Exclusive: Elementary Recruits Callie Thorne

Elementary‘s Captain Gregson is in for a little bit of Roughness.

Callie Thorne, who plays therapist Dani Santino on USA’s Necessary Roughness, will guest star on CBS’ contemporary Sherlock Holmes drama as Gregson’s former partner, sources tell TVLine exclusively.

Her character, Terry D’Amico, is a veteran NYPD detective who shows up in Episode 6 amid discussion that she and the captain (Aidan Quinn) imprisoned the wrong man for a string of deadly home invasions years ago.

Prior to Roughness, Thorne played Jimmy’s widow Sheila on Rescue Me. Her other TV credits include The Wire, Prison Break, Burn Notice and Californication.

It doesn’t take Holmesian powers of deduction to come to the conclusion that if Thorne’s USA series isn’t renewed for another season – which is a definite possibility – she might make a rather nice addition to the new show’s cast.

Elementary airs Thursdays at 10/9c on CBS.

    Wow, second guest star news in one day. Man, they really are attempting to staunch the boredom before this ship sinks. Good luck with that.

    Wow, the hate people spew on these boards is unbelievable. Callie Thorne is awesome and I hope Necessary Roughness gets renewed, it ended last season with a nice cliffhanger. But if not she’d be a great addition to Elementary.

    So much for watching that series, Thorne is one of the most annoying actress on the screen. And yes MONK did it better, much better.

    I’ll be removing the show from my TiVo.

    I like this show so far. I’m looking forward to Callie Thorne doing a guest spot. I hope NR makes it because Dani and Nico are making things happen and I love T.K’s craziness!
