The character will be named Paul Anderson and “he’s now working as a bartender under an assumed name, and he gets into trouble with some very nasty Russian guys," Nix added. "He’s Michael should Michael succumb to some of the demons that haunt ex-spies.”

The fourth season of Burn Notice premieres on June 3.
