Keen-eyed film watchers and dog lovers noticed something important at the movies this year:

The dog in the weirdly-underrated "Game Night" is the same dog in the totally excellent "Widows" and in the controversial Netflix show "Insatiable."

About 30 seconds of internet sleuthing reveals this animal to be a West Highland Terrier named "Olivia," a "walking stuffed animal" and such a good girl repped by Animal Casting Atlanta.

No word yet on her next move, but you know what they say: Always book your next project before the last one comes out.
