The Mentalist recruits The Game actor Rockmond Dunbar for a three-episode guest arc, with potential to become a series regular, Deadline reports.

Dunbar will recur as FBI Supervisory Agent "Dennis Abbott" who is a tough, no-nonsense cop who doesn’t suffer fools and isn’t overly impressed by Patrick Jane’s skills or charm. Expect for him to pop up on episodes 7, 8 and 9.

The CBS procedural is looking for new regulars as part of a cast changeover that includes the planned exit of original cast members Amanda Righetti and Owain Yeoman in a plot twist. The series also is casting a new female regular, adds the report.
