Sexy actress Aisha Tyler is frustrated that she only gets "geeky" roles, and is desperate to break out of the mould.

CSI: CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATION star Tyler complains that playing brainy characters, such as ROSS' paleontologist girlfriend CHARLIE in Friends, means that she doesn't get much chance to display one of her favourite skills: shooting.

She laughs, "I'm always cast as an uptight geek.

"I never get to fire any guns, which is something I've been doing for years at a firing range in Los Angeles to help me wind down.

"The first day I arrived on the set of 24, I begged the producers to let me shoot someone on the show."
