Major casting news from The Mentalist today:
Former Greek and Melrose Place star Michael Rady has signed on for a key role next season as Luther Wainwright, the new head of the CBI.
Yes, Rady is a lot younger than Patrick Jane, but TV Line confirms the actor will portray an intelligent agent with very little field experience. He takes the place of Aunjanue Ellis’ Madeleine Hightower as person in charge of the CBI.
The Mentalist returns with new episodes on September 22... and with Jane in jail!
