Burn Notice Scoop: Dean Cain, Eric Roberts, Kristanna Loken Booked For Red-Hot Finale

Burn Notice has lined up a smokin’ trio for its upcoming finale.

Dean Cain, Eric Roberts and Kristanna Loken have snagged juicy guest-star roles on the USA Network smash, which returns November 3 with the final six episodes of Season 5.

Superman-turned-TV-movie-mainstay Cain will play Ryan, a cocky and dangerous CIA officer with years of experience in both field work and intelligence gathering who can sometimes be his own worst enemy.

Roberts’ character Reed, meanwhile, makes his living supplying foreign, unfriendly governments with sensitive information about the US. (He does this by finding American assets that can be compromised — disgruntled spies and the like — and getting them to sell what they know.)

Lastly, ex-Terminatrix Loken (a.k.a. Painkiller Jane) will potentially recur as Rebecca, a hotshot young CIA agent with counterterrorism experience who gets assigned to Michael’s team.

All three will turn up in December’s Season 5 closer.

    Cool! Love the show and the new cast additions too.

  2. kAT says:

    WHY bring in another cast member? Why are shows always trying to mess with a good thing? I’m ok with Jesse coming along for the ride but enough already…Michael, Fi, and Sam are doing just fine on their own, thank you very much!!!

    • Len says:

      Unless you expect a show where a few main characters sit in a room talking amongst themselves, there are going to be people added to the cast for single episodes, a few episodes, or several. It doesn’t mess with anything…its necessary. Are you someone who complained about the inclusion of Max, only to realize that it was a short term role? Same concept here.

    • DJ Rogue says:

      I SO agree with you, kAT. Now that they’ve scaled back on the overuse of Jesse, I can deal with him. But more (regular) characters are unnecessary.

    • Justin says:

      What’s your problem? They’re only being added as guest stars, not regular or recurring roles. One episode, then they’re gone. Also, back off of Jesse, he’s been a great addition since the beginning, regular or recurring. Michael, Fi, and Sam, by the way, are not doing fine on their own, thanks to that SOB that burned Michael and has Fi working for him, too. Those two need all the help they can get, and Sam just isn’t gonna cut it. So stop complaining about little things and just enjoy the show!

        I think the other 3 consider him a part of the team, he just happens to have his own security job, but whenever they need help he’s there, whenver he needs help they’re there too… anyway if the fans of this show didn’t like him, he would have been completely out of the picture by now…

    • melanie says:

      Jesse is a great addition that has been apreciated by the fans and he is in almost every episode since he brings in some new jobs or helps with jobs from the other three… but they need to hook him up with one those hot women from the cia, that new blonde or agent pierce

  3. James says:

    @kAT I don’t think they’re trying to bring in a new character in the same vein as Jesse, more like bring in a recurring CIA agent similar to Agent Pearce. We’ve got to deal with more CIA agents if Michael’s going to be working for them a lot more

  4. Sue says:

    Dean Cain? I am so there. Love him and I’ve missed seeing him on TV.

  5. Colleen says:

    Like James, I don’t think they mean they are adding someone to Team Westen. They are talking about the CIA people Michael will be dealing with.

  6. Cass says:

    Dean Cain! Now I’m even more excited for the second half of Season 5!

  7. Dave says:

    Agreed but after four and a half years it is getter predictable and stale.

    the new girl should hookup witj Jessie
