Kathleen Robertson Checks Into Bates Motel

Kathleen-Robertson-Bates-MotelThe business of White Pine Bay, Oregon just got a little more intriguing.

Kathleen Robertson (Boss) is joining the Season 2 cast of A&E’s Bates Motel as Jodi, a smart, sexy businesswoman and artist who’s as hard-charging as she is successful.

While it’s not yet clear how exactly Robertson’s character will play into the world of Norma and Norman Bates, one thing is certain: Jodi’s a natural born leader who gets what she wants — personally and professionally — and she’s not afraid to use her arsenal of brains, charm and creativity to make things happen.

Alias alum Michael Vartan recently joined the Season 2 cast as a new romantic interest for Norma (played by Emmy nominee Vera Farmiga). Other new characters will include Christine, a local socialite in her late 30s who becomes Norma’s first real friend; and Caleb, Norma’s estranged fortysomething brother who comes to town to coax his little sis into investing in a presumably shady business venture.

Production on Bates‘ 10-episode second season got underway late last month; the show returns in 2014.

    Does this, in any way, effect her pilot with Taye Diggs on TNT? Either way, any word on Murder in the First? Great cast.

    Claire Arnold is always a up to no good!

    She looks a lot like Keegan Connor Tracy, who played the teacher murdered in the finale. I wonder if Robertson will be playing her sister, looking for her murderer…
