Felicity Huffman has signed on for a recurring role opposite Chris O’Dowd and Ray Romano in Season 2 of Epix’s dark comedy series Get Shorty.

The Desperate Housewives alum will play Clara Dillard, a mothering, high-level special agent for the FBI who’s described as hippie therapist meets J. Edgar Hoover. She takes over the investigation focusing on Amara and the crime organization in Season 2.

In addition, we’ll be seeing more of Gladys next season. Sarah Stiles, who recurred as Gladys in Season 1, has been promoted to series regular for the second season.

In Season 2, Miles Daly (O’Dowd) struggles to reconcile his ambitions as a filmmaker and a family man with his skill set as a career criminal. His progress in Hollywood is jeopardized when the washed-up producer (Romano), with whom he partnered in Season 1, agrees to wear a federal wire.

The dark comedy from MGM Television, which is based in part on the 1990 Elmore Leonard bestseller and created for television by Davey Holmes (Shameless, In Treatment), returns to Epix later this year.

The cast also includes Sean Bridgers, Carolyn Dodd, Lidia Porto, Goya Robles, Megan Stevenson and Lucy Walters.

Huffman most recently appeared in the ABC anthology series American Crime, earning Emmy nominations for each of its three seasons.

Stiles, Tony-nominated for Hand of God, is repped by Authentic, CESD and Schreck Rose.
