With one of cable's hottest shows ready to burn up the airwaves with its fourth season next month, it seems that they have landed a high-profile guest star. Ausiello Files is reporting that Burt Reynolds will guest star in a Season 4 episode of Burn Notice.
Reynolds will play an ex-CIA operative who was forced out of the spy biz, a character similar to Jeffrey Donovan's main character, Michael Westen, and is seen as a "cautionary tale" for Westen's character. Here's an except from the site's article.
"Things have not gone well for him since he left the spy service," explains series creator Matt Nix of Reynolds' character, Paul Anderson. "He's now working as a bartender under an assumed name, and he gets into trouble with some very nasty Russian guys.
"He's not precisely like Michael," adds Nix. "He's Michael should Michael succumb to some of the demons that haunt ex-spies."
