'Fringe' recruits Meghan Markle
Actress and former "Deal or No Deal" model Meghan Markle is joining the cast of "Fringe" next season.
Markle, who has guested on "90210" and a number of other shows, will have a recurring part on the FOX sci-fi series, according to The Hollywood Reporter. She'll be playing a young FBI agent who's described as "attractive, brash and quick-witted."

That description sounds an awful lot like the one for the character who's replacing Kirk Acevedo's Charlie Francis. Acevedo was let go from the show at the end of the season, reportedly because the show wanted to focus on the core group of Olivia Dunham (Anna Torv), Peter Bishop ( Joshua Jackson) and Walter Bishop (John Noble).
Having another FBI agent as only a recurring character would seem to help that goal.
Markle had a recurring part on "90210" last season as a West Beverly student named Wendy. She has also appeared on " Without a Trace," "Knight Rider" and " CSI: NY." She was a briefcase model on "Deal or No Deal" until early 2007.
