Tomei has starred on numerous TV series, most recently as Mimi Whitman on FOX’s Empire, and Mrs. O’Conner on Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale, she sticks mostly to films. Tomei’s movie credits on IMDB read like a short novel, and in addition to receiving a second and third Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actress in 2001’s In the Bedroom and 2008’s The Wrestler , Tomei’s successfully cemented her way into the Marvel Universe franchises, as well. She plays May Park in all the new Spiderman, Captain America and Avenger‘s movies.
