Burn Notice has tapped acting vet Burt Reynolds to guest-star as a legendary operative, now retired and cast out of the CIA, who serves as somewhat of a cautionary tale for Michael (Jeffrey Donovan).
âThings have not gone well for him since he left the spy service,â explains series creator Matt Nix of Reynoldsâ character, Paul Anderson. âHeâs now working as a bartender under an assumed name, and he gets into trouble with some very nasty Russian guys.
âHeâs not precisely like Michael,â adds Nix. âHeâs Michael should Michael succumb to some of the demons that haunt ex-spies.â
Reynoldsâ episode will air during the showâs fourth season, premiering on June 3.
