Broadway alum Montego Glover is trading in her dancing shoes for a badge. The Tony nominee will play the recurring role of FBI analyst Lawrence on season two of the FOX drama The Following, according to TVLine.com. The series’ second season will begin January 2014. No official premiere date has been set.
Glover garnered a Tony nomination for her turn as Felicia in Memphis, and also appeared on Broadway in The Color Purple. No stranger to the small screen, Glover’s additional TV credits include Smash, Hostages, Made in Jersey, White Collar, Law & Order and The Good Wife.
In The Following, Glover will appear alongside Kevin Bacon (whom she is now only one degree away from). The drama follows FBI agent Ryan Hardy (Bacon) as he tries to catch murderous cult leader Joe Carroll (James Purefoy) after his escape from prison. Created by Kevin Williamson, The Following premiered January 21, 2013.
