Grace Gummer – the daughter of Meryl Streep who guest-starred as Angelica Huston’s daughter in Smash last season – will join the cast of ABC’s new midseason drama Zero Hour.
Gummer is expected to recur as FBI Agent Paige Willis in the conspiracy drama about a publisher of a paranormal enthusiast magazine (ER’s Anthony Edwards) whose wife is abducted from her antique clock shop. The drama also stars Scott Michael Foster (Californication, The River) Jacinda Barrett (Matching Jack, Middle Men) and Michael Nyqvist (Mission: Impossible – Ghost Patrol) and is from Paul T. Scheuring (Prison Break).
The actress will make her debut in the third week of the drama that has yet to be slotted. Meanwhile, her sister Mamie is the star of CW’s Emily Owens M.D. that premieres on Oct. 16.
