It just got a little more crowded under the dome.

EW has learned that CSI: NY alum Eddie Cahill has just joined season 2 of CBS’s summer drama Under the Dome as a series regular. Cahill will play a character named Sam, a former EMT and brother-in-law to notoriously difficult Big Jim (Dean Norris). Per a casting description, the character will also form a “deep connection” with Rachelle Lefevre’s Julia.

The show has also added Karla Crome, a former series regular on British science fiction dramedy Misfits. She will play Rebecca, a smart and tough school teacher who is also a former army brat. This is Crome’s first big role stateside.

Under the Dome, based on the Stephen King novel, returns for its second season June 30.

Chester’s Mill residents suddenly find themselves cut off from the rest of the world by a mysterious, impenetrable barrier, which surrounds the town in this Stephen King adaptation.
