Her quick wit and attractive features meant she was ideal on either side of the camera, and Silverman soon broke into feature films with appearances in "Bulworth" (1998), "There's Something About Mary" (1998) and "The Bachelor" (1999).

Not forgetting her comedic roots on television, Silverman was back on TV in the zany comedy series "Greg the Bunny" (2002) and she provided one of the featured voices on "Crank Yankers" (2002).
