As Karen Goodall, a former flame of Raylan's who came back to Kentucky to help him investigate a murder, Gugino was even sexier than in her too-brief titular turn on another Elmore Leonard-inspired series, Karen Sisco. Raylan's pregnant ex-wife Winona (Natalie Zea) had better watch her back!

Unjustifiably, Gugino is slated to do only one episode of FX's crime drama this season. She's currently starring on Broadway — and showing off a killer South African accent — in the acclaimed revival of Athol Fugard's The Road to Mecca. We hope Gugino takes the road to Lexington again next year.
