'Covert Affairs': Have mercy, Ben Mercer

1 September 2010 8:54 AM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

"What kind of cryptic nonsense is that?," asks Annie (Piper Perabo) on Tuesday night's (Aug. 31) "Covert Affairs."

Yeah, that's what we'd like to know.

Spoiler alert! Watch the episode "What is and What Should Never Be" before proceeding further.

As "Covert's" summer run begins to wind up, we turn from Auggie (Christopher Gorham) to Annie, delving into her character more. While there's still a bit of that "operation of the week" feel, there's one major change in her life: Ben Mercer (Eion Bailey) is back.

Well, we always knew he was around. Joan (Kari Matchett) and Arthur (Peter Gallager) knew he was around. Shoot, maybe Annie's sister (Anne Dudek) even knew it. The difference is, Annie only found out for certain last night that he was alive and meddling.

We have to say, we wish he stayed away. Well ... okay, we're going to amend that. Part of us is happy that Ben is back. »

The play runs through Aug. 13 at the Music Box Theatre in New York City. He is showing his dramatic range onscreen in the drama "Holy Rollers," now in theaters. But the actor faced several early false starts to his career—ones that might have stopped a lesser performer.Bartha thought he had won the lottery when he landed his first film role, playing a mentally handicapped man in a feature that starred top names Ben Affleck, Al Pacino, and Christopher Walken. The film was directed by Martin Brest, who helmed such hits as "Scent of a Woman" and "Midnight Run. »
