We should recognize that Julliard graduate Jessica Chastain, who is the Hollywood serious-drama debutanate of the year, was the 2004 DS pilot's Carolyn Stoddard. I remarked at the time that she was the classically-trained standout of that cast and wondered how the role would grow with her abilities!
