Emily Swallow Cast as Possible Series Regular on The Mentalist

by at . Comments

Emily Swallow has landed a major role on The Mentalist.

The actress (Southland, Monday Mornings) will come on board the CBS drama as Kim Fischer, described by TV Line "an enigmatic woman" who will form some kind of relationship with Jane. She is currently booked for three episodes.

Like Rockmond Dunbar, who was cast last month as a no-nonsense FBI agent, Swallows may end up as a series regular, with the show looking to replace Amanda Righetti and Owain Yeoman once they depart about halfway through The Mentalist Season 6.

New episodes of this hit return on Sunday, September 29.

I can't believe that Grace and Wayne are leaving! The chemistry among this cast has kept me watching all these years! After RJ, I was looking forward to new story-lines and plots, to be solved by Jane and this crew. I love all the characters on The Mentalist, but I agree with Rene, Cho is gorgeous. I find myself anticipating the scenes he is in.

Just a question......why are Owain Yeoman and Amanda Righetti leaving ? Were they fired ? Can't ever remember a show losing 2 at one time. Or, are they both giving up acting? Cannot understand it when a person leaves a successful series for nothing. Almost never hear of them again. Like, NCIS, Cote de Pablo leaving because ? There are so many actors out there that would give anything to have a regular job (series).

Please don't replace Lisbon's role in Mentalist. She is so much of a team with Jane and if eventually Grace and Rigsby have to go, I'll go too. Cho is
my heartthrob, so handsome and 'manly.' All five are the perfect match for this series. As far as I am concerned, none of them can be replaced. It makes me angry that Castle is shown back to back over and over again (TNT)while Mentalist is 'cast' aside until a filler is needed. Mentalist has FAR the most interesting plots. I am happy that CBS is giving us live episodes of the Mentalist. I pray they don't pre-empt the show. Mentalist is 'cast' aside (no pun intended)

I love Lisbon and I'm taking you to the real police and they're going to lock you up for the rest of your life.
