Google is currently working with a handful of developers to bring a few Android apps to Chrome OS--but why wait for the pokey process to bear fruit? You can run any Android app on your Chromebook today. Chat on Skype, play Minecraft Pocket Edition, or read the latest news in Flipboard; it's all possible, with a little help from Linux.
Check out /r/chromeapks on Reddit for more discussion of this tool, including whether specific apps work! We'll hopefully see the tool continue to improve, bringing more software to Chrome OS — though you have to wonder what this means for the future of Chrome and its offline "Chrome apps."
