Mekhi Phifer is being let go from Lie to Me.

But the show has found a gorgeous guest star to take our mind off this loss, at least for one episode: Tricia Helfer will appear on an installment of the Fox drama next season.

The beauty will portray Naomi, a love interest for Lightman who seeks protection from the doctor against her violent ex-boyfriend.

Forever best known for her role on Battlestar Galactica, Helfer appears on TNT's Dark Blue. She also recently guest-starred on Burn Notice and Human Target.

Lie to Me returns for a third season on November 10. Other big-name guest stars will include Anna Gunn and Shoshannah Stern.
