Bruno will play Lt. Jason Paul Dean, a freelance mercenary with ties to the private military company operated by Col. Merton Bell (Robert Patrick), an enemy of Gibbs (Mark Harmon). As we first reported, Dean is an imposing, edgy and dangerous former Army Ranger who was highly decorated before a screw-up in Afghanistan led to his dishonorable discharge — and he's not at all afraid to kill when necessary...
The last new episode scheduled for 2007 reminded me of a couple of early 1970s films the brilliant The Conversation and the more obscure and not as good if still interesting Report to the Commissioner which was based on a novelas well as seeming to mark the end of Aya Sumikas role on the series though we can hope otherwiseIt begins with a fairly unexceptional mornings business at the FBI offices as Agents Reeves Diane Farr and Sinclair Alimi Ballard prepare to go pick up a suspect less routinely Liz Warner Sumika informs her boss and ex Don Eppes Rob Morrow that shes taking the opportunity to be temporarily reassigned to another unit in the Los Angeles office Eppes is surprised and conflicted but has little time to deal with that since in the lobby of the FBI building a man has charged in brandishing a gun and shooting an agent before charging into an elevator and taking a civilian hostage Sinclair exchanges himself for the hostage over Reevess ob
Dylan and Chris Bruno, Numbers
They may not get along on screen but for brothers Chris and Dylan Bruno, every opportunity to work together is a good one. This Friday, Chris, best known as Sheriff Bannerman on The Dead Zone, guest-stars on Numbers (9 pm/ET, CBS) as SWAT captain Tim King, who rushes in to save the day when David (Alimi Ballard) is taken hostage inside the FBI building. TVGuide.com talked to Dylan about sibling rivalry and the college romance that connects his older brother to CBS' math procedural.
TVGuide.com: How did you rope your brother into doing this?Dylan Bruno: That's funny. The producers and I had all been joking around, "Oh, we've got to get your brother down here at some point," and there were a couple of times where they tho
Another fine episode and one that actually builds in part on the last one a rarity so far this seasonWe begin with the investigation of a possible suicide but more probably murder a middle-aged man who turns out to be a US attorney from the Midwest has fallen from a building in a scruffy part of Los Angeles Hes also a team leader in a real-life scavenger hunt that has grown out of a multi-user online battle game called Primacy The prize for the winning team in the real-life game is 1 million which seems motive enough and certainly there is no lack of suspects including members of the attorneys team who have left markers at the murder scene from previous visits Megan takes the lead on this case but her secret weapon she soon learns is Amita who has been playing Primacy for years An obsessed gamer who has been using fake identities to create his own team and who has killed his one actual coconspirator has been intimidating and harrassing other teams to fo
Quite a packed episode this Veteran scriptwriter Don McGill and whoever else mightve had a hand in it managed to get at least an episode and a halfs worth of incident in wrapped around solving the central case but with plenty of little nudges toward resolving aspects of the longer arcs within the series some of those resolved or at least dealt with perhaps a little too quickly Thanks to any number of crime dramas we mightve seen before ranging from Grand Guignol and its heirs the weirder edge of film noir and contemporary English suspensehorror films and German krimis and Italian gialli and on up through that other film with a digit in its title Se7en and its contemporaries and all the crime fiction that helped to inspire them this episodes fanatic is a familiar type One might even have grown accustomed to his sort from the other procedurals and policeinvestigator shows This is where spoilers will become more explicitBut what was most remarkable about

Question: When you chat with your buddy [Numbers exec producer] Cheryl Heuton again, can you please pass along that the finale was awesome, and ask her if all of the Season 2 cast will be back? Also, will Dylan Bruno be upped to series regular? Thank you!
Answer: Your wish is my command, Heii. "Dylan Bruno will be back, and he will be a regular next year," Heuton shared via e-mail. "We love our Dylan — though I cannot promise that his fans will get their wish that he appear shirtless. [And] it's a bit of a spoiler, but yes, all our regulars will be back next year. The spoiler being that Navi Rawat will return in the role of Amita. That's the one question we left hanging. We ended the season with Amita trying to decide whether or not to take a job at Har
