Melrose Place alumna Brooke Langton, who had been a recurring player on Friday Night Lights during its freshman season (playing Jackie Miller), has joined the new NBC drama Life as a series regular, says the Hollywood Reporter. Langton is replacing Melissa Sagemiller in the role of the married lawyer who gets the central figure, a wrongfully imprisoned cop, sprung from the joint and back onto the force. Adulterous sparks ensue.
