NBC’s Big Adventure: ‘Pee-wee’ Actress E.G. Daily Auditions For ‘The Voice’
This week, original recipe "Voice" coaches Christina Aguilera and CeeLo Green returned to the panel after a season-long hiatus. But on Tuesday, there was another familiar face on the show: E.G. "Dottie" Daily.
You may not recognize E.G. Daily's name. But if you ever entered a movie theater (or rolled up to a drive-in) in the mid-'80s, or if you've switched on basic cable in the decades since, then you definitely know this lady.
Yes, she was Dottie, the sweet bicycle-shop salesgirl with an unrequited crush on Pee Wee in "Pee-wee Herman's Big Adventure."
She was also Loryn, the sexy mall-rat sidekick in "Valley Girl."
She even starred alongside Diane Lane in the rock flicks "Streets of Fire" and "Ladies & Gentlemen, The Fabulous Stains," and had a song on the "Breakfast Club" soundtrack. Basically, E.G. rocked the silver screen in the '80s. And judging from her "Voice" audition of Faith Hill's "Breathe," she still rocks, albeit now on the small screen. (Lamentably, E.G. didn't sing the "Pee-wee"-popularized "Tequila" or Frank Zappa's "Valley Girl," but her audition was still, to lapse into some Valleyspeak, totally rad.)
