Terry Kinney has signed on to join the cast of the U.S. television drama The Mentalist, CBS announced. Starting this fall, the former Oz and The Unusuals star will play the recurring role of Agent Sam Bosco, a seemingly flat-footed policeman with a deceptively sharp intelligence, the network said in a news release.
