Rockmond Dunbar has landed a multi-episode arc on The Mentalist, Deadline.com reports.
The Prison Break alum, who currently recurs on Sons of Anarchy, will play FBI Agent Dennis Abbott, a no-nonsense cop who isn't impressed by Patrick Jane (Simon Baker).
With the impending exits of Amanda Righetti and Owain Yeoman, Dunbar has the potential to become a series regular.
The Mentalist returns Sunday, Sept. 29 at 10/9c on CBS.
(Full disclosure: TVGuide.com is owned by CBS.)
