The Mentalist's Patrick Jane is about to get a (perhaps unwanted) blast from the past.
Former Lie to Me and The Practice star Kelli Williams will guest-star on the CBS drama's upcoming fourth season, TVGuide.com has learned exclusively. She will play Beth Flint, a woman who once hired Jane (Simon Baker) during his days as a pretend psychic...
Lie To Me
Lie to Me's third season finale Monday and the uncertainty of its future left fans hungry for more — more criminal psychology, more romantic tensions and more of Tim Roth talking with his mouth full.
In the Fox drama, the Lightman Group specializes in interpreting microexpressions and body language, and leader Cal Lightman (Roth) is an expert at manipulating his own body's language to fluster and confuse people into inadvertently revealing their true motives. Executive producers Alexander Cary and David Graziano explain that Roth deliberately created Lightman's odd food mannerisms as part of his character's work strategy.
Lie to Me
Lie to Me's Season 3 finale dares to ask the question: What if Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg had killed one of his closest friends and partners?

Truthfully, the episode has nothing to do with Facebook, but you can't help but notice the parallels between it and the Oscar-nominated film, The Social Network, which explores the complicated personal and legal entanglements behind the founding of the most popular website on the Internet. In Lie to Me's tale, Nikita's Ashton Holmes plays Zach Morstein, the wunderkind co-creator of a popular dating application who Dr. Lightman (Tim Roth) fingers as the lead suspect in the murder of Zach's best friend and company co-founder.

"I got my SAG card doing the first ever commercial for Dasani bottled water.

Tim Roth, Lie to Me
When Lie to Me returns for its third season, Cal Lightman and his team of lie-detecting scientists will be freed from their ties to Ben Reynolds and the FBI.
But while the show's producers made that decision to allow Lightman (Tim Roth) to take on different kinds of cases, will the lack of checks and balances prove dangerous for the Lightman Group?
Lie to Me: End of the line for Lightman and Reynolds
"We are leaning into Lightman's general conflict with power and authority," executive producer Alexander Cary tells TVGuide.com. "In the first episode of Season 3, he goes too far. He sails extremely close to the wind...
The upcoming third season of Lie to Me promises to be edgier and grittier than ever. So it makes sense that the new cast photo — which you can see after the jump — would follow suit.
Lie to Me: End of the line for Lightman and Reynolds
Season 3 finds Lightman (Tim Roth) and his team working above the law after severing its ties with the FBI. But, as also hinted in the photo, Lightman's rogue attitude will dramatically test the relationships and dynamics of The Lightman Group. In particular, a wedge is driven between Lightman and Foster (Kelli Williams), creating devastating consequences...
Tim Roth and Mekhi Phifer
The second-season finale of Lie to Me doesn't play as your typical cliffhanger, but it does bring about some big changes for the show. Chief among them: The departure of Mekhi Phifer's FBI agent Ben Reynolds from the series.
Executive producers and Season 3 showrunners Alex Cary and David Graziano made the decision to broaden their stories and character development.
Lie to Me taps new showrunner
"It hobbled us a bit," Cary tells TVGuide.com of the FBI's watchdog attachment to the Lightman Group. "It put Lightman [Tim Roth] into the sort of one-note position of having to roll his eyes. It became unsurprising, because we knew he was going to go and do whatever he wanted to do anyway."
"Lightman is like that kid in the back of class who used to sit with his feet up on the back of the desk and snarl at the teacher. He subverts authority and the FBI represents that," Graziano adds...

What's coming up for Danny and Lindsay for the end of this season of CSI: NY? — Christina
ADAM: I know what executive producer Pam Veasey told me: "The season finale will involve a big, big event for Danny and Lindsay. I'll just leave it at that." Hmm, well, since Shane Casey is most likely involved, should fans of the couple be worried about them? "Yes," Veasey says. "It's something that will make them go, 'Oh my goodness!' That will be their response."

Kelli Williams, Lie to Me
Lie to Me made some behind-the-scenes changes this season, translating into on-screen changes for Kelli Williams' character, Gillian Foster.
Shawn Ryan tells the truth about reinventing Lie to Me
The 39-year-old former star of The Practice says the addition of executive producer Shawn Ryan and a focus on character-based stories has helped the series, which premiered as a midseason replacement in January. Williams says she welcomes the changes, which have opened numerous possibilities for Foster's future.
"Foster was in a much heavier place at the end of last year with her marriage falling apart," Williams says. "This season there's a little bit more levity in the office. And since I'm no longer with my husband, there are a lot of places they can take Foster."
For one thing, the writers chose to make Foster less of a stickler...
