The Mentalist Casting Call: Seeking "Name" Actor

by at . Comments

The Mentalist is casting for a new, evidently key character.

Based on the notice sent around this week, his name will be Sam Glenn and the CBS drama is hoping a "name" actor lands the role, which ought to appear on at least seven episodes. It looks like he'll have a connection to Teresa, as well as a possible rivalry with Patrick.

Jane and Lisbon

Here's a look at the complete casting note:

40-49, masculine, attractive, a California Bureau of Investigation Agent. He was Detective Teresa Lisbon's mentor as she was coming up through the ranks - in fact, they even dated for a while at one time. He is the head of a division that has been given the Red John murder investigation.

He is the one person who doesn't fall for Patrick Jane's charming ways...APPROXIMATELY A 7-EPISODE ARC. WE ARE LOOKING FOR A "NAME" ACTOR IN THIS ROLE. PLEASE SUBMIT ALL ETHNICITIES.

Are there going to be any parts for children on The Mentalist because I have wanted to be on it since I saw the first episode. My name is Leah and Im 13. I live in England but I would go anywhere to be on The Mentalist. If there are any parts for children can you please email me because it would mean so much to have even the smallest part. Thankyou :)

Teresa Lisbon: Why don't you go back to my place, jump into bed? I'll come and tuck you in when I'm done.
Patrick Jane: I'd rather be here with you.
