LOS ANGELES (Zap2it.com) - On "Alias," the parade of guest agents continues, with comedian Richard Lewis following the undercover likes of Ethan Hawke, Peter Berg and Quentin Tarantino.

Lewis appears on the Sunday, March 2 episode of the ABC drama playing a CIA agent named Yeager. Agent Yeager provides Sydney (Jennifer Garner) with information that causes her to question the loyalties of her boyfriend/handler Vaughn (Michael Vartan). The episode was written by Jesse Alexander and directed by Ken Olin.

A stand-up comic and the author of "The OTHER Great Depression," Lewis has also starred in TV series including "Anything but Love" and "Hiller and Diller." In addition to a guest arc as a rabbi on "7th Heaven," Lewis appears regularly as himself on Larry David's HBO comedy "Curb Your Enthusiasm." He's currently taping episodes for the fourth season of "Enthusiasm."

Lewis' work in feature films has been diverse, ranging from the broad parody of Mel Brooks' "Robin Hood: Men In Tights" to more serious work in "Drunks" and "Leaving Las Vegas."

"Alias" airs Sunday nights at 9 p.m. ET on ABC.
