Tricia Helfer Joins "Powers" as FBI Special Agent Lange

Sony's Playstation Network continues to ramp up the cast of "Powers," announcing today that former "BSG" star Tricia Helfer will join the super-powered cop show show for its second season.

Helfer will bring FBI Special Agent Lange to life on the series. In the comic, by Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming, Lange shares a past -- both professional and romantic -- with Detective Walker, played on the series by Sharlto Copley. According to the release announcing Helfer's casting, "Lange walks a fine line between the Powers world and the government, and can be both ally and enemy when it suits her agenda."

Helfer joins fellow "Powers" newcomers Enrico Colantoni and Michael Madsen as the series continues production on its sophomore season.

Helfer, best known as "Battlestar Galactica's" undercover Cylon Number Six, most recently appeared as The Queen on TNT's "Falling Skies" and Viondra Denniger on Syfy's "Ascension" miniseries.

"Powers" returns in 2016 on the Playstation Network.
