'Southland' scores Lucy Liu for Season 4
TNT announced the addition of Liu to the series on Monday (Aug. 1) but was rather stingy with details, saying only that her character is "a member of the LAPD." She'll be billed as a special guest star and will appear in multiple episodes.
Liu starred in Lifetime's miniseries "Marry Me" last year, but her stint on "Southland" will be her first work on a weekly series since a run on the second season of ABC's "Dirty Sexy Money" in 2008-09.
You can currently hear Liu as part of the voice cast of "Kung Fu Panda 2." Her other credits include the two "Charlie's Angels" movies, "Kill Bill Vol. 1," ABC's "Cashmere Mafia" and "Ally McBeal," for which she earned an Emmy nomination in 1999.
The fourth season of "Southland" is scheduled to premiere in January.
