Josie Loren (Make It or Break It) has joined the cast of The Mentalist season 7 in a recurring role.
Loren will play Michelle Vega, the newest addition to Patrick Jane’s FBI crew. She’s a rookie fresh out of the FBI Academy: eager, ambitious, hungry to learn. She’s never heard of Jane, knows nothing of his methods or past, and casts a skeptical eye on his unorthodox, rule-busting ways.
Loren — whose deal includes a series regular option — will partly fill the void left by original cast members Owain Yeoman and Amanda Righetti, who exited the series in the spring.
