In “Perception,” Eric McCormack plays Dr. Daniel Pierce, a neuroscientist and professor recruited by the FBI to help solve complex cases. His intimate knowledge of human behavior and masterful understanding of the mind give him an extraordinary ability to read people. But his eccentric view of the world and less-than-stellar social skills can often interfere with his work. Rachel Leigh Cook co-stars as FBI agent Kate Moretti, Pierce’s former student and the person responsible for recruiting him to work for the government. Arjay Smith plays Max Lewicki, the teaching assistant whose primary job is to keep Pierce in line and on task. Kelly Rowan is Natalie Vincent, Pierce’s best friend and every bit his intellectual equal. In addition, award-winning actor LeVar Burton (“Roots,” “Star Trek: The Next Generation”) will play a recurring role as Paul Haley, a dean at the university.
