Christina Ricci has signed on for three episodes of TNT’s Holly Hunter crime drama “Saving Grace,” which begins its second season on Monday.

Hunter stars as Grace Hanadarko, an intense Oklahoma City police detective whose wild personal life translates into a no-holds-barred approach to her detective work.

Ricci will play a young detective who temporarily partners with Grace, whose current partner, Ham Dewey (Kenneth Johnson), is going on a leave of absence. The actress most recently appeared in the film “Speed Racer.”
