Abrams' highly anticipated spy show, 'Undercovers,' has claimed its first cast member.

The Hollywood Reporter brings news that Gerald McRaney has accepted the mission offered to him by NBC. 'Undercovers' will chronicle the adventures of a husband-and-wife spy team, and McRaney will play their boss, a CIA operative who recruited the couple.

McRaney recently appeared as Johnston Green on 'Jericho' and George Hearst on 'Deadwood.' He'll also be appearing in the upcoming big screen adaptation of 'The A-Team' and is perhaps best known for playing the title role on 'Major Dad.' He also played the father in 'The NeverEnding Story,' which is just all sorts of awesome.

We expect the next casting news for 'Undercovers' will be the two lead characters of Steven and Samantha, the retired spies who are lured back into the game. Abrams sometimes likes to keep it in the family, so don't be surprised if some of his former collaborators end up being on the show. It would be all sorts of meta-weird if 'Alias' co-stars Jennifer Garner and Michael Vartan were cast as our spies. And how about 'Lost' alum Evangeline Lilly or the former 'Felicity' herself, Keri Russell, as Samantha's ne'er-do-well sister?
