TVLine Items: Jewel Staite's Blindspot, Jane Star Is Carmen Sandiego and More

Jewel Staite Blindspot

A little bit of serenity is coming to Blindspot.

The NBC drama has tapped Firefly and Serenity vet Jewel Staite to guest-star in the April 26 episode as “a mysterious power broker whose allegiance is unknown to the team,” executive producer Martin Gero tells TVLine.

The role marks a reunion for Staite and Gero, who worked together on The CW’s Canadian import The L.A. Complex. The actress’ other TV credits include The Killing, Stargate: Atlantis and Wonderfalls, as well as episodes of Castle, Legends of Tomorrow, Supernatural and Warehouse 13.

Gero broke the news of Staite’s casting on Instagram:
