Who is that Actor: Stacey Travis
If you recall the scene in Ghost World where Steve Buscemi’s character attempts to eat ice cream while his real estate girlfriend tries to get him to dance to Ashford & Simpson’s “Solid” in her showcase showdown furnished apartment then you have seen Stacey Travis.
Here’s Travis, in familiar snooty lady territory in Julie Brown’s “Girl Fight Tonight” video. I love this song.
Travis always seems to show up as a nervous spouse, concerned citizen or a pushy busybody. She also seems to spend a lot of time with a, “it’s smells like feet” look planted on her face. I don’t know what it is about her face, which is pleasant, that compels casting agents to put this classically trained actor in so many bit parts, but there it is.
By far my favorite Travis appearance is in Bandits where she plays a nervous hostage who puts saffron in her spaghetti sauce, dazzling Billy Bob Thornton and sobbing at regularly scheduled intervals.
