Answer: She is. You've spotted Traylor Howard in her second TV series. The Florida-born actress (from Orlando) got her start doing Juicy Fruit gum commercials. In her first show, Boston Common (a midseason series that lasted from 1996-97) she played a graduate student and object of series' star Anthony Clark's affections. Now she's gal pal Sharon on ABC's Two Guys, the network's most successful midseason tryout. There's no word yet on whether the show will be back in the fall.
