'Burn Notice' Recruits 'The Wire' Alum for Guest Starring Gig (Exclusive)
Burn Notice is heating up.
The USA Network drama has recruited Chad Coleman, who played Dennis "Cutty" Wise on The Wire , and Telemundo actress Angelica Celaya for guest-starring gigs in upcoming episodes of the Matt Nix series, The Hollywood Reporter has learned exclusively.
Coleman will appear in the 10th episode as Brady Pressman, a devoted and noble CIA operative who was the leader of a botched operation that resulted in terrible consequences. Hellbent on making amends, Brady is a man on the mission, trying to make things right and prove he's still a worthy agent.
Celaya (Gabriel, Perro amor) is set to make an appearance in the ninth episode as the sexy and charming Angela Flores, the girlfriend of an engineer who might be selling weapons technology on the black market. The CIA uses her as an asset to get close to the engineer, but the job might require more patience and professionalism than she can handle.
Repped by Talent Works, Coleman also appeared in Fox's I Hate My Teenage Daughter as Gary. Celaya is repped by Candu Management.
Burn Notice airs at 9 p.m. Thursdays.
