Prison Break’s Rockmond Dunbar To Guest On ‘The Mentalist’

Sons of Anarchy Authority Vested Season 5 Episode 2 (8)

The Mentalist has added actor Rockmond Dunbar to the show’s sixth season line-up of featured guest stars. According to TV Line, Dunbar is slated to play the character Dennis Abbott. Dunbar’s alter ego is an FBI Supervisory Agent who isn’t a big believer in the skills and talents of Patrick Jane (Simon Baker).

TV Line has also shared that if all goes well, Dunbar could be promoted from guest star to series regular in the upcoming season. The actor would likely fill the void being left by ‘Mentalist’ residents Amanda Righetti and Owain Yeoman who are both departing the series mid-season. It was revealed in early August that the duo would be leaving after the identity of Red John is reportedly revealed.

Joining Dunbar, season 6 of ‘The Mentalist’ will also include guest star Lauren Stamile (Grey’s Anatomy). Dunbar’s TV credits include ‘Kiss Kiss Bang Bang’, ‘Alien Raiders’, the FX series ‘Sons of Anarchy’, ‘The Game’, ‘Terriers’ and ‘The Closer’. Most recently Dunbar has been seen in ‘Highland Park’ and ‘The Cheaters Club’.

‘The Mentalist’ will bow on CBS in its new season, Sunday, September 29. Are you ready for a whole new year with Jane and the new faces headed to show? Leave us your comments below.
