Eva Amurri (images -- some NSFW | Web site | Twitter)
Hometown: New York City, according to her Wikipedia profile. She is the daughter of Italian director Franco Amurri and American actress Susan Sarandon.
Best Known For: Eva's longest television role to date has been on Californication, as a college student of Hank's (David Duchovny) whom he later encounters working in a strip club. She's also made appearances on the medical dramas Mercy and House, in the films New York, I Love You and Saved! (which starred fellow celebrity crush Jena Malone), on the sitcom How I Met Your Mother and in the online comedy Children's Hospital.
Quite a few of her childhood and early teen appearances on film are in her mother's projects (the Natalie Portman film Anywhere But Here, an episode of Friends) -- the only one I'm listing below is The Banger Sisters, which I'd already listed for sale elsewhere on this site, under the profile of fellow celebrity crush Erika Christensen.
Why Ye Olde Podcaster Likes Her: In addition to the va-va-voomness, her work on Mercy and House have shown seeds of the same dramatic acting skills that made her mother not just another buxom starlet. Eva may well have the same staying power if she makes the right choices in roles.
