Not only has she starred in a hit indie comedy film, and been in a couple others in notable roles, and her breakout broadway role in the massive high profile hit of Hello Dolly... she also is starring in the upcoming Ryan Murphy series on the Bill Clinton/Monica Lewinsky scandal... as Monica. She is about to be much more known as a face and name than she's been up till now. I don't think they thought casting Beanie was the same as casting a relative unknown, like Bianco, who is supremely talented but was probably never in contention for this role except on a long list of "maybe worth considering if you dont' go with a name" from the casting director. Again no disrespect to the amazing Bianco. She deserves to be better known and I hope she is soon.
