Valerie Cruz

Before she signed up to play a do-good doctor without borders in “Off the Map,” Valerie Cruz spent some time on the opposite end of the medical spectrum, portraying a not-so-helpful psychologist throughout the first season of “Nip/Tuck.” That role disappeared without a trace (another tragic victim of Chuck Cunningham syndrome) but Cruz went on to appear in such shows as “The Dresden Files,””Dexter,” and”True Blood.” Does anyone else think she looks like Minnie Driver? But better looking and with a less-stupid name? No doubt.
