An open letter to Felicity Porter

15315__keri_lDear Felicity,

Or perhaps I should be calling you ”Lindsey.” Yes, old friend, the charade is over. I know all about your clandestine life.

Certainly, I can understand your reluctance to inform the whole world about your sudden and bizarre interest in firearms and international espionage. (Wasn’t it just yesterday you were torn between the innocent pursuits of art and medicine?). But I’m not just anybody — I’m supposed to be your friend, Felicity. Don’t you remember our weekly get-togethers with Elena, and Meghan, and Javier? The cups of coffee we’d sip at Dean & Deluca, the beers we’d throw back at The Epstein Bar? Apparently not. Otherwise, you might’ve called me, let me in on your little secret, taught me a thing or two about encrypting video messages onto microdots — a practice that’s apparently so much cooler than the personalized audio tapes that used to be your trademark.

Speaking of which, I haven’t gotten one of those since May 2002. Yes, I’m keeping track. And hoping just a little that maybe one of these days, you’ll take a few minutes from your hectic schedule of getting adrenaline shots to the chest and leaping onto the hoods of fast-moving trucks to send me another.

Mopily yours,

    OMG I love Keri Russell. I really can’t wait to see her kick some ass in this movie. Felicity is gonna freakin’ rock!

    What I want to know is where the hell is Amy Jo Johnson aka the pink ranger: PTERODACTYL!
    I used to have a HUGE crush on her. Even more so than that trampy Felicity. There for a while then entire cast of this show was stuck in a rut. There for a while Scott Speedman seemed to have garnered the most success out of the foursome (with the UNDERWORLD movies and FRIENDS WITH MONEY). Only lately has Keri Russell struck a comeback (with a hit run on Broadway and now MI:3). But show business is a funny thing.
    Scott Foley might come out of nowhere, start dating J.Lo, and land a starring role on BAYWATCH:THE MOVIE that will garner him both box office and critical success. Although I wouldn’t count on it…
    So Popwatchers: which FELICITY ALUMNI do you think will eventually be the biggest star?

    Michael! You’re back! I know it’s been five days, but can you…um…recap last week’s Top Model?

    OMG! Felicity kicked some serious ass. I miss her so much. I still watch my Felicity DVD’s whenever I have time. I watch them in order so I can see the whole college experience unfold over and over. It’s funny, I will go like months without watching but then when I am like in Felicity withdrawal I will watch an entire season in 2 weeks. Season 1 was still the best, but the whole “Back in time Felicity” episodes were pretty awesome too. I love them cause they injected a lot of humor back into the show. Keri was so funny the first season but she so serious for the next few years for some reason. She picked up Ben’s whispering too. Oh well. I love em all!

    Michael you ROCK for writing such a goofy love letter to the all-time best TV heroine, Felicity Porter! Gotta love her, even if she did distract goofy Noel, who I only thought was the father of my child. P.S. Anyone watch the extras on the Season 4 DVD, in which JJ Abrams said the idea for Alias came about when he and Matt Reeves were writing a Felicity ep? JJ said, “What if Felicity was a spy?” and went off on this crazy tangent and everyone thought he was nuts…and then he wrote Alias, and made Felicity a spy in his first-ever movie! You gotta love that, popwatchers!

    I was not a Keri Rusell Felicity fan, but after I saw her ruthlessly savage another girl, off broadway in neil labute’s FAT PIG, and after Mission Imposible… I WANT MORE KERI, I WANT KERI EVERYWHERE… I WILL WRITE KERI A MOVIE… just don’t put her next to TOM AGAIN… PLEASE.

    That sappy letter was ridiculous. Kerri Russell do whatever you want to do. If that means more grittier stuff go for it. You were smokin’ in M:I3, too bad you you didn’t last longer. And when did you become so hot?

  • nikki

    i, too, have a girl crush on Keri Russell.

  • jon

    I’m just happy Team Cruise didn’t choose Keri for baby brainwashing but instead decided to go with her WB counterpart Katie Holmes instead. I think Keri wouldn’t have gone for it anyway, she wants to be a STAR!

  • chocolatespirit

    I love Felicity! Still completely hooked on all the WE reruns. (Why can’t life be as pretty and hilarious as “Felicity”?) I am glad to see Kerri Russell working again and glad to see she’s kept a low profile and come out strong in such an unexpected role. And it’s cool to see that JJ Abrams is loyal to the actors he works with. Kerri Russell (and Phillip S. Hoffman of course) is one of the ONLY reasons I want to see MI III. It will be fun to see Felicity being a bad ass!

  • Melissa

    Yea Slezaks back!!!

  • Rebecca

    Scott Foley already made his comeback. He is on The Unit on CBS, which is one of the top-rated shows. And guess what? Hes still freakin hot.

  • ChrisLao

    Just the mere mention of the Felicity regulars (Javier, Meghan, etc) made me want to cry. “Felicity” was just an awesome TV show… I’m babbling like a fan…and you know what, I so am! Thanks for bringing back into conciousness what I consider to be one of TV’s all time best shows. I’m in love with Keri Russell too :)

  • Frank

    Well I live in the west village and I usually see Keri here and there. She always looks very cute and fab! plus she goes to my gym as well. So I love the fact that she’s still out there and can’t wait to see her at the movies again…. loved Felicity all episodes all seasons. Actually last time I ran into her at the Deli… I totally didn’t want to be cheesy but I ended up telling her how much I loved her SHOW! hahahaha Love Keri Russell
