Way Back When: January Jones

EDIT
|

You know her as Don Draper's icy ex-wife Betty on 'Mad Men' or the even icier Emma Frost in 'X-Men: First Class,' but in today's Way Back When, we take a look at January Jones before she was famous.

'Get Real'

This short-lived Fox TV series had one hell of a cast, including Anne Hathaway and Jesse Eisenberg, and the pilot episode features an appearance by one Miss January Jones in one of her very first roles. Jones plays Jane Cohen, a pretty and popular girl whom Eisenberg's character is crushing on:

'Taboo'

In 2002, Jones starred in 'Taboo,' a movie about a group of friends who get together to play a game where they answer sexually explicit questions -- but their answers are used to kill them! We're not sure how this movie wasn't made in 1998. Maybe someone misplaced a sticky note reminder. The film also stars Amber Benson of 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' and Nick Stahl:

'Anger Management'

Jones had a very small but memorable role in the Adam Sandler/Jack Nicholson comedy 'Anger Management.' She plays an adult film star who, along with her lesbian lover, attacked a guy during a threesome. Enjoy!

'American Wedding'

In the third 'American Pie' film, Jones plays a goody two-shoes preppy lady who Stifler (Seann William Scott) has his eye on -- so naturally he pretends to be a good guy to get in her pants. Stop us if you've heard this one before.

'Love Actually'

British Collin has a tough time landing a lady in the UK, so he heads to America to try his luck there, since American women love guys with accents. His first stop is a bar in the Midwest, where he meets Elisha Cuthbert, Shannon Elizabeth and January Jones -- ding ding ding! Winner!

'Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights'

Remember that 'Dirty Dancing' sequel from 2004? Sorry, we know you've been trying to forget. We hate to bring up bad memories.

Anyway, January Jones played a snobby, privileged white girl -- and so the typecasting begins!
