Brittany Daniel is blonde, hard-bodied, stacked, and there are two of her. Technically, Brittany’s identical twin sister Cynthia Daniel is her own independent person, but the Florida siblings broke into show business together back in 1994 as Jess and Liz Wakefield on the syndicated teen series, Sweet Valley High.
Cynthia retired from acting after Sweet Valley ended in ’97. Brittany, however, went on to a career that mostly seemed based on being a smart blonde comedienne with serious dramatic skills–as shown off when she made a bold big-screen debut seducing Leonardo DiCaprio in the drug-fueled 1995 drama The Basketball Diaries.
Brittany began her post-High career with a stint alongside Michelle Williams on Dawson’s Creek, and followed up with sitcom guest shots and scorching spreads in glossy mags like Stuff and Maxim. Brittany became a staple of big-screen comedies throughout the first half of the 2000s, simultaneously raising temperatures and busting guts in Club Dread, White Chicks, Little Man, and–most memorably–as David Spade’s tank-topped, Daisy-Duke-shorted love interest in Joe Dirt.
In 2006, Brittany joined the cast of the CW (and now BET) series The Game as football wife Kelly Pitts for its first four seasons. Then she dropped out of that show in 2011, and seemingly disappeared. Now we have Brittany back in the news as she gets back in the Game while revealing that she’s been recovering from serious health issues.
We’ve included some recent shots below to show how much Brittany has recovered, and we’re also impressed by how many hot shots we’ve pulled from The Game. The cast seems as serious about getting sexy as the gals over at The League. But we also have lots of vintage pics of Brittany in bikinis for lots of other movies, plus eye-popping pics of her MILFish turn in Little Man–which is part of her long association in Wayans Brothers films, because she’s Keenen Ivory Wayans’ longtime girlfriend, but we bet that she was single in some of these shots…
