MY FAVORITE TV SIDEKICKS

The actress, 35, salutes her fellow second bananas.

1 LARRY DALLAS, THREE'S COMPANY

Larry (Richard Kline) is an awesome sidekick because he's always around! I like how he was vulnerable but considered himself to be a real swinging ladies' guy. It's that kind of reliable behavior that's lovable. And you can see his insecurities so clearly, it makes you love him even more.

2 KAREN WALKER, WILL & GRACE

Karen (Megan Mullally) is so naughty and irreverent! She brings so much levity to Grace and Will's over-the-top emotions. Another good part about being a sidekick is sometimes the main character needs a break, and the sidekick comes in and takes the load off their shoulders. That's what Karen is so great at.

3 RHODA MORGENSTERN, THE MARY TYLER MOORE SHOW

The Mary Tyler Moore Show is my favorite show ever. I love how different Rhoda (Valerie Harper) and Mary are. At first they were contentious, but so often, those are the kinds of people who end up bringing out the best in you. That's the case with Rhoda.

4 CHRISTOPHER MOLTISANTI, THE SOPRANOS

He (Michael Imperioli) was the most loyal of all the soldiers in Tony Soprano's army. He would do anything Tony asked. That's a great sidekick. And I loved how he was so funny without knowing it or trying to be.
