'Alias' Puts Trust in Getty

(Posted August 16, 2005 by Leah Yoakum)

LOS ANGELES ( The changes at ABC's "Alias" keep on coming. Former "Pasadena" star Balthazar Getty is joining the show, becoming the series' third new cast member in a month.

Getty will play Thomas Grace, a new agent on the APO team who brings experience with deep-cover missions for other parts of the CIA.

"Alias" has a history of periodically blowing up its premise -- and did so again at the end of last season -- and adding and subtracting characters. But the three additions since late July -- Rachel Nichols ("The Inside") and French actress Elodie Bouchez are the others -- represent an unusual concentration of new blood.

It may be necessary, though, to drive the show's plot after the upheaval that closed last season, when Vaughn (Michael Vartan) revealed to Sydney (Jennifer Garner) that he wasn't who he claimed to be, just before a car crash.

Bouchez will play Renee Rienne, an international criminal who has secretly been aiding Vaughn for several years. Nichols is set to play a CIA analyst who works with Sydney, who's now pregnant (as Garner is in real life).

In addition to the short-lived FOX drama "Pasadena," Getty has appeared in TNT's "Into the West" and the USA Network miniseries "Traffic." His movie credits include "Ladder 49," "Shadow Hours" and "Lost Highway."
