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.

Often noted primarily for the morbid state that many of the film's stars found themselves in shortly after filming, the on-screen content of The Misfits is no less bleak.
