Edi Gathegi joins the cast of the CW drama Beauty and the Beast, playing a character named Kyle, an agent for a top-secret organization who "can easily assess anyone’s weaknesses and happily exploit them."

In the series, Kristin Kreuk plays Catherine Chandler, a detective who witnessed her mother being shot the same night she is saved from her mother´s murderers by a supposed beast. Nine years later, a case leads her to discover that Vincent Keller, an ex soldier, killed in action during military service is actually alive. As Catherine gets to know him, she starts finding out more about her mother´s murder and about who (and what) Vincent really is.

Gathegi will debut on the show, currently in its first season, when it returns on January 24.
