Leverage favorite Christian Kane is returning to TNT, playing brother to Rebecca Romijn on the soon-to-premiere King & Maxwell, TVLine has confirmed.
Also, TV vet Jerry O’Connell is set to guest on his wife Rebecca’s new series, which bows June 10.
Based on the David Baldacci novels about former Secret Service agents-turned-private eyes, the TNT drama stars Jon Tenney (The Closer) and Romjin (X-Men) in the title roles of Sean King and Michelle Maxwell.
Kane will surface in Episode 6 as Michelle’s (barely) older black sheep brother JT, a smart, charming and unconventional ex-cop who now works in the private sector, and calls upon his kin for help. (The actor first shared the news via Twitter.)
O’Connell — whose new We Are Men sitcom debuts on CBS this fall — meanwhile will guest in a different episode as a bottom-of-the-barrel P.I. who is always one step behind, EW.com reports.
Army Wives star Catherine Bell is going to spend some time with King & Maxwell.
EW has learned exclusively that the former JAG star has booked a multi-episode arc on TNT’s forthcoming drama, which stars Jon Tenney and Rebecca Romijn, and comes from NCIS: LA executive producer Shane Brennan.
Bell will play a character named Joan Dillinger, ex-lover of Sean King (Tenney). “I’ve been a big fan of Catherine Bell for a long time, so it’s very exciting to have her on King & Maxwell,” says Brennan. “Catherine has that perfect blend of strength, intelligence and beauty which makes her perfect for the role of the formidable Joan Dillinger.”
The drama, premiering June 10 on TNT, centers on the crime-solving adventures of private eye team Sean King and Michelle Maxwell (Romijn).
