Kathleen Robertson Checks Into Bates Motel

Get More: Casting News

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.

  • 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…
