Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Hostel: Part II actress Lauren German has been added to CBS’ Hawaii Five-0 team. (TVLine first reported the story.)

German has a recurring role next season as a “smart, beautiful, ex-Homeland Security Officer hand picked by the governor to join the Five-0 task force, not to just help them fight crime, but keep them in check.”

She joins veteran actor Tom Sizemore and ex-Lostie Terry O’Quinn as new hires for the show’s second season.
