Eric Winter is making the move to primetime.

The longtime Days of Our Lives star will recur on the new season of The Mentalist. His character, FBI agent Craig O'Laughlin, will serve as a potential love interest for Amanda Righetti's Grace Van Pelt.

This highly-rated drama returns with new episodes on September 23. In other recent casting news, it's been confirmed that Malcolm McDowell will reprise his role of Britt Stiles in the fall.

What a lovely choice for Grace's heart. It will be nice to have a ew charactor that isn't a villain, I do hope Jane likes him however or this will not bode well. Bonne Chance!
