We’re not sure what’s wrong with Hollywood. If it was up to us, actress Amanda Righetti would be on TV, in movies and starring in commercials much more frequently than she is now. For the time being, she’ll have to settle for being our Crush of the Day.

You may best know Amanda Righetti for her role as ‘Grace Van Pelt’ on ‘The Mentalist.’ On the CBS show, Righetti’s character often sets up a ‘Psychiatric Help’ booth in a meadow and Charlie Brown, played by Australian actor Simon Baker, visits Righetti for advice on girls and… Oops. Wrong Van Pelt.

Anyway, after starting her film career in production behind the camera, Amanda Righetti was discovered by savvy casting directors, who saw how hot she is realized that she can act. Righetti has since starred in TV shows like ‘The O.C.,’ ‘North Shore,’ ‘Reunion,’ ‘CSI’ and HBO’s ‘Entourage.’ Her movie credits include ‘Captain America: The First Avenger’ and ‘Friday the 13th.’

While we wait for ‘The Mentalist’ to begin its fifth season this fall, we can only hope that more casting directors and producers realize that it’s time for more Amanda Righetti.
