Jamie Hector will appear on Fox's 'Lie to Me'

"The Wire's" Marlo is back!

Well, kind of.

Jamie Hector, who played the ruthless drug lord on the HBO cult hit, will appear on the Season 3 premiere of Fox's "Lie to Me" on Nov. 10, series star Kelli Williams confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter at the Fox Fall Party at BOA Steakhouse in West Hollywood on Monday night.

And Hector will still be on the wrong side of the law. "We have a huge bank heist [in] the first episode back. ... We also have a gang episode and a wonderful actress, Monique Curnen, has joined us on sort of a recurring basis, who could maybe be a crooked cop, helper," said Williams.

Also slated to appear on the Emmy-nominated drama: "Big Love's" Shawn Doyle and "Battlestar Galactica's" Tricia Helfer.

"She's lovely," Williams says of Helfer. "Of course I watched ‘Battlestar' and thought that she would be much like Six, but she's really laid back. She's not a Cylon and I'm really happy about that!"

Williams says her character, Dr. Gillian Foster, might loosen up next season as well.

"I'm hoping that my character will break some rules this season, not always be such a rule follower. I keep joking around with Tim Roth that I should switch places with him for a day. I get to be like him, he has to be Foster: Deal with the bills, the finances and putting out fires and stuff like that that he gets himself into," she said.
