"She's very excited about the part as well as the chance to break into American television," the source tells Us.

Canalis -- an Italian TV personality who has had a few acting gigs in her native country -- met with the show's producers in January to discuss the potential role, which would have her act as a mysterious international secret agent.

According to the source, Canalis, 31, has Clooney, 48, to thank for the potential gig.

Can you believe these couples' age differences?

His good friend, Richard Kind, guest stars on Leverage's second season finale (which airs Wednesday), and helped her connect with the show's producers.

"He told her what a great experience it was and how much he enjoyed it," the source says. "So when the opportunity came up, she was thrilled."

Although she currently resides in Italy, she is making plans to come stateside to shoot her scenes.

"She knows she'll be over here to be with George at the Oscars so she’s hoping to shoot some of her part then," the source tells Us.

Leverage's season finale airs Wednesday at 10 p.m. EST on TNT. The next season is scheduled to premiere this summer.
