Gretchen Mol

A Hollywood obsession who never quite was, Gretchen Mol is intimately familiar with the persistent uncertainty that is big-screen stardom. After a tumultuous stretch of highs and lows in the 1990s and a quiet but steady return in the early 2000s, this year Mol landed among the cast of HBO’s freshly-launched period drama “Boardwalk Empire.” Playing the seldom-clothed mistress of a prominent prohibition-era gangster, Mol — along with her… um… features — has been a crowd pleaser so far, and here’s hoping we’ll see more of this corset-clad lady as the series moves forward.

A word from Mol: “It’s not like I have a master plan or anything.”
