Ed Begley Jr., Chris Vance, Chazz Palminteri
You'll see a couple new faces on Rizzoli & Isles next season — and lots of familiar ones as well. Chazz Palminteri, Ed Begley Jr. and Chris Vance are among the stars returning to the TNT drama for Season 3, TVGuide.com has learned.
Rizzoli & Isles boss on season finale: I wanted to leave them at odds
Palminteri, who plays Frank, the father of Jane (Angie Harmon), will return for the first time since the Season 1 finale with some news that upsets the family. Begley Jr.'s Dr. Pike will be back to lend Maura (Sasha Alexander) a hand, while Vance will reprise his role as Lt. Col. Casey Jones, Jane's old flame. Hmm, could we find Jane in a love triangle with him and Agent Dean (Billy Burke)?
Also returning are Jacqueline Bisset as Maura's adoptive mother Constance, John Doman as Maura's mob boss dad Paddy Doyle and Colin Egglesfield as Tommy, Jane's brother.
