Ivan Sergei Body of ProofThis Just In: Jeri Ryan‘s love life on Body of Proof has a pulse!

The ABC procedural has tapped Ivan Sergei (Jack & Jill, Crossing Jordan) to guest star in Season 3 as a mysterious Ukrainian (named, coincidentally, Sergei) who catches the eye of Ryan’s Kate at a political event.

Unfortunately, they quickly get drawn into the murder of a young Russian girl — a mood killer if ever there was one.
