Rachael Leigh Cook to join Eric McCormack for TNT pilot.

Rachael Leigh Cook is joining the FBI. Well, I should say she is joining the television world of the FBI. RLC will be joining Eric McCormack in the TNT pilot PERCEPTION.

She will be playing agent Kate Rossi, a former student of Dr. Geoffrey Pierce (McCormack) that has convinced him to work for the government. Peirce is described as having an intimate knowledge of human behavior and a masterful understanding of the mind  as well as  an odd and imaginative view of the world. He also apparently is goofy as can be and will certainly cause much frustration for the Feds.

I would imagine that Cook will play the straight gal to MrCormick, much like Robin Tunney does for Simon Baker on THE MENTALIST.

I was going to make a crack about Cook and handcuffs, but opted to take the high road.
