    Kitty Winter is coming to Elementary. Who should take on this well-known role?


    He is also a character in the failed series "Smith". So many actors were i n the Gardian sseries also who come back on the mentalist. Is there a conspiracy or a lack of talent available for this series. Another thing I've noticed is that a lot of low life villains have capped and super whitened teeh and manicures, could this be avoided it is distracting. Thank goodness Baker has the decency not to have teeth that are so white as to blind you. His personality does that.
