The actress who played Nathan's formerly wheelchair-bound wife Heidi on Heroes is set to join the CBS procedural NCIS, where she'll have a potentially recurring, long-time guest role as hard-nosed, no nonsense lawyer Margaret Allison Hart, reports TV Guide.
Rena Sofer, who was also on 24 as Jack's sister-in-law Marilyn, will visit NCIS starting on the show's first post-holiday episode on January 5, and her character will reportedly have an ex to grind against Gibbs (Mark Harmon). She'll cross paths with the team when her client is suspected in the death of a Navy pilot.
To the old 90s souls out there, Sofer, who turned 40 this month, she played Eve Cleary on the final season of Melrose Place as the woman who eventually married Dr. Burns (Jack Wagner).
And as a little holiday treat to them Tiva fans on NCIS, TV Guide also has a little nugget of joy: Tony (Michael Weatherly) and Ziva (Cote de Pablo) will go on an overseas trip together. No details, though, but I'm guessing it's not anywhere near Somalia.
