You may not recognize the name, but that could all change soon enough. Krysten Ritter is building an impressive television resume that probably includes at least one character you recognize, and her latest venture is the aptly-named ABC show “Don’t Trust The B– In Apartment 23”, which premieres tonight.

Ritter is a rare find; she describes herself as “not conventionally pretty”, yet sports the glossy black hair and ivory skin of a pin-up model. In fact, her bangs recall the likes of Bettie Page, perhaps the most famous pin-up of them all. Plus–rather importantly–the girl is funny. Her looks have gotten her typecast as the goth/druggie in several roles, but Ritter says this latest one has been fun to play because she gets to explore other sides of her talent.

The character, Chloe, is described by Ritter as the product of Holly Golightly and the devil; she scams and schemes her way through life, making enough enemies along the way to afford the show’s title. “Dawson’s Creek” alum James Van Der Beek co-stars, playing himself and Chloe’s best friend.

In perhaps one of her best roles, Ritter played addict Jane Margolis on AMC’s “Breaking Bad”, the girl who steals Jesse Pinkman’s heart and then goes for his bag of meth-produced cash. In a charming commercial for “Don’t Trust The B–In Apartment 23” in which various Chloe-victims talk about the vicious acts she committed against them, Bryan Cranston–who plays lead character Walter White on “Breaking Bad”–makes a cameo (and an inside joke, for you BB fans).

Viewers seem to be eagerly anticipating the show:

    Krysten Ritter is one of the most beautiful women I have ever seen, and I don’t typically even go for brunette’s, ever! Amazingly beautiful in She’s out of my league, not to mention her acting is just fantastic, believable characters. Rented Killing Bono just because of her! Interesting movie, did someone really get into the same room as Bono with a gun. I hope not. I agree with the author here that she may, in fact be, the next big thing! WANT TO SEE MORE OF Krysten Ritter!
