Tradecraft: Gorham Sets Affairs

The Hollywood Reporter reports that Harper's Island star Christopher Gorham will play the male lead opposite Piper Parabo in USA's newest spy series, Covert Affairs. The trade summarizes what we've heard before about the series adding a few new snippets about Gorham's role: "Written by Matt Corman and Chris Ord, Affairs centers on Annie Walker (Perabo), a multilingual CIA trainee who joins the Agency still reeling over a mysterious ex-boyfriend who appears to be of particular interest to her bosses. Gorham will play Auggie Anderson, a CIA military intelligence/special-ops agent blinded years ago on an assignment who is helping Walker navigate her new job." USA is hoping another spy series will replicate the success the network has enjoyed with Burn Notice. Gorham, who played a recurring role on Ugly Betty, most recently starred on CBS's summer slasher series Harper's Island. Speaking of Harper's Island and going way off topic here, did anyone else watch that? It was cheesy but pretty fun for most of the journey, however I was hugely let down by the finale after investing thirteen weeks in the series. Am I alone?
