Today’s Guest: Brittany Snow, actress, Pitch Perfect, Hairspray, “Harry’s Law”
Actress Brittany Snow is part of a small but growing contingent of Tampa Bay area natives making their mark on network TV.
With the debut of “Harry’s Law” on NBC – in which she co-stars with Kathy Bates and Nate Corddry — Snow will rejoin the primetime spotlight alongside St. Petersburg’s Monica Raymund – star of “Lie To Me” – and Tampa’s, Maulik Pancholy of “30 Rock.” (Angela Bassett is from St. Petersburg and Channing Tatum is a fellow alumnus of Brittany’s from Tampa’s Gaither High School, by the way.)
BRITTANY SNOW podcast excerpt: “Zac Efron dropped me a couple times when we were doing our dances for Hairspray. He didn’t have that good strength back then.”
I think my favorite Brittany Snow moment to date was in the movie Hairspray, in which she played Michelle Pfeiffer’s spoiled daughter Amber. The movie was my daughter’s Grease and we’ve seen it dozens of times.
Brittany, who has been acting since she was a child, was a star of “American Dreams” and had a recurring role on “Nip/Tuck.” On the big screen, you’ve also seen her in John Tucker Must Die, The Pacifier, Prom Night and last year’s Janie Jones.
In “Harry’s Law,” which airs Mondays at 10 p.m. on NBC, Brittany is once again playing alongside a major talent: Academy Award winner Kathy Bates, who plays the title character, Harry. Brittany is her assistant and shoe salesman – I’ll let her explain that part.
