Actress Minka Kelly

Minka Kelly is another young actress catching attention these days, and not just because of her quirky first name. :-)

Having played cheerleader Lyla Garrity in the NBC high school football drama "Friday Night Lights," she's had a recurring role in "Parenthood" as a children's developmental counselor. Don't get used to seeing more of her on that show; as of this writing, she's slated to appear in a new version of the seventies series "Charlie's Angels" on ABC.

Fun Fact 1: She's romantically linked to New York Yankees baseball player Derek Jeter.

Fun Fact 2: Her father, Rick Dufay (Kelly is her mother's name), was the rhythm guitarist in Aerosmith from 1980 to 1984, replaced by the same guy he replaced (Brad Whitford) four years earlier.
