Her career didn't really start to take off until 2005, when she was cast as Izzie Stevens on ABC's "Grey's Anatomy," but Katherine Heigl has been, ahem, capturing the imaginations of discerning babehounds for many years. In fact, when she joined the cast of the WB's "Roswell," the combination of Heigl's tremendous natural assets and the show's sci-fi roots threatened to do more for the sexual awakenings of lonely nerds than anything since Carrie Fisher's wire bikini in "Return of the Jedi."
2007 saw Heigl beginning her campaign for big-screen domination with a role in Judd Apatow's "Knocked Up." The movie's overwhelmingly positive reviews and sure-to-be-impressive theatrical gross should be enough to wipe away unpleasant memories of the days when Heigl was forced to play opposite the likes of Steven Seagal and Johnny Knoxville. And just in case it all goes wrong, there's always that "Grey's Anatomy" thing to fall back on.

Katherine on the Screen
Katherine doesn't have too many memorable roles to her name as of yet, but she's slowly emerging as one of the few It Girls with actual promise. Along with parts in a slew of bad films like "Bride of Chucky" and the much-publicized "Zyzzyx Road," Katherine also appeared as a series regular on the teen sci-drama "Roswell" before eventually earning a spot on ratings monster "Grey's Anatomy."
