TVLine Items: Yvonne Strahovski in Amazon Pilot, New Arrow Foe and More

Yvonne Strahovski Edge

Yvonne Strahovski has played the killer before, but she’ll soon be on the other side of a murder investigation.

The Dexter alumna has been cast in Amazon’s drama pilot Edge, opposite Max Martini (The Unit) and Ryan Kwanten (True Blood).

Based on the books by George G. Gilman, the potential series centers on Martini’s Josiah Hedges (aka Edge), who is out for vengeance after his younger brother is killed. Per our sister site Variety, Strahovski will play Beth, a mysterious Pinkerton detective and newcomer to the town of Seward, Kan., where the series is set.

Strahovski — whose TV credits also include Chuck and 24: Live Another Day — currently appears on ABC’s summer drama The Astronaut Wives Club.
