Smallville alum Cassidy Freeman, as we first told you, has shot a recurring role for NBC’s recently debuted The Playboy Club — playing a socialite with a secret — and TVLine has an exclusive first look at how she matches up with the Dean Cain-like Eddie Cibrian.

Starting with the third episode of Playboy Club (Mondays at 10/9c), Freeman will play Frances Dunhill, a well-heeled Chicago beauty who helps Cibrian’s Nick Dalton with his bid for State’s Attorney by giving him a proper lady (versus a corseted bunny) to have on his arm at public events. The arrangement also benefits Frances, who is putting on this show as a way to please her status-minded father. But trust us, she’d rather be with… someone else.

Before hitting The Playboy Club, Freeman can be seen in the CSI: NY season premiere, airing this Friday on CBS. She also is a cast member of the new A&E drama Longmire, which also stars Robert Taylor (The Matrix) and Katee Sackhoff (Battlestar Galactica) and recently received a 10-episode order.
