"Everyone else in the Lisbon family is a policeman or fireman so Tommy is considered a bit of a black sheep," Creator Bruno Heller tells TV Guide. "We'll see that he's the kind of ne'er-do-well who will bring his 12-year-old daughter on a bounty-hunting expedition."

Thomas, who will forever be known as the kid in E.T. will guest star in late October.

The Mentalist, meanwhile, returns on September 22. Bookmark our spoilers section now for the most up-to-date show scoop!
