Speaking of the Vivica Fox brand (watch the revealing and fun 13-minute interview I posted of her yesterday HERE)...

Ms Fox has reportedly joined the cast of the Lifetime Network series, The Protector, in a major roles.

She will play a Captain Lisa Novak, said to be "the ex-wife of Miguel Ferrer’s Lieutenant Felix Valdez. Her introduction in Episode 12 stirs things up at the precinct for Ally Walker’s single mom/homicide detective Gloria and the rest of the team."

Stirs things up how? I dunno... I've actually never watched a single episode of The Protector. By the way, Tisha Campbell-Martin also co-stars in the series as a homicide detective, which, according to IMDB, "follows single mother, Gloria Shepherd, as she juggles her demanding personal and professional lives raising two children while working as a LAPD homicide detective."

The prime-time drama is still in its first season, airing Mondays at 10/9c.

Here's a video clip highlighting episode 1, with a decent dose of Tisha Campbell.
