Why Kelly Peterson from Blue Bloods looks so familiar


Cheers and Frasier

Bebe Neuwirth, who plays Kelly Peterson on “Blue Bloods,” is a veteran of the screen and stage and has popped up in a number of memorable productions throughout the years. In the '80s and '90s, she became known for playing the uptight, perpetually stoic, and fiercely intelligent Dr. Lilith Sternin in the "Cheers" universe.


1995’s “Jumanji” may be best remembered for Robin Williams’ performance as Alan Parrish, who was trapped in the game for 26 years. However, the character that ended up being the butt of the film's jokes was Aunt Nora Sheppard, who was played convincingly by Neuwirth.


In 2002 Neuwirth starred in the romantic comedy “Tadpole,” which is about a precocious teenage boy who is uninterested in girls his own age, and only has eyes for older women. “Tadpole’s” sexual politics have not aged well, but Neuwirth’s performance as the unhinged Diane Lodder received favorable reviews and won her numerous awards.

Law and Order: Trial By Jury

If you remember "Law & Order: Trial By Jury," you will remember Bebe Neuwirth, because she was one of the stars of the show. She portrayed Tracey Kibre, the homicide bureau chief for Manhattan's district attorney, but unfortunately the show was canceled after a single season of 13 episodes.

Madam Secretary

From 2014 to 2017, Neuwirth played Nadine Tolliver on the CBS political drama "Madam Secretary." "Madam Secretary" ran for six seasons, of which Bebe Neuwirth took part in three, leaving midway through Season 4.
