Julianna Margulies continues odd career with Sci Fi Channel miniseries

Julianna MarguliesJulianna Margulies' post-ER career has been eclectic, to say the least. Instead of leveraging her star-making role as nurse Carol Hathaway into years of leading-lady movie roles, she has decided to go the more funky route, playing supporting roles in smaller movies (and in the summer's most anticipated cheesy movie, Snakes on a Plane), doing Broadway plays, and taking guest shots in series like Scrubs and The Sopranos.

Now comes word that she will star in a "limited series" for the Sci Fi Channel called The Lost Room. She'll play a mysterious woman who's brother was killed for a hotel room key. What the detective she reaches out to (Peter Krause of Six Feet Under) finds out is that the hotel room is...

Well, I won't spoil it for you, but you can imagine what'll be in that room. But the big mystery is what happened to Margulies' career. Is this a matter of someone being typecast or a case of a good actor being able to pick and choose her projects? Let me know your thoughts in the comments.

Ha! I love these old stories. People from 2006 were such idiots because they couldn't see into the future.

My guess is that she made enough money from E.R. that she feels that she doesn't need to get the big movies and the paychecks that come with them, rather doing what she wants to do. I don't know anything about her personal life, but that might have something to with it too.
