Minka Kelly, 'Charlie's Angels'

Where you've seen her: She played cheerleader Lyla Garrity in "Friday Night Lights" and the object of her crazy cohabitant's affection in "The Roommate" thriller. She also had a few appearances on NBC's "Parenthood." Character on this show: Kelly will play Eve, a Miami car thief-turned-detective in the reboot of the 1970s crime-fighting show. Character similarities: She's still a token pretty girl but she'll toughen up from her previous roles in order to nab the bad guys with costars Rachael Taylor ("Grey's Anatomy"), Annie Ilonzeh ("General Hospital") and Ramon Rodriguez ("The Wire"). Not to worry, Drew Barrymore, who starred in the big-screen adaptations of "Charlie's Angels," will serve as executive producer on the show and will be on hand to share some butt-kicking tips.
