Currie Graham previously make a guest appearance on The Mentalist in the season 2 episode “Redline”. Rumors were swirling that his character, millionaire Walter Mashburn, would be making a return appearance in season three. Writer Jordan Harper confirmed the rumors recently on his Twitter account: “I’ve been told that the cat is out of the bag, so I guess it’s okay to tell [the] fans that I said hey to Currie Graham yesterday.”
Series creator Bruno Heller told Entertainment Weekly that Mashburn would continue flirting with Teresa Lisbon (played by Robin Tunney) when he made his reappearance on the show.
“As the story unfolds, it seems someone is determined to have Mashburn’s blood, and Mashburn is determined to have Lisbon,” he quipped. “Someone is going to get their wish.”
Graham has appeared on several other television shows, including Men in Trees, Boston Legal, Castle, The Closer, and Weeds.
The next new episode of The Mentalist will be airing tonight, October 14.
