The actress—who recently picked up Most Egregious Emmy Snub honors for her superb Bad work—will guest-star on the Fox drama this fall, sources confirm to me exclusively.

Gunn will play Internal Affairs detective Jenkins, an ambitious, politically savvy police officer on the fast track to the top. She realizes Lightman is someone who must be handled with caution as she tries to bring down Detective Wallowski.

She’ll appear in this season’s third episode, which is slated to air on Nov. 24. (Lie to Me‘s third season premieres on Nov. 10.)
