Whedonverse go-to girl Eliza Dushku is coming to CBS’ ‘The Big Bang Theory‘ – and once there, she is gonna get all up in the boys’ business.

Dushku will guest-star in at least one episode as an FBI agent assigned to conduct a background check on Wolowitz (played by Simon Helberg) when he needs high-level clearance for a new project. In that capacity, Dushku’s G-woman is going to have a lot of questions for Howard’s closest (and quirkiest) confidants.

Think one of guys will divulge exactly what Howard did with the robotic arm he pinched from NASA? Or maybe relate the time he stalked a bevy of America’s Next Top Models?

An alumna of such Joss Whedon series as ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer‘ and more recently ‘Dollhouse,’ Dushku represents the latest sci-fi siren to visit the high-rated ‘Big Bang.’ Previous guest stars of a similar sort include Summer Glau (‘Firefly’) and Katee Sackhoff (‘Battlestar Galactica’), who is due for an encore early in the coming season.

CBS’ ‘The Big Bang Theory’ debuts in its brand-new time slot this Thursday at 8/7c. Dushku appears in the seventh episode.
