Jere Burns to Play Major Role on Burn Notice

by at . Comments

Don't worry, Michael Westen. Jere Burns will soon be there for you.

The veteran actor (Miami Medical, Off the Map, Justified) has landed a key season five role that may even carry over into next summer. Look for Burns to appear as Anson Fullerton, a clinical psychologist with experience in human behavior, along with a history of working with covert agents, that will assist Michael in his quest for answers.
