Exclusive: Prison Breaker Chris Vance Shakes Up Rizzoli & Isles (But Mostly Rizzoli)

Prison Break‘s Chris Vance (Whistler!) has booked a major recurring role on TNT’s breakout hit Rizzoli & Isles, sources confirm to TVLine exclusively.

The Brit — whose credits also include Showtime’s Dexter and Fox’s short-lived shrink procedural Mental — will play Sgt. Major Charles “Casey” Jones, an old flame of Rizzoli’s (Angie Harmon) who comes back into her life just as she’s struggling to recover from being shot and nearly killed in the line of duty.

Vance will debut in R&I‘s season 2 opener on July 11.
