For some reason, no one has given Emmanuelle Vaugier her own TV series yet, though she did flirted with one on the Sci-Fi Channel a few years back that never went anywhere. Fortunately for fans of the “House of the Dead 2” star, plenty of TV producers have cast her as a semi-regular on plenty of TV shows, including “CSI: New York”, “Human Target”, and now, “Covert Affairs”.
In USA Network’s breezy new spy show “Covert Affairs”, Vaugier will play a character described as a “fearless journalist/blogger”, which could basically be anything. She’ll be starring opposite Piper Perabo, playing a CIA agent trainee who gets promoted to the big time when the CIA brass wants to use her to capture her ex-boyfriend. Also in the cast: former “Heroes” star Sendhil Ramamurthy, and “Jake 2.0.” himself, Christopher Gorham.
The show, currently shooting in Toronto, is set to debut on the basic cable network on July 13, 2010.
