Leverage's Beth Riesgraf

Perhaps the coolest element of TNT's Leverage — which airs Tuesdays at 10 pm/ET, and has just been picked up for a second season — is its colorful cast of characters, each of whom is more assured of their snatching skills than the next. That quality is no better personified than by Beth Riesgraf's Parker, an upper-echelon cat burglar who loves climbing walls and sticking her claws into other people's things. Riesgraf gave a look at what's ahead for her sexy and sassy sneak.
