Burt Reynolds Gets Burnt
EW's Michael Ausiello reports that Burt Reynolds is joining the cast of Burn Notice... at least for one episode. According to Ausiello, Reynolds will play another ex-spy who was also burnt by the CIA and serves as a cautionary example to Michael Westen in at least one fourth season episode. “He’s not precisely like Michael,” series creator Matt Nix tells EW. “He’s Michael should Michael succumb to some of the demons that haunt ex-spies.” The fourth season of Burn Notice kicks off soon, returning to the USA network on June 3.
In other spy TV news, Ausiello also asserts that a fourth season pickup is likely for NBC's constantly on-the-bubble fan favorite Chuck, but that Fox's bubble quasi-spy show Human Target is potentially in trouble. Then again, I've heard from other sources that Human Target is a lock for renewal, so I guess no one really knows. We'll find out when Fox announces its fall schedule later this month.
