Ari Graynor

We already know that Fringe's Agent Olivia Dunham (Anna Torv) has a ticked-off stepfather somewhere out there who may or may not be stalking her. But before he makes an appearance, get ready to meet Olivia's sister.

Ari Graynor, who chewed the scenery as a drunk girl in Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist this summer, will play Torv's younger sister in at least three episodes. You might also remember Graynor from The Sopranos; she very memorably played Meadow's unstable roommate at Columbia. Graynor's character will arrive on the scene in the midst of a relationship crisis with a daughter in tow. She crashes with her big sister for a while. Graynor's first episode will air in January.

Sounds like part of a pattern to me, a pattern of awesomeness.
