This fall, Diane Farr to switch from fighting fires to crunching 'Numb3rs'
Diane Farr is going from fighting fires to fighting crime.
Farr, who stars in FX's "Rescue Me," will join the cast of the second-year CBS drama "Numb3rs" this fall, the network says. She'll be featured in multiple episodes, including the first two, this season and could become a regular on the show.
Her character is a recent FBI academy graduate who joins the bureau's Los Angeles office and works with Agent Don Eppes (Rob Morrow). "Numb3rs" also stars David Krumholtz as Don's brother Charlie, a genius math professor who uses his skills to help the FBI break cases. She would essentially replace Sabrina Lloyd ("Sports Night"), who has left the show.
Farr guest-starred in the final episodes of "Rescue Me" last season before becoming a regular this year as Laura, 62 Truck's first female firefighter. She previously co-starred with "Rescue Me" co-creator Denis Leary in ABC's "The Job" and in The WB comedy "Like Family" two seasons back.
Her other credits include co-hosting MTV's "Loveline" and recurring parts on "The Drew Carey Show" and "Roswell."
