There's no new episode of The Mentalist this week, but there is news for fans to contemplate.
According to a CBS casting notice, the drama will add a new regular to the CBI unit in early 2010.
The character, Agent Beth Scott, is described as a forty-something, authoritative African American woman. She's a veteran in the California Bureau of Investigations headquarters and may remain on the show beyond this season.
The scoop raises two questions:
- Is someone leaving the team?
- Who should play the new character?
We await your answers and suggestions.
