'My Own Worst Enemy' Adds Alfre Woodard


NBC's new series "My Own Worst Enemy" has added a little prestige to its cast in the form of Alfre Woodard.

Woodard, a multiple Emmy winner, will star opposite Christian Slater in the show, which is scheduled to air at 10 p.m. Mondays in the fall. The show centers on Slater's character, a middle-class suburbanite whose alter ego is a spy.

Woodard will play the supervisor of the spy part of Slater's character, according to The Hollywood Reporter. She will also have another side that has contact with the everyday Slater.

The cast for the Jason Smilovic-created show also includes Mike O'Malley, Saffron Burrows and Yara Martinez.

Woodard has won four Emmys, most recently for a guest spot on "The Practice" in 2003. She's been nominated numerous other times, including twice in 2006 for her season-long stint on "Desperate Housewives" and the CBS movie "The Water Is Wide."

Her credits also include "The Forgotten," "A Wrinkle in Time," "Miss Evers' Boys" and "St. Elsewhere."
