Exclusive: The Finder Tracks Down Eureka Star
The Bones spinoff has cast Eureka‘s Salli Richardson-Whitfield as Athena Brooks, the lawyer representing the music mogul played by special guest star 50 Cent.
As TVLine reported on Thursday, the actor-rapper-entrepreneur will appear in a February episode as Big Glade, a successful, intimidating hip-hop bigwig who is desperate to find the lost tracks of a deceased rap artist on his music label.
Whitfield’s character — who shares a past with Michael Clarke Duncan’s Leo — is responsible for hooking Big Glade up with professional finder Walter (Geoff Stults).
Fun Fact No. 1: This isn’t Whitfield’s first brush with the Bones-verse. Back in 2006, she guest-starred on the mothership as Assistant U.S. Attorney Kim Kurland.
Fun Fact No. 2: Kim Kurland is the name of Bones‘ longtime publicist.
