Image Credit: Sam Jones/Fox; Valerie Macon/Getty ImagesWould I lie to you? Probably. But I’m telling you the truth when I say that Lie to Me has just cast Shoshannah Stern. The Jericho alum will recur during the show’s upcoming third season as a grad student hired to help Dr. Lightman (Tim Roth) write his new book.

Though some of the psychologist’s colleagues fret that the newbie’s disability will make her job all but impossible—like the actress, the character is deaf—Lightman takes a shine to her.

Thoughts? Be honest, you think Stern is a pretty fantastic addition, don’t you? Hit the comments!
