Ivan Sergei has landed a recurring role on The Mentalist, Entertainment Weekly reports.
Sergei's character, Gabe Mancini, is described by EW as "a tough, handsome agent who comes off as hotheaded at times but overall is a good guy." He will be one of three FBI agents joining the show's cast for its fifth season. (Rome's Polly Walker was previously cast as another of the three.)

You know, a lot of folks are making a big wahh-wahh about Katherine Heigls decision to remove herself from the Emmy race. Whatever. But to dump on the Greys Anatomy writers to excuse her less-than-award-worthy performance this season? Child, please. The day her sucking is the fault of the writers is the day I fit into clothes at Abercrombie & Fitch again. Besides, the whole roles for women gripe doesn't hold. Just looking at a few recent DVD releases, its clear that fun roles are out there...even if they arent tailor-made to win ungrateful, overpaid half-talents the Emmys they think they deserve just for showing up.Crossing Jordan Before the joy that is Bones, there was this cadaver-heavy crime drama and after what Im pretty sure was an excessive amount of time to wait, the first season of NBCs sexy coroner is finally here. And lets all just agree right now that Jill Hennessy needs to do more TV. Maybe she can hook up ...

Dr. Jordan Cavanaugh likes sticking her nose where it doesn't belong, and her obsession with solving murders takes her out of the lab and onto the streets. She often butts heads with police, and she steps on toes to recover evidence and solve cases, but there's always been one case that she's been unable to solve - the murder of her mother. All 23 episodes, presented in widescreen, are available on this 5-disc set. Special features include audio commentaries with Creator Tim Kring, Producer/Director Allan Arkush and composers Lisa Coleman and Wendy Melvoin; deleted scenes and interviews with the producers and cast members (4 separate interviews).

There's no doubt about it: New TV hits can bring old, short-lived shows to DVD.Just ask Taye Diggs, who's hot enough in Private Practice that his 2006 effort, Day Break, will hit stores at the end of this month. Or Kim Raver: Her old show, Third Watch, was in hugely high demand for a DVD release... but the studio didn't actually pull the trigger on getting it out (early last month) until Raver was cast in the new series Lipstick Jungle. Christina Applegate is doing well with Samantha Who?, so naturally more season-set releases are getting dug up for Married... with Children (Season 8 hits in a couple of weeks). Ditto for Party of Five, which finally returns to DVD later this month, thanks to Matthew Fox's current hit show, Lost. (Jennifer Love Hewitt's good-enough turn in Ghost Whisperer doesn't hurt there, either!)This phenomenon is not only limited to cast members, either. With Heroes having hit superpower levels in the ratings, is it any wonder that creator Tim Kring's previous s...

Angie Harmon in Women's Murder Club by Danny Feld/ABC
My loyalties are so divided on Friday nights. I want ABCs so-so new crime drama Womens Murder Club to do well enough to bring some much-needed eyeballs to the charming romantic comedy Men in Trees, which finally returns from a cruel nearly eight-month hiatus. With James Pattersons name as a selling point for Murder Club (though hes not writing this series any more than he appears to be penning half of the books that go out with co-writers names on his ubiquitous book jackets), the show certainly has a shot at commercial success, even on a night thats widely considered a graveyard. Remember: This same night, and this same time period (9 pm/ET), is where the original CSI launched to even less fanfare, and the rest is TV history.But I also dont want anything to take audience away from Murder Clubs competition, most notably NBCs ever-fragile Friday Night Lights, which offers another superb episode this week. Even if like many observe...
