TVLine has learned that the onetime Common Lawman will guest-star on CBS’ Person of Interest as a POI whom Detective Carter (played by Taraji P. Henson), Agent Shaw (new series regular Sarah Shahi) and Zoe Morgan (guest star Paige Turco) each try to catch the eye of — by any dressed-to-kill means necessary.
As previously scooped by TVLine, the trio of fierce femmes are united by a cause when Reese and Finch’s target for the week is revealed to be a ladykiller. Enter Kole, playing “a real lothario,” says exec producer Greg Plageman.
Since Common Law‘s one-and-done run ended, Kole has recurred on The Following and booked a multi-episode role on the coming season of White Collar.
Person of Interest opens Season 3 on Sept. 24, now airing Tuesdays at 10/9c; Kole appears in the third episode.
Previously at the CBS Upfronts, it was announced that the drama had upgraded Sarah Shahi, who plays Agent Shaw, to series regular.
A Whedonverse alum, Acker recently told TVLine that she expected to return in some capacity — she just wasn’t sure to what degree.
“I was really happy that I got the phone call [from The Machine] at the end [of the finale], so I feel like they have to at least bring me back,” she said. “The great thing about science fiction shows is I really don’t know even what the character is going to be [at any moment]. I feel like I took such a crazy journey [as Root] this year, learning all this stuff I did in the finale about The Machine and Harold. And now that she’s had lots of therapy, we’ll see!”
POI returns Sept. 24, now airing Tuesdays at 10/9c.
