A top NFL Draft pick from USC thinks Rashida should be in Maxim's upcoming Hot 100 list.

FOX Sports Mock Draft Position: No. 4 pick to Seattle Seahawks [He went at No. 5 to the New York Jets,
"Taylor Swift has got to be in there. What about the girl from Heroes, Hayden Panettiere? Then, that girl who is the face of Estee Lauder, Hilary Rhoda.
And, as a dark horse, I'd pick—do you watch The Office? Remember Jim's girlfriend after Pam before they got back together? She is in I Love You, Man. Yes, Rashida Jones. Beautiful! I could be the general manager if you guys need help, just call me up!"

Rashida might be in a movie coming out next week; she's not on the IMDb cast list but blogger b-lot-buzz has a film review that mentions her being in it. It says she has a small role as a privileged housewife but there could be different versions of the movie floating around.
