Nadine Velazquez to Be a Series Regular on the TNT Hit Drama Series "Major Crimes"

Nadine Velazquez is set to be a series regular this season on TNT's hit drama series Major Crimes. Velazquez is best known for her roles on the television series My Name is Earl and The League. Last year, she also appeared in the Academy Award(R)-nominated film Flight.

In Major Crimes, Velazquez will play Deputy D.A. Emma Rios. Newly assigned to the Phillip Stroh case, Emma interviews Rusty (Graham Patrick Martin) about his involvement as a key witness in the murder case. She immediately causes a stir within the department, coming into conflict with Captain Raydor (Mary McDonnell) when she questions Raydor's intentions as Rusty's guardian and challenges her authority.
