Celebrity Crush: Rachael Leigh Cook

Hometown: Minneapolis, according to her Wikipedia profile
Best Known For: Rachael's best known for the teen romantic comedy She's All That and for a memorable This is Your Brain on Drugs public service ad (which saw her trash a kitchen).
Other works include the comics-based Josie and the Pussycats movie with probable future celebrity crush profilee Rosario Dawson, the TNT miniseries Into the West and the Emma Roberts-starring Nancy Drew movie, plus lots of indie films and TV guest shots.
(Her character has headed off to Africa in recent episodes, a move that probably is coincidental to the actress announcing in December that she's pregnant. But it means we'll probably see her less often, which is a pity. As much as I adore fellow celebrity crush Maggie Lawson, I thought Rachael had good chemistry with series lead James Roday.)
Beyond her looks, though, her time on Psych has shown her to have good comedic timing -- a necessity for keeping up with James Roday and Dule Hill's antics and fast delivery of lines. (You know they've got to be doing a LOT of takes on that show just to keep straight faces.)
And she campaigned for Barack Obama in 2008, which is always a plus in my book.
