Actress Rashida Jones

Rashida Jones is the daughter of musician Quincy Jones and actress Peggy Lipton, but she's managed to step outside the spotlight of her famous parents by distinguishing herself in two NBC sitcoms.

She played Karen Filippeli on "The Office" and, as of this writing, currently stars as Ann Perkins in "Parks and Recreation."

She's also appeared in several movies, most notably The Social Network.

Fun Fact 1: Bet you didn't know Rashida Jones was a comic book author. She created "Frenemy of the State," a comic book series about a socialite who is recruited by the CIA as a spy.

Fun Fact 2: Model Jolie Jones is her half-sister. (No prizes for guessing their common parent.)
