Mentalist Alum Amanda Righetti Joins Carlton Cuse Drama Pilot Colony

Amanda Righetti Cast Colony Pilot USA Network

From Red John to little green men?

The Mentalist‘s Amanda Righetti has been cast in Carlton Cuse’s alien-invasion drama pilot Colony, our sister site Deadline reports.

Righetti will play Madeline, younger sister of Katie (played by The Walking Dead‘s Sarah Wayne Callies) and mom of a diabetic child who needs insulin. From the character breakdown, it seems like Madeline will do whatever is necessary to take care of her family.

Josh Holloway (Lost) will lead the project, which is set in Los Angeles after aliens occupy the city.

The part is Righetti’s first regular role since leaving The Mentalist earlier this year. Her other credits include Reunion and The O.C., and she appeared in last season’s Chicago Fire/Chicago P.D. crossover event.

    ANOTHER Carlton Cuse pilot? Busy guy.

  2. Jess says:

    As a long time fan of Sarah Wayne Callies I’ve always wanted to see Elizabeth Reaser or Stana Katic play her sister. I can see this though.

  3. Mary Kate says:

    I hope this show is a success! Love me some Josh Holloway and Amanda Righetti’s great too.

  4. Lauren says:

    Still hoping Righetti’s S.H.I.E.L.D agent, from Captain America: The First Avenger, pops up Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
