There was a time, we'll call it the late 90s, when Natasha Lyonne seemed like she was gonna be the next big thing. She had a corner on that sexy bad girl with smoker's voice market when Scarlett Johansson was still making movies like Home Alone 3 and The Horse Whisperer.

Natasha achieved indie film success with Slums of Beverly Hills and But I'm a Cheerleader, and crossed over to the big time in such franchises as American Pie and Scary Movie. Then she stopped making movies that people saw. And I don't mean she stopped making movies, she's got a shit load of credits on her imdb from 2002 through her landing on Orange is the New Black, but it's a whole bunch of shit you've never heard of before.

Well, she's now headlining a series for the first time with Russian Doll, a new Netflix show she co-created with Amy Poehler. On the show, Lyonne plays a woman who is desperately attempting to escape a party being thrown in her honor, only to find herself in a hellish Groundhog Day-esque loop of the same day that always ends with her being killed.

It's a pretty interesting concept, though perhaps not as novel in light of the success of movies like Happy Death Day, but I'm willing to give it a shot. Russian Doll debuts on Netflix on February 1.
