Perrey Reeves is trading in her Entourage for the CIA. The actress best known for playing Melissa Gold—Mrs. Ari—on the hit HBO series is joining USA's Covert Affairs as a recurring guest star, E! News can exclusively reveal.
Reeves will play Caitlyn, the COO at McQuaid Security, the private military company run by Ryan McQuaid (new series regular Nic Bishop). Her character is described as smart, confident and not afraid to speak her mind. It's still a boy's club, but she's worked hard to get where she is today and knows how to command a room.
Reeves is reprising the role of Melissa Gold in the upcoming Entourage movie. Her other credits include Mr. and Mrs. Smith, White Collar, Royal Pains, NCIS and Castle.
The new season of Covert Affairs picks up after Annie (Piper Perabo) faked her death and altered her identity to go deep undercover in Hong Kong to defeat Henry Wilcox (Gregory Itzin). Look for season five, which will premiere in summer 2014, to follow Annie as she grapples with the repercussions of faking her own death—both personally and professionally—as she returns to the world she gave up.
Covert Affairs also star Christopher Gorham, Hill Harper, Kari Matchett and Peter Gallagher.
