Nouri will appear in the final two episodes of the third season of the Lifetime series, which airs Sundays at 10/9 CT. His character, Lt. General Walter Ludwig, will visit Fort Marshall to deliver some unexpected news to Claudia Joy's husband, Colonel Michael Holden (Brian McNamara).

In addition to his recurring role as NCIS' Eli David, Nouri also appears on Damages, playing Glenn Close's husband. (You might also know him as "that guy from Flashdance.")

Army Wives — the most successful series in Lifetime's 25-year history and cable's No. 1-rated drama among the coveted Women 18-49 demo — was renewed for a fourth season in February, months before Season 3 premiered.
