...If Trachtenberg is looking for some career advice, she need look no further than co-star Lucy Lawless, who plays the painfully beautiful Madame Vandersexxx in the movie. After six years as Xena: Warrior Princess, she also is trying to carve out a career beyond what her fans expect.

“The warrior princess roles just don’t stop coming,” the stunningly beautiful 5’1’’ actress laughs. “No, that’s a lie, but they do want me to do action, that’s for sure. They want me to be in outer space, they want me to be killing vampires, and I had to tell them recently that I’m just done with the gods and monsters stuff. All I want to do is comedy, that’s what I love.”

Alec Berg, David Mandel and Jeff Schaffer have worked together in television for thirteen years and are so single-minded that they often finish each other’s sentences.
