Chris Vance, who’s currently headlining Fox’s shrink procedural Mental, is Burn Notice-bound.
Sources confirm to me exclusively that the ex-Prison Breaker has booked a four-episode arc as Gilroy, a sophisticated and ruthless former MI-6 bigwig who now oversees freelance black ops.
Translation: He’s about to make life hell for one Michael Westen.
Vance will appear during the second half of Burn Notice‘s current third season, tentatively scheduled to air in early ’10. The gig won’t conflict with Vance’s Mental duties since production on the drama’s first (and likely only) season wrapped months ago.
