Colony adds Gilmore Girls star in season 2
Netflix won’t be the only place to satiate your Gilmore Girls hunger.
USA’s Colony has tapped Gilmore Girls alum Keiko Agena for a recurring role in season 2, EW has learned. Also added to the cast: William Russ (Girl Meets World) and Paolo Andino (The Last Ship).
Agena, best known for her role as Rory Gilmore’s best friend Lane Kim, will play Betsy, a co-worker of Will Bowman (Josh Holloway) and Jennifer (Kathleen Rose Perkins) at Homeland Security. She is the one friendly face they can rely on, but as the politics of the Occupation take a dark turn, Betsy finds herself placed in a compromising position.
Russ will play Hennessey, a seen-it-all ex-spy who always had more brains than brawn and now serves as a lateral bridge between the many Resistance cells. This privileged and dangerous position allows Hennessey to help Broussard (Tory Kittles) unravel one of the big mysteries surrounding the Los Angeles bloc’s purpose.
Andino will play Howard, a Redhat whose loyalties will be tested when he meets Broussard.
The trio join previously announced guest stars Tony Plana and Jessica Parker Kennedy. Scoop on that here.
Colony will return Thursday, Jan. 12 at 10 p.m. ET on USA. Watch a new trailer here.
