TNT Casts Rachael Leigh Cook in Perception Pilot

Rachel Leigh Cook

Rachael Leigh Cook has signed on to star opposite Eric McCormack in the new TNT drama pilot PERCEPTION. Deadline reports she will play “sexy and sharp-tongued” FBI agent Kate Rossi, who recruits her former professor Dr. Geoffrey Pierce (McCormack) to work for the FBI using his unique talents to solve complex cases.

Cook may still be best known for her starring role in 1999’s She’s All That, but she more recently had a recurring role on USA’s Psych and she has provided her voice to both Titan Maximum and Robot Chicken.

The script for the Perception pilot was written by Legend of the Seeker producers Kenneth Biller and Mike Sussman while Alan Poul (Six Feet Under, Swingtown) will direct.

Does this sound like a good pairing to you?
