Leslie Bibb has upped her status to series regular on NBC's Crossing Jordan. Bibb joined the cast in the recurring role of Detective Tallulah 'Lu' Simmons this year at the start of the drama's fifth season. Her character, who is the department psychologist for the Boston Police Department, has provided therapy and romance for Detective Woody Hoyt (Jerry O'Connell).

Teen filmgoers will recognize Bibb from the 2000 thriller Skulls (also starring Joshua Jackson and Paul Walker), but her most memorable role was as teen princess Brook McQueen on Popular.

Bibb's other television credits include the role of Erin Harkins on NBC's ER and an appearance on Nip/Tuck. She also played the lead FBI agent in the political-drama series "Line of Fire." Bibb's first film role was an NBC tour guide in the Howard Stern biopic Private Parts. Currently, Bibb stars alongside Will Ferrell, Sacha Baron Cohen, and John C. Riley in Columbia Picture's "Untitled Will Ferrell NASCAR Comedy" which will be released on August 4, 2006.
