THE PRACTICE star Camryn Manheim relished spoofing thespian Cherry Jones in Scary Movie 3 - because it provided a chance to get her own back on the woman who has beaten her to many great roles.

Manheim spoofs the state trooper Jones played in SIGNS in the new horror comedy after years of missing out on a series of great roles - all thanks to her.

She says, "Cherry's like the grand dame of theatre in New York and when they asked me to spoof her, I was like, 'Anything to take her down. She has taken so many roles from me in the past. Every part I ever wanted - Cherry Jones got it.'"
