Nikita star Lyndsy Fonseca has found her next TV gig.
The actress has been tapped to co-star in Amazon’s comedy pilot Down Dog, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
Down Dog centers on Logan (Bad Teacher’s Josh Casaubon), a surfer devoid of ambition and described as a Peter Pan who has been sliding through life on his charisma, charm and good looks. He is forced to take life seriously when he’s left in charge of his ex-girlfriend’s yoga studio.
Fonseca will play Winter, one of the yoga teachers at the studio. The character is described as a stunning if bedraggled waif who is unreliable and always late — and a love interest for Logan.
Robin Schiff created the project and will pen the script. Brad Silberling will direct the pilot.
Yay! We are so happy to hear about Lyndsy’s new project, and will continue to keep you all in the loop as we learn more!
Lyndsy and Noah took part in the Ice Bucket Challenge but changed it to the “Ice Cube” challenge earlier this afternoon due to the drought in California.

Here are a few behind the scenes shots
In other news Lyndsy attended an event back on June 10th the MaxMara And W Magazine Cocktail Party To Honor The Women In Film MaxMara Face Of The Future. Only one photo of Lyndsy has surfaced from the red carpet of the event here it is.
Best known for her character Alexandra ‘Alex’ Udinov in the action series Nikita, actress Lyndsy Fonseca was at the MCM London Comic Con to talk about her role on the aforementioned show, as well as the series How I Met Your Mother and the film Kick-Ass. Questions during the panel also saw Lyndsy mention her upcoming films, her passion for theatre and her taste in clothes.
Of Alex in Nikita she described the role as “very difficult”, but really appreciated the challenge of playing such a character. With Alex’s background as a sex slave who becomes a drug addict, when the pilot for the show was picked up Lyndsy decided to do some research, saying, “I went to a bookstore and I asked the man that worked there if he had any books on child sex trafficking, drug addiction… he looked at me like I wasn’t from Earth.”
When asked as to what kind of tactical training she had when working on Nikita, she said, “I’ve never had any martial arts training and I had never shot a gun before, so I had a lot to learn. It was actually more on the go than people think. It was like, ‘Okay, I have to do that, let’s go.’” She revealed how her background in dance made it easier to learn the choreography.

Lyndsy is at Comic Con this weekend in London, England!
There is a rumor that celebrities are charging for their autographs, this information is incorrect. The venue is charging for the event but not specifically for autographs. Lyndsy is very kind signing always signing autographs for fans. Please keep in mind when asking Lyndsy for an autograph she can not sign plain white paper and this is for her own safety. I will also take this time to remind fans that when you purchase an autograph online from places like ebay, there is no proof that the autograph is authentic and Lyndsy receives no profit from these sales.
