Rebecca Creskoff has landed a key role on the upcoming season of Covert Affairs.

Rebecca Creskoff on Hung

TV Guide reports that the actress - most recently seen as Lenore on Hung - will debut on the season three premiere as Lena Smith, a veteran CIA operative who will serve as a new mentor for Piper Perabo's Annie.

Smith will oversee her own division within the agency and act as the antithesis to Joan, mentoring Annie with a more laid back, friendly approach. But will there be more to this character than meets the eye?

USA has not set a return date yet for Covert Affairs, but look for new episodes this summer.

UPDATE: Former 24 star Sarah Clarke has taken over in this role, as Creskoff has dropped out due to a scheduling conflict.
