Fifty Shades of Grey star Max Martini is coming to USA's Covert Affairs — and we have the first-look photos!

In the August 5 episode, Martini will play Nathan Mueller, an ex-CIA operative who resurfaces after going off the grid. When Annie (Piper Perabo) and McQuaid (Nic Bishop) find him in Azerbaijan, Annie finds that she shares some of the same demons that haunt Mueller.

"We are so excited to have Max Martini on the show," co-creators Matt Corman and Chris Ord tells Yahoo TV. "He's the perfect actor for this role — a complicated and brooding CIA paramilitary officer with a mysterious past. Max carries such gravitas and deep humanity to everything he does."

Martini is no stranger to tough, burly roles. He plays Christian Grey's bodyguard in the upcoming Fifty Shades of Grey film, and has had cop/military roles in both movies and TV. His résumé includes TV shows like ABC's Revenge and CBS's The Unit, along with films such as Saving Private Ryan, Captain Phillips, and Taken.
