Morena Baccarin has joined the cast of upcoming Showtime drama series Homeland.

The project will star Claire Danes as Carrie Anderson, a CIA officer who suspects that an Iraq war veteran (Damian Lewis) is involved in an al-Qaida plot.

Showtime has now confirmed that former V star Baccarin will play Jessica Brody, the wife of Lewis's Sgt. Nick Brody. She will replace Scottish actress Laura Fraser, who played the role in the original Homeland pilot.

Baccarin played alien queen Anna on the recently-axed V, and previously starred on Fox's Firefly.

She also made a recent guest appearance on The Mentalist and has featured in episodes of Medium, Numb3rs and How I Met Your Mother.

Homeland has been written by 24's Howard Gordon, Alex Gansa and Gideon Raff, and will also star Mandy Patinkin and David Harewood.

The series will premiere on Showtime in the fall.
