Majorino will play Special Agent Genny Shaw, who, as we previously reported
, will assist Booth (David Boreanaz
) in his search for vigilante sniper Jacob Broadsky (Arnold Vosloo
). Agent Shaw's inexperience, however, will quickly become apparent when her cover is blown by Broadsky during a stakeout. Ultimately, her mistake will put both her and Booth in Broadsky's crosshairs.
Besides her work as Mac on Veronica Mars
and her recurring role as Heather Tuttle on Big Love
, Majorino is best known for playing Deb in Napoleon Dynamite.
She most recently starred on ABC's short-lived legal drama, The Deep End
and guest-starred on the soap opera-themed episode of Castle.
