Owensboro native Haley Strode has racked up quite the resume in the past couple of years. She appeared on the CMT series Still the King and the ABC series The Astronaut Wives Club. Strode will be coming back to TV New Year's night. 

She will be guest-starring on the Fox series version of Lethal Weapon as a new love interest for Cole, played by Seann William Scott. Here's a synopsis of the episode courtesy of TV Weekly Now:

Meanwhile, Murtaugh worries about the connection between the murder he’s investigating and a new opportunity for Trish to serve as co-counsel on a high-profile lawsuit with Leo Getz (guest star Thomas Lennon)."
