Heche, who most recently starred on USA's Dig, will play a former FBI agent and medical examiner named Dr. Susan Langdon, according to TVLine, which first reported the news. Now working as a commentator and bestselling author, Dr. Langdon heads to Quantico to offer a seminar on identifying catching serial killers.
Quantico has proved to be a hit for ABC, which announced last week that the new drama was getting a full-season pickup.
Quantico airs Sundays at 10/9c on ABC. Are you looking forward to meeting Heche's character?
