NBC is gearing up for the premiere of the new series Taken, and they've just cast their leading lady: Jennifer Beals.
The Flashdance star will play Christina Hart, the Special Deputy Director of National Intelligence who acts as a mentor to Bryan Mills (Clive Standen). Deadline describes her character:
Cultured and powerful with a wealth of field experience, [Hart's] current government position has her overseeing an elite team of operatives who take care of America’s national security emergencies.
