You may know her as “that girl in the indie films,” or “the often-disgruntled girl,” but starlet Kat Dennings is at long last emerging as one of 2011′s most promising actresses.
The 25-year-old is no spring chicken when it comes to acting. Since nabbing a guest role on HBO’s “Sex and the City” in 2000, Dennings has worked her way up in the entertainment industry through the small screen to the big screen, dabbling in sitcoms, indie films, and big-budget films alike.
Dennings’ past work includes starring alongside Michael Cera in 2008′s quirky romantic comedy Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist, a supporting role in The 40-Year-Old Virgin, and playing the pivotal love interest in cult classic Charlie Bartlett.
Thanks to the new CBS series “2 Broke Girls,” Dennings is no longer playing supporting roles, but leading the sitcom with her quick wit, snarky one-liners, and undeniable talent. Dennings plays Max, a rough and tough Brooklyn girl set on working her way to opening her dream cupcake shop by waiting tables at a dive diner with her best friend. After making its fall premiere on Sept. 19, “2 Broke Girls” received several complimentary nods from viewers and critics alike, eventually securing itself a full season run on Oct. 5.
When it comes to Dennings, the future is bright and full of promise. The actress is set to star in the upcoming film “Renee,” which chronicles the struggles of addiction and self-harm faced by Renee Yohe, the young woman who inspired the formation of the To Write Love On Her Arms foundation.2 Broke Girls, actress, CBS, film, indie, Kat Dennings, Michael Cera, movies, tv
