Tricia Helfer by Justin Stephens/Sci Fi and Jeffrey Donovan by Jim Fiscus/USA
Tricia Helfer's post-Cylon career is heating up.

Sources confirm to me exclusively that the Battlestar Galactica babe has landed a multi-episode arc on USA Network's fraktastic Burn Notice, which launches its second season on July 10. Helfer will play Carla, Michael's sleek, sexy and lethal "handler," who often comes across as unaffected and slightly amused by him.

Teases series creator Matt Nix: "To protect the people he loves, Michael is forced to work for Carla - his only link to the people behind his burn notice."

Helfer, who recently inked a talent holding deal with Fox (which produces Burn Notice), will juggle her Burn duties with the final season of BSG - which is easier said than done considering BSG shoots in Vancouver and BN in Miami. But that's what first-class cabins were made for, right?

Burn Notice and Tricia Helfer - does it get any better than that? Well, does it?!
