lucy lawless gi Lucy Lawless joins 'No Ordinary Family'Get excited, “Xena” fans. Lucy Lawless is set to join the cast of ABC’s  “No Ordinary Family” for at least five episodes, TV Line reports.

So who is the kick*ss woman playing? According to a source, she’ll be playing “a powerful woman and potential adversary for the Powell clan whose agenda could put the family in danger.” Hm… what power do you think her character possesses… assuming she does actually possess one?

Lawless’ arc will keep her around until the end of the season. If the producers were hoping for a ratings boost (the freshman sci-fi show is in danger of being canceled), casting Lawless was a pretty smart move.

After wrapping her arc on “Family,” Lawless is off to New Zealand to start shooting the highly anticipated second season of “Spartacus: Blood and Sand” for Starz.
