Fans of former CSI: New York actor Hill Harper (Dr Sheldon Hawkes) will be able to see him back on TV later this month, when the fourth season of Covert Affairs premieres on the USA Network on Tuesday, July 16 at 9:00pm ET/PT. “After being on a series for nine years, I wanted to make sure the next thing I did was the right thing,” Harper told TV Fanatic, which allowed him to make the leap from network television to a cable series. As CSI Files previously reported, Harper plays a CIA bureau chief named Calder Michaels, who is operating out of Columbia.
