Famke Janssen is going from battling the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants to The Keating Five. E! News has confirmed the X-Men star has joined the cast of How to Get Away With Murder, something her X-Men character, Jean Grey, knows a thing or two about if you watched X-Men: The Last Stand.

Details on her character are being kept under wraps, but TVLine reports she'll play a revered defense attorney. Something tells us she'll be squaring off against Viola Davis' Annalise Keating at some point. Every guest star needs to go up against Annalise at some point. Look for Janssen to first pop up in the season two premiere.

Janssen's other TV rolls include Netflix's Hemlock Grove, Nip/Tuck and Ally McBeal. On the big screen she's had roles in Taken, Goldeneye and of course the X-Men series of movies.

Season one of HTGAWM ended with Lila's murderer revealed…and another murder committed. Viewers will find out who killed Rebecca (Katie Findlay)…but will the murderer get away with it? And who did she text? We need answers.

How To Get Away With Murder stars Davis, Matt McGorry, Billy Brown, Charlie Weber, Aja Naomi King, Liza Weil, Alfred Enoch, Karla Souza and Jack Falahee.

How to Get Away With Murder returns Thursday Sept. 24 at 10 p.m. on ABC.
