We automotive journalists are a merry bunch. Friendly people for the most part, happy to do our jobs, though not necessarily the best-looking in any profession. But the latest addition to our ranks helps curve the grade, so to speak, by some measure.

You may recognize Lake Bell from No Strings Attached or from the Adult Swim comedy Childrens Hospital. Her latest movie, A Good Old Fashioned Orgy, just hit theaters, she's set to appear in the upcoming second season of HBO's How to Make It in America and just finished filming Black Rock. She's even directed her own short film called Worst Enemy that debuted at Sundance this year. And now she can add one more line to her résumé as she continues to write the automotive column for The Hollywood Reporter.

She credits her father – who just happens to own a couple of race tracks – with her love for cars, which have already helped her review cars like the Maserati GranTurismo, Porsche Panamera 4S, Jaguar XKR and Cadillac CTS-V Coupe. We think The Car Show may have just found their replacement for John Salley.
