Think of Lizzy Caplan as the new standard-bearer for sarcastic, three-dimensional cool girls with excellent style. “I guess my predecessor is Janeane Garofalo,” Caplan says, channeling the famously bespectacled comedian’s proto-hipster persona in 1994’s Reality Bites. “Winona Ryder was still the leading lady in that movie. Now you can be both of those characters—a leading lady who has a bit of a bite to her.” Familiar to audiences for her work on Mean Girls, Cloverfield, True Blood, Party Down, and a recent guest-star appearance on The New Girl, Caplan has now taken the lead in two well-received Sundance features: she’s a bookstore manager avoiding an engagement in the romantic drama Save the Date, and she teams up with Kirsten Dunst and Isla Fisher (the three of them play characters she describes as “the opposite of loveable”) for a bride-to-be fête gone awry in the Will Ferrell-produced dark comedy Bachelorette. Caplan plays Jenna, who has a raging cocaine problem. “Our film is much more of a Neil LaBute play,” she says, addressing inevitable comparisons to Bridesmaids. “Jenna is probably the angriest character I’ve ever played, but you see a bit of her heart by the end of it.” Caplan also stars opposite Michael Sheen in the Showtime pilot Masters of Sex, directed by John Madden (Shakespeare in Love), a steamy drama in which she plays Virginia Johnson, the revolutionary 1960s sex therapist. “It’s very cool to be weirdly vindicated in this way,” Caplan says. “For a lot of women like me, [acting] has been about trying to change elements of our personality to fit more generic female roles. And now we’re not having to contort so much.”
