Jaime Ray Newman Joins ABC’s ‘Mind Games’ As Regular, Rockmond Dunbar Cast In ‘The Mentalist’ As Potential New Regular

EXCLUSIVE: Jaime Ray Newman (Drop Dead Diva) has landed a new regular role on ABC’s midseason drama series Mind Games, about two brothers — Ross (Christian Slater), a con man, and Clark (Steve Zahn), suffering from bipolar disorder — as they run a problem solving firm that uses psychological manipulation. Newman will play Anna Gordon, a seasoned con woman who is trying to turn over a new leaf and is hoping that her somewhat  skill set will be perfect for Ross and Clark’s company.

Rockmond Dunbar (The Game) is set for a recurring three-episode arc on CBS’ veteran drama The Mentalist, with potential to become a series regular. He will appear in episodes 7, 8 and 9, playing FBI Supervisory Agent Dennis Abbott who is a tough, no-nonsense cop who doesn’t suffer fools and isn’t overly impressed by Patrick Jane’s skills or charm. The Mentalist is looking for new regulars as part of a cast changeover that includes the planned exit of original cast members Amanda Righetti and Owain Yeoman in a plot twist. The series also is casting a new female regular.
