In addition to talent, much of success in Hollywood depends on timing and being seen by the right people. Kerry Bishé had very good luck being seen by the producers of "Scrubs," who cast her in the final season of the sitcom. The good luck continued with a role in Ben Affleck's political thriller "Argo," followed by a starring role on the cable series "Halt and Catch Fire."

In 2012, Bishé starred as one of the American hostages in Ben Affleck's Oscar-winning period piece "Argo." Bishé co-starred in the TV series "Halt and Catch Fire" (AMC, 2014- ) on which she played an early 1980s computer engineer whose husband downplays her significant role in the development of their flagship computer. Ironically, her husband in "Halt and Catch Fire" was played by Scoot McNairy, who had also played her husband in "Argo."
