Charlene Amoia is ditching the funnies for fights, joining Steven Seagal in the new film Sniper : Special Forces, which recently wrapped in Los Angeles.
The How I Met Your Mother alum joins Rob Van Dam, Capt. Dale Dye, and Tim Abell in the Fred Olen Ray directed movie.
Sent to rescue an American congressman being held by the Taliban in the remote Afghan village of Matubakh, SFC Vic Mosby (Tim Abell) is dismayed when several of his team are killed -- but he suspects that there may be survivors who have been left behind. His commanding officer refuses to let him mount a rescue, but instead sends him and his team to retrieve a truckload of vital munitions. En route, Vic is shocked to learn he has a stowaay -- go-getting NATO correspondent Janet Conrad (Amoia), a "spoiled rich girl" who is out to get her story, no matter the risk. In direct violation of orders, Vic detours back to the village to ascertain the fate of his comrades. It's a virtual suicide mission, as he and his tiny team enter a town teeming with terrorists and face an uncertain fate...
Seagal has a small role; he plays SFC Jake Chandler.
