Exclusive: Family Lays Down the Law(less)

I see a healthy ratings spike in No Ordinary Family‘s future.

Sources confirm to me exclusively that ABC’s freshman sci-fi comedy has tapped the fierce and fraktabulous Lucy Lawless to join the cast for at least five episodes.

According a Family friend, Lawless will play a powerful woman and potential adversary for the Powell clan whose agenda could put the family in danger.

Lawless’ arc will carry the show (which airs Tuesdays at 8 pm) through the end of the season, and hopefully create enough momentum to earn the underrated Family a renewal.

After completing her Family duties Lawless will head to New Zealand to start shooting the second season of Starz’ Spartacus: Blood and Sand.

Thoughts? Are you more likely to pay Family a visit with Lawless on board? Sound off in the comments!
