Cheryl Hines has been in several movies and TV shows, but she is probably most associated with two television programs in particular - "Curb Your Enthusiasm" and "Suburgatory."
She was so convincing as the wife of Larry David - who played an exaggerated version of himself - in "Curb Your Enthusiasm" that when the show first debuted on HBO in 2000, her friends back in her hometown of Tallahassee, Florida thought she was really David's wife. (Her character's first name was also Cheryl.)
She currently plays Dallas Royce in "Suburgatory," an ABC series poking fun of lily-white upper-middle-class suburbia. Her character is a stereotypical self-absorbed suburbanite with superficial goals.
In 2009, Cheryl Hines directed Serious Moonlight, a black comedy about a woman (Meg Ryan, previously featured on this blog) who wants to stop her husband (Timothy Hutton) form leaving her.
