How creepy was Anne Dudek (aka Amber aka Cutthroat Bitch) in that last episode of House? For a couple of episodes, as she showed up as a figment of House’s imagination, it was a little disturbing, but man, it got really creepy real fast when House realized that Dudek’s character was one figment of his imagination that he can’t get rid of. Like, probably never. Who knows if Amber will be back on House next year, but Dudek will definitely be on another show as a regular: the USA Network’s currently casting Covert Affairs.
THR says Dudek will play the sister of lead Piper Perabo’s character. On the show, Perabo will play a highly-trained CIA agent named Annie Walker, who is promoted so the brass at the agency can use her to track down her old boyfriend. Previously, Christopher Gorham of Jake 2.0 fame was cast as the male lead opposite Perabo.
Covert Affairs is from Matt Corman and Chris Ord, and will be another USA Network original series following Burn Notice, Royal Pains, and In Plain Sight, all hits for the cable net.
