EXCLUSIVE: Alicia Witt and Edi Gathegi (The Twilight Saga, X-Men: First Class) have been cast in major recurring roles on the upcoming fifth season of FX/Sony TV’s drama series Justified. Witt will play Wendy Crowe, the smart, sexy sister of crime lord Dale Crowe (Michael Rapaport). She’s a paralegal and the public face of the Crowe crime family.
