Actress Krista Allen, formerly from Days of Our Lives, will guest star on PERCEPTION, the new TNT drama that stars Eric McCormack (from Will & Grace fame) as Dr. Daniel Pierce, an eccentric neuroscientist and university professor who helps the FBI solve complex criminal cases.

According to TV Guide, Allen will play Allison Bannister, a wealthy alumna/widow who is a fan of Pierce’s work.
