Exclusive: 24's Annie Wersching Heads to Dallas

Annie Wersching, who is perhaps best known as 24‘s plucky FBI agent Renee Walker, next is setting her sights on TNT’s Dallas.

TVLine has learned exclusively that the actress will recur during Season 2 of the hit cable drama as an ambitious and sexy transportation commissioner. Sources tell me that Wersching’s character, though married, just might mix it up with John Ross and/or Christopher. Whee doggie!

Other announced additions for Dallas‘ sophomore run, which premieres Jan. 28, 2013, include Walking Dead alum Emma Bell (as a series regular) and Emmy winner Judith Light, while Ted Shackelford and Joan Van Ark will reprise their Knots Landing roles of Gary and Valene Ewing.

Since wrapping her run on 24, Wersching has guested on such series as NCIS, Rizzoli & Isles and Hawaii Five-0. She also can be seen in the first two episodes of Body of Proof Season 3 (premiering at midseason on ABC).
