The USA Network handed out a series order for a new show back in January and the cast is starting to fill out. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Heroes star Sendhil Ramamurthy has signed onto Covert Affairs as a series regular.
The series centers on Piper Perabo's character Annie Walker, a CIA trainee who is suddenly promoted to field agent after breaking up with her mysterious boyfriend that the agency seems particularly interested in. Ramamurthy will play a fellow CIA agent in the series.
Other cast members include Christopher Gorham, Peter Gallagher, Kari Matchett, Anne Dudek and Eion Bailey. The fate of Heroes still hasn't been decided upon by NBC, but with Ramamurthy signing on as a regular in Covert Affairs, it seems he won't be seen in Heroes if the show is picked up for a fifth season.
