Nia Vardalos The Catch Cast

Nia Vardalos Joins ABC's The Catch

The Catch has caught itself a movie star. My Big Fat Greek Wedding creator/star Nia Vardalos is joining the ABC Shondaland drama in a recurring capacity, TVLine has confirmed.

Our sister site Deadline first reported that Vardalos will play a counterfeiter named Leah Wells who is neurotic but also not to be messed with.

Vardalos, who is currently promoting the recently released sequel to her 2002 romantic comedy, played a liver-transplant recipient in a 2012 episode of Grey’s Anatomy. Her other notable TV work includes Marry Me, Jane the Virgin, Law & Order: SVU and My Big Fat Greek Life, the one-season CBS sitcom based on her film.
