A CBS rep confirms to Zap2it that Lauren German ("Happy Town," "Hostel: Part II") will have a recurring part on the show's upcoming season as a former Homeland Security officer who joins McGarrett ( Alex O'Loughlin) and Co. on the Five-0 squad.

It's not exactly McGarrett's call, though: German's character is there at the behest of the new governor (Richard T. Jones), and her duties include keeping tabs on the team in addition to helping solve crimes. According to TVLine (which first reported the news), she's also a potential love interest for McGarrett (where that leaves Michelle Borth's character, Catherine Rollins, remains to be seen).

German is one of several new faces on "Hawaii Five-0" this season, joining Jones, "Lost" alumnus Terry O'Quinn and Tom Sizemore, who will all have recurring parts. The series began filming on Season 2 this week and is scheduled to premiere on Sept. 19.
