Actress Margo Harshman is about to step into the spotlight. Today’s "Crush" has joined the recurring cast of the mega popular CBS sitcom ‘The Big Bang Theory.’

The stunning, sleepy-eyed actress will reportedly play a new love interest for nerdy Leonard (Johnny Galecki), giving more (false) hope to short geeks who long to be paired up with tall, sexy, crush-worthy girlfriends.

The 26-year-old actress is best known for her role on the Disney Channel sitcom ‘Even Stevens’ and for guest spots on ‘Modern Family’ and ‘Boston Legal’ as well as a regular role on the short-lived show ‘Bent.’

While her ‘TBBT’ role will give her more exposure, Harshman also risks alienating millions of TV viewers who long to see Leonard paired up with his next door neighbor Penny, played by the equally crush worthy Kaley Cuoco.

The nerd love triangle kicks off when ‘TBBT’ returns for its sixth season on September 27.
