A day after we broke the news that Susan Lucci and Kelli Williams were enlisting for multi-episode arcs, sources confirm that ER‘s Kellie Martin, Rescue Me‘s Robert John Burke and Boston Legal‘s Ryan Michelle Bathe are also joining the Lifetime drama in recurring roles.
Martin will play Nicole, a member of the military police, while Bathe — who in real life is married to Army Wives doc Sterling K. Brown — will portray the head of the Youth Center. Lastly, Burke (a.k.a. Gossip Girl‘s Bart Bass) will appear in seven episodes as an ultra-competitive general and the husband of Williams’ character, Jackie.
Army Wives‘ sixth season is slated to premiere in the spring.
