South Side native and Curie Metro High School grad Milauna Jemai Jackson has joined "Strike Back" in its third Cinemax season as Kim Martinez, a tough DEA Agent who joins forces with Section 20. She doesn't take any crap from anyone, which Jackson says is a "refection of who I am." "I can honestly detect BS when I see it," she told me at San Diego Comic-Con International. The L.A. resident misses her family in Chicago, as well as Harold's Chicken, Garrett's popcorn, Gino's East and Pizzeria Uno. Jackson previously appeared as played Wheels in the series "Squad 85" and Willie Mae in "Blood Done Sign My Name." Other credits include "Rizzoli & Isles," "NCIS," "Flash Forward" and "Lincoln Heights."
