Covert Affairs Exclusive: Will Piper Perabo Play Doctor With Ben Lawson?

Covert Affairs is increasing its eye candy quotient as it gears up for its second season.

Aussie hunk Ben Lawson — who starred in the short-lived ABC legal drama The Deep End — is joining the USA Network smash in a recurring role.

Additionally, Rena Sofer (NCIS, Heroes) is coming on board for multiple episodes.

Lawson will play Dr. Scott Weiss, a charming and handsome Doctors Without Borders-type physician Annie (Piper Perabo) meets when she takes her niece, Chloe, to the emergency room. Passionate about his work, Scott understands Annie’s devotion to her job — even if he doesn’t know what that job actually is.

I spy flying sparks!

Sofer, meanwhile, has been cast as Gina, Arthur’s (Peter Gallagher) smart, kind-hearted ex-wife who re-enters his life to offer advice as he deals with the political fallout from Lisa’s (Emmanuelle Vaugier) media assault.

Covert Affairs‘ second season kicks off June 7.
