The star of "Being Erica" and "Soul Food" will play Evidence "Evi" Ryan, a former con-artist and lover of Duke, the character played by Eric Balfour.

As previously announced, Jason Priestley -- who stars in, directs and produces the dark comedy "Call Me Fitz" -- will also join "Haven" next season to direct one episode and guest star in a four-episode story arc.

Antoine and Priestley will join Emily Rose, who plays Audrey Parker, and Lucas Bryant, who plays Nathan Wuornos, on the show.
