Exclusive: The Finder Tracks Down Eureka Star

The Finder has located an attorney for 50 Cent.

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.

  • Wow, The Finder is trying hard to lure viewers. Not sure it’s going to work. I didn’t like the show or it’s main characters.
