Piper Perabo to Star in Spy Series on USA

The USA Network has nabbed Piper Perabo to play the broken-hearted CIA agent at the center of its upcoming spy thriller series. Titled Covert Affairs, the series will follow "Annie Walker (Perabo), a CIA trainee who speaks six languages and excels at any endeavor she undertakes. Walker joins the CIA while still reeling over a mysterious ex-boyfriend who appears to be of particular interest to her new bosses. She vows never to let herself be hurt again, but that proves to be a tall order." Still to be cast is Auggie Anderson, "a blind tech expert who assists Walker in her assignments."

Not an exceptionally original concept for a show, but I'm excited to see Perabo on a TV series. She may have had some movie roles here and there since 2000, but in my heart she'll probably always be Violet Sanford from the lovably cheesy Coyote Ugly. It'll be interesting to see what she can do on a weekly spy show.

Doscovered Piper Parabo 3 weeks ago. A Coyote Ugly bar opened here in OKC. Went on a whim. The girls and atmosphere were awesome. Picked up a Coyote DVD the next day. Then Lost and Delirious. Then Imagine Me and You. Ms. Parabo has RANGE! The naive and girly-girl-next-door Violet (Jersey) in the outrageously earthy Coyote. The extremely troubled, almost psychotic Pauline (P) in the deeply dark Lost. And finally, the delicately feminine but sexually-conflicted Rachel (Rach) in the beautifully presented Imagine. All ignored, underrated, or snubbed. Perhaps by theme, content, or ratings, but certainly not by Piper's performances. If this series is properly presented and publicly exposed, Ms. Parabo will move into the ethereal heights of her awesome namesake, Piper Laurie.

This is a very similiar character to Fringe's 'Anna.'
