'Lost,' '24' beefing up casts

Reiko Aylesworth circling; Amy Price-Francis set to recur

Reiko Aylesworth is in negotiations for a major recurring role on ABC's "Lost."

Meanwhile, Amy Price-Francis has landed a recurring role on Aylesworth's former show, Fox's "24."

In at least four episodes of ABC Studios' "Lost," Aylesworth will play Amy, a smart and successful professional woman with a love for the outdoors who is looking for the right man.

The actress, who played Michelle Dessler on "24," recurred on NBC's "ER" last season. She is repped by Gersh and MJ Management.

In a six-episode arc on the Imagine TV/20th TV-produced "24," Price-Francis will plays a ruthless attorney working for Jonas Hodges (Jon Voight).

Price-Francis, who recurred on Showtime's "Californication," co-stars on A&E's "The Cleaner" as Benjamin Bratt's wife and guest stars on "Nip/Tuck" next season. She is repped by David Dean Portelli at Precision Entertainment.
