Burn Notice: John Seda (Homicide, The Pacific) will guest star on the USA smash later this season as Cole, a disgruntled ex-Marine who now works as a killer for hire. Elsewhere, Tim Matheson and Garret Dillahunt have signed on to reprise their respective roles as “Dead” Larry Sizemore and jailbird Simon.
Season four of Burn Notice kicked off last week. The show airs Thursdays at 9 on USA.
Here is another synopsis for the episode, from TV Guide:
In the third-season finale, Michael goes up against a terrorist who’s threatening to detonate a bomb in Miami if Michael doesn’t cooperate with his plans. To make matters worse, the FBI is closely following Michael’s every move.
Burn Notice showrunner Matt Nix did a Q & A yesterday and talked about the guest stars this season. He also dropped some vague spoilers about the general direction of the show. The interview is here.
Well certainly in the finale, we have Garret Dillahunt coming and doing a pretty amazing bad guy. Let’s see, the guy who played Tony Almeida on 24. I’m completely blanking on his name. In any case, he is in the episode after this week’s episode and he is playing a bad guy who Fiona has a real connection to. Oh sorry, Carlos Bernard, yes playing a bad guy who is really sort of only removed from the characters on the show by— under other circumstances he could have been one of the team, but he is willing to do certain things that they’re not willing to do and that’s a divide that they just can’t cross. But he’s a guy who’s really committed to what he’s doing, really cares about what he’s doing. It’s a pretty devastating performance. He’s pretty awesome. I’d say Garret and Carlos Bernard are the ones that are upcoming that really jump out at me right now.
