Milla Jovovich Inducted Into Basic Cable Hall of Fame

CINCINNATI—Screen star Milla Jovovich, famed for her work in Resident Evil, Resident Evil: Apocalypse, and The Fifth Element, was inducted to the Basic Cable Hall of Fame in a semi-lavish ceremony held in the organization's Swayze Auditorium Friday. Honored for her countless appearances on TBS, TNT, USA, and other networks, Jovovich was introduced by basic-cable legend Brian Dennehy, who called her "one of America's most familiar thespians." Said Jovovich, "When I appeared in Luc Besson's artistically ambitious Joan Of Arc alongside Dustin Hoffman so many years ago, I never imagined I'd wind up here." Her latest work, Resident Evil: Extinction, is expected to reach basic cable later this year. "Thank you for this distinction, and thank you for not insisting that I wear a miniskirt for this event," Jovovich added. The actress joins such basic-cable luminaries as Renegade's Lorenzo Lamas and Sliders' Jerry O'Connell in accepting the industry's 17th-highest honor.
