Though she will always be most closely associated for her role in the classic TV show Cheers, Kirstie Alley had a long career in the movies as well.
From the Vulcan Starfleet officer Saavik in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan to the spunky mom in the Look Who's Talking series, Alley's brassy attitude was one of her most notable characteristics.

Although it's set in modern day, 'Mud' feels untethered to any particular time, but it's absolutely anchored to a place: southeast Arkansas, where the Mississippi River and its tributaries are the way of life. Two young teenagers stumble across a man on an island (Matthew McConaughey) who seems intent on not being found, and gradually they piece together his story and become active participants in his plan, even though he's being hunted. And as life on the river changes, the boys have to grow up and suffer pain and heartbreak of their own.
