Kevin Rankin has nabbed a recurring role on The Mentalist.
The former Friday Night Lights star - who has appeared on In Plain Sight, Lost, Justified and Trauma - will take on the character of Patrick Jane's brother-in-law this fall.
Said producer/creator Bruno Heller to EW.com: “He’s a hustler, a con artist, a ladies’ man - a cunning ne’er-do-well. Through his sister, he has an emotional hook in Jane that he’s not afraid to tug at when it serves his nefarious purposes.”
Rankin will first show up in this season’s second episode on September 30. Look for his character to eventually turn to Jane for help.
