For the last 7 years she starred in the NBC drama "The West Wing" and recently joined the cast of Showtime's "The L Word." Matlin also appeared in Billy Joel's music video "We Didn't Start the Fire," and performed with Joel on the PBS series, "Sesame Street."

Super Bowl XL was watched by more than 141 million viewers in the U.S. last year. It is annually the nation's highest-rated TV program and the most-watched single-day sporting event. The game will be broadcast to a potential worldwide audience of 1 billion in more than 230 countries and territories.
