In 1999, she was cast as the recurring character of the Secret Service Agent Gina Toscano on NBC's series The West Wing. Fox also appeared briefly in the movie Memento, which starred Guy Pearce and Carrie-Anne Moss. A dedicated vegetarian, she has worked with PETA to help promote vegetarianism. The admittedly squeamish Fox stars on the popular American crime drama television series CSI: Crime Scene Investigation as the troubled investigator Sara Sidle (who is a vegetarian too). Fox resides in Los Angeles. Fox is the co-founder of Honeypot Productions, an independent avant-garde theatre company in Los Angeles.
The theater company has produced five original productions and she has starred in four, written three, and directed one of them. Friend and HoneyPot co-founder Heather Reid wrote Dear Bernard, which premiered in L.A. in the fall of 2004, and was scheduled to premiere in London in July of 2005, however plans fell through; Fox is one of the producers. Fox is also a musician: she plays guitar (badly, she says) and recently purchased a drum kit. She also sings and writes songs, most notably the song "Lullabye" for the movie Traveling Companion, as well as the song "Satellite" which she published on her official web site. She and CSI co-star George Eads received some bad publicity in 2004 when they were fired, allegedly over contract disputes.
Eads was reported to be hours late for work on the first day of filming for the fifth season, and Fox had allegedly failed to submit a letter to CBS confirming that she would be on time for shooting. The disputes were resolved in just over a week, and the two were rehired by CBS; however, neither actor's salary (reportedly US$100,000 per episode) was raised like the rest of their co-workers. It was also reported that of the two, Fox was approached first to resume her contract with CSI - but she refused until Eads was rehired as well. In 2006, fan outrage ensued when it was suggested that Jorja had received breast enlargement surgery, following a TV Guide photoshoot to promote season 7 of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation. Any controversy ended during the season 7 premiere 'Built To Kill: Part 1.' Jorja appeared as her normal flat chested, pre-pubescent self. Fans were relieved that their more masculine Jorja was on their screen, rather than the feminine one seen on TV Guide. It was later revealed to be nothing more than padding enhanced by Photoshop, as the actress herself went on record to deny the claims, going as far as to detail the number of bruises she'd gathered from toppling over.
In her own words, she "just wasn't used to being top-heavy".
