The Mentalist centers around Patrick Jane (Simon Baker) a man who uses his powers of observation and knowledge of the human animal as he works as a consultant / investigator to solve crimes attached to a unit of the California Bureau of Investigation (CBI). His methods are not always transparent and this sometimes causes misunderstandings with his boss Teresa Lisbon (Robin Tunney).
Josie Loren Cast On 'The Mentalist' Season Seven The Mentalist is adding to its ranks in Season Seven, casting Make It or Break It star Josie Loren in a major recurring role. Loren will play Michelle Vega, the newest addition to Patrick Jane’s FBI crew. She’s a rookie fresh out of the FBI Academy, eager, ambitious and hungry to learn. She’s never heard of Jane, knows nothing of his methods or past, and casts a skeptical eye on his unorthodox, rule breaking ways. The Mentalist is slated to return to CBS’ schedule at midseason.
