111077_D_1017MoniqueCurnenMonique Curnen has landed a major recurring role on Fox’s drama series Lie To Me next season, while Warren Christie is set to co-star opposite David Strathairn in SyFy’s action-adventure 90-minute pilot Alphas, directed by Jack Bender.

On Lie To Me, Curren (The Unusuals) will play the attractive Detective Wallowski, a great cop with a street edge and a fast subversive mind who becomes a sexual interest for Dr. Cal Lightman (Tim Roth), and drives a wedge between him and Dr. Gillian Foster (Kelli Williams).

Alphas follows a team led by Leigh Rosen (Strathairn) that includes ordinary citizens possessing extraordinary and unusual mental skills who take the law into their own hands and uncover what the CIA, FBI and Pentagon have not been able or willing to solve. Christie (Happy Town) will play Christian Hicks, a new recruit on the team with a history of psychological problems, drug abuse and an anti-authoritarian streak whose Alpha skill is hyperkinesis – near-perfect dexterity and hand/eye coordination.
