'X-Men's Famke Janssen Joins 'How to Get Away With Murder'

"X-Men" franchise veteran Famke Janssen will appear in a multi-episode arc of the ABC legal thriller "How to Get Away With Murder."

Although details of her role haven't been announced, TVLine suggests she'll play a revered defense attorney who takes her work seriously. That sounds like the perfect rival for Viola Davis' Annalise.

Janssen, who returned to her franchise role as Jean Grey for a cameo in last year's "X-Men: Days of Future Past," stars in the Netflix series "Hemlock Grove."

She'll make her "How to Get Away With Murder" debut in Sept. 24 in the Season 2 premiere.
