'Burn Notice' Sneak Peek: 'True Blood' Alum James Frain Guest Stars (Exclusive Video)

He plays the powerful head of a pharmaceutical company in Thursday's episode.

True Blood's Franklin Mott is back to no good -- this time, on Burn Notice.

James Frain, who appeared on the HBO drama as the trouble-brewing vampire in its third season, guest stars on the USA Network spy series this Thursday and The Hollywood Reporter has an exclusive sneak peek of the episode, "Eye for an Eye."

Jesse (Cody Bell) and Fiona (Gabrielle Anwar) are hired on a surveillance job for a powerful pharmaceutical company, but obviously there's much more to the establishment than meets the eye. That's where Frain comes in.

He plays the powerful owner of said company responsible for several medical breakthroughs, running his business with top-notch security and going to great lengths to protect the company's secrets.

Even after the short run of NBC's The Cape, Frain continues to play characters with an edge.

Burn Notice airs Thursday at 9 p.m. on USA.
