Justified‘ fans have long been wary of Natalie Zea’s multiple TV series commitments, and it seems even fans of her work on ‘The Following‘ could soon see reduced screentime. Zea has officially signed on for a recurring role on CBS’ Stephen King summer series, ‘Under the Dome,’ but whom might she play and for how long?

“We’ve cast the beautiful Natalie Zea as a woman who makes an alarming appearance in a few episodes beginning in Episode 9,” says Executive Producer Neal Baer to TVGuide of the casting. “She plays Maxine, and if you think [the show's big baddie] Jim Rennie (Dean Norris) is trouble, you haven’t seen trouble yet. And she’ll be connected to a number of our characters.”

Written by ‘LOST’’s Brian K. Vaughan with original ‘Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’ helmer Niels Arden Oplev directing its June 24 premiere, ‘Under the Dome’ follows the Stephen King book of the same name, focusing on a small New England town that finds itself inexplicably encased in a transparent dome with no hope of penetration. Inside, the residents of the town battle increasingly apocalyptic conditions as they struggle to understand their new circumstances.

The cast also includes Dean Norris (‘Breaking Bad‘), Mike Vogel (‘Bates Motel‘), Rachelle LeFevre (‘Twilight‘), Jeff Fahey (‘LOST‘), Colin Ford (‘Supernatural‘), Natalie Martinez, Alex Koch, Britt Robertson, Nicholas Strong and Jolene Purdy. Zea is expected to return to FOX’s ‘The Following’ at midseason, potentially putting in appearances for ‘Justified’ season 5 as well.
