Lost’s Jacob is coming to the aid of The Closer. Actor Mark Pellegrino, who also played Supernatural’s Lucifer, will recur on the TNT series beginning in mid-August.
Pellegrino will play Brenda’s high-powered defense attorney Gavin Baker, described by executive producer James Duff as “brisk, gay and formidable. He is ruthless in court and still manages to project an air of friendly professionalism.”
Mark’s character specializes in defending police officers in civil actions. Brenda will require his help after she is sued by the family of a gang member she placed in harm’s way. “Though he is easy to like, Gavin is extremely dangerous to underestimate,” Duff adds. “He is the only person on earth who can make Brenda hang up her cell phone.”
