MerrinDungey_30090210 has enlisted an Alias vet for an upcoming mission installment.

Merrin Dungey — who played super spy Sydney Bristow’s ill-fated best friend-turned-body-snatched baddie on the cult hit — will guest-star in a February episode of the CW soap, TVLine has learned exclusively.

    • Either that or they’ll have him do his therapy sessions shirtless. I swear they have him and Naomi naked in every episode.

      • the only person who should be shirtless on that show is Trevor Donovan, but he had enough sense to get off that disastrous shos

      • Ugh and no one wants to see Naomi naked. Unless you’re into 12 year old boys.

  • This show has become so bad that even though I like her, I may miss her ep just because I will be watching something else (anything else). Loved her in King of Queens, even when she “left” Deacon et al for Lori Laughlin-led Summerland where her character there was kind of boring, but then again all the characters on Summerland were boring.

    • Summerland may have been boring and had a really lame title but I’ll always remember it for introducing me to Ryan Kwanten on mute.

  • She would have been a lot better than Audra in Private Practice. Also a lot more believable that she would end up with Taye Diggs.

  • Little clue for 90210 producers: Seeing “Naomi” in any stage of undress is repulsive.

  • She was most recently on Hollywood Heights.
