Piper Perabo


The movie star is taking a lead role as a CIA rookie who excels at any endeavor she undertakes.

Piper Perabo is crossing the bridge to TV world by snapping up a lead role in USA Network's new spy thriller. Titled "Covert Affairs", the original series by the cable network will put Perabo in the position as a CIA trainee named Annie Walker.

In taking the role, the "Coyote Ugly" actress has to learn to speak 6 languages because her character has the ability to do so. Besides, Annie is a character that excels at anything she does. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Walker joins the CIA while still reeling over a mysterious ex-boyfriend who appears to be of particular interest to her new bosses. She vows never to let herself be hurt again, but that proves to be a tall order.

The project is not yet given a green light but the pilot order is expected to be given in a couple of weeks. While the execs have found their Annie, they are still looking for an actor to fill in the role a blind tech expert named Auggie Anderson who will be Annie's partner at work.
