Jean Smart can’t get enough of comic book characters: The actress — who co-stars in FX’s Marvel drama Legion — has joined HBO’s upcoming Watchmen adaptation in a series-regular role, our sister site Deadline reports.

Smart will play an unnamed FBI agent who is investigating a murder. (There is speculation that Smart’s character is Agent Blake.)

Set in an alternate history where “superheroes” are treated as outlaws, the forthcoming drama “embraces the nostalgia of the original groundbreaking graphic novel while attempting to break new ground of its own,” per the network. Damon Lindelof (LostThe Leftovers) will oversee writing duties and serve as an executive producer.
