The Hollywood Reporter announced yesterday that Victoria Secret’s model Marissa Miller the latest to join the model-turned-actress ranks. She has already appeared in a few sitcoms (“How I Met Your Mother,” “Gary Unmarried”), but she will make her feature debut in Ryan Reynolds’ R.I.P.D.. Reynolds will play a dead cop in the Rest in Peace Department, tasked with finding his murderer. Jeff Bridges will play his partner, and the trick here is that Miller will be played Bridges human avatar, “the form humans see when Bridges’ character is in his earthly form.”


At any rate, the casting news does give us the opportunity to engage in some very arduous research in order to come up with this list of the 13 Most Successful Victoria’s Models Turned Actresses.
