We were delighted to learn that ‘Thor‘ franchise standout Jaimie Alexander would next land on TV for an ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.appearance, thought it seems Alexander may stay on the small screen even longer. The erstwhile Lady Sif has joined ‘American Horror Story‘ creator Ryan Murphy‘s buzzworthy sexuality drama ‘Open‘ in a regular role, though HBO has yet to declare the show’s future.

Even without an official update from HBO’s recent press panels, ‘Open’ sees ‘True Detective‘ star Michelle Monaghan as Grace, a character who comes to question her marriage and sexuality upon meeting yoga instructor Windsor (‘Fringe‘s Anna Torv). Scott Speedman will portray Grace’s husband Jonathan, a sports marketing executive, while Jennifer Jason Leigh will play Torv’s partner Holly, an actress committed to her career. ‘The Hunger Games‘ star Wes Bentley also stars in the role of the “handsome but arrogant” Evan Foster, a blowhard who loves espousing his own theories on human sexuality, while ‘Archer‘ voice Aisha Tyler portrays a married nurse at Grace’s practice.

Via Deadline, ‘Thor’ star Alexander will take the role of Bentley’s Stepford wife Claire, suffering from postpartum depression and popping pills as a result. Previously, ‘Open’ has been billed as “a multi-character exploration of the complex, ever evolving landscape of sexuality, monogamy and intimacy in relationships,” written by ‘Dexter‘ co-executive producer Lauren Gussis.

The more Jaime Alexander the better, but what say you? Would you have wanted Alexander to hit the big screens as our new Wonder Woman, or will she turn more heads with ‘Open,’ should HBO pick up the series?
