Natalie Zea will spend a bit of her Justified hiatus appearing in two episodes of Showtime’s Californication, our sister site Deadline reports. And as with most every woman cast on the series, Zea’s character will be a love (lust?) interest for Hank, starting with the as-yet-unscheduled Season 5 premiere.
Now, my fellow Justified fans, before you start screamin’ all over the holler, know this: In a bit of doubly good news for Zea, the actress has also extended her stay on the acclaimed FX drama. Originally contracted for just the first two seasons, Zea is now locked in for Season 3, meaning that maybe we’ll get to see Raylan become a dad — and a most bad-ass one at that.
An alum of Dirty Sexy Money, Zea recently guested on TNT’s Franklin & Bash and can be seen this fall in the series premiere of CBS’ Person of Interest (airing Thursdays at 9/8c).
