Krysten Ritter is the buzzy new star of “Don’t Trust the B---- in Apartment 23.” The first episode of the sitcom, available to view in full on the Web, airs tonight on ABC. And Ritter -- who plays the “B” -- bares all.
The actress, who most recently appeared in “Breaking Bad,” plays the world’s worst roommate, Chloe: a con artist and exhibitionist who takes in a naïve roomie named June, played by Dreama Walker (“The Good Wife” and “Gossip Girl”), who has just moved to New York City. James Van Der Beek, the “Dawson’s Creek” alum, also stars as a sleazy version of himself.
The shocking -- and shockingly funny -- scenes of the star sent searches for the 30-year-old on Yahoo! surging over 100,000% in the past week. (You can see for yourself in this clip from "The View.")
Ritter's film career includes playing best friends in movies such as “Confessions of a Shopaholic” and “27 Dresses.” The talent also recently wrote and starred in the movie "Life Happens."
And Ritter: “I’m the devil. A nice, fun, Holly Golightly devil.” In this case, the devil wears nothing: In the first episode, the joke is that Ritter is very comfortable with herself wearing only a tan. The clip shows the actress walking around her kitchen making breakfast in the buff.
Sounds like a recipe for success to us.
"Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23" premieres Wednesday, 4/11 at 9:30 PM on ABC.
