at . Comments

Jennifer Westfeldt is coming to 24.

The actress - who has been dating Mad Men star Jon Hamm for years and enjoyed an extended guest-starring stint on Grey's Anatomy last season - recently spoke on her role on the eighth season of the Fox drama.

"I'm a journalist with some ties to the president of the Islamic Republic, who is played by Anil Kapoor, who was in Slumdog Millionaire," she said.

Will the character, Meredith Reed, stick around all season? Don't count on it: Westfeldt begins her role in an off-Broadway play this week.

Yesterday, it was announced that T.J. Ramini would also appear on season eight of 24.
