Jeri Ryan gains 'Leverage'

Actress to recur on TNT drama

Jeri Ryan is set to recur on TNT's "Leverage."

On the sophomore drama about a group of vigilaties in pursuit of bringing down bigwigs, she will play Tara, a smart-ass, street-wise con woman whom Sophie (Gina Bellman) calls on for help and who gets sucked into the Leverage family.

Ryan most recently co-starred on CBS' "Shark."

Her series credits also include "Boston Public," "The O.C." and "Star Trek: Voyager."

She is repped by ICM and Kyle Fritz Management.
