of sitcom. I'll watch when it comes along.

    Arrested Development and Better Off Ted were GREAT shows, love Portia. Hope this one gets the attention it deserves!

    Portia queen of the f*cked up crayon eyebrows.

    Portia was great on Arrested Development. It's not a smart move to mix marriage with business. If Ellen wants to play Svengali and it fails, it could very well damage their relationship.

    Samantho Who was hilarious and Poria is amazing so I'm really excited!

    What the hell happened to Portia's face?? She is one of the most beautiful people on this earth yet she decides to have surgery that turns her face into a platypus? I seriously hope she's just frowning wierdly here because it would be sad if she did have surgery to look like this!
    Also, wish her the best with the new show!
