Tradecraft: Thor's Jamie Alexander Signs Up For Covert Affairs
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jamie Alexander, who made quite a memorable impression as the goddess Sif in Thor, will join USA's Covert Affairs for at least three episodes this season. The trade reports that Alexander will play a CIA techie named Reva Kline, "an attractive brunette in her thirties who was the youngest person to ever land a project in the CIA's Directorate of Science & Technology." Annie Walker (Piper Perabo) finds it a challenge to work with Reva thanks to the young techie's inability to socialize with others.
In other Covert Affairs casting news, ubiquitous movie baddie Peter Stormare (Fargo, Armageddon, The Tuxedo) has landed a guest spot in one of Alexander's episodes as Belarusian security agent Max Kupala. His character will abduct Annie and Reva on the Poland-Belarus border in hopes of ransoming the American agents. Stormare recently guest starred on an episode of Hawaii Five-0.
Covert Affairs returns for a second season tonight at 10PM on USA.
