Who Was That Guy In the Hoodie in The Mentalist Premiere?


His hard to pronounce name: Zeljko Ivanek.

And if he seems familiar it’s because you recognize this Emmy award-winning actor’s face from over 20 years of random (and usually villainous) recurring roles on hit shows like Frasier, Ally McBeal, Lost, 24, The Practice, Oz, Bones, ER, NYPD Blue, CSI, Law & Order, The West Wing, Cold Case, Damages, The Mentalist and beginning early next year, Heroes.

He’ll play a character called “The Hunter” who will be introduced in the show’s fourth volume, Fugitives. Read more about that here.

So, now you know.
