According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sons of Anarchy actor LaMonica Garrett has signed on to guest star on the upcoming season of Justified. In the third episode, he will be playing a man named Andre that has an inflated opinion of his prowess with the ladies and attempts to pick up Rachel…before admitting to being a thief.
Although it looks to be only a one episode deal, it’ll be nice to have a little more screen time for Rachel, even if it’s something a bit light. Though she might be in a fair amount of the episodes physically, she very rarely gets a plot line of her own, which can be a bit frustrating because when she does get time, she’s an enjoyable character. With Justified’s well-defined (and generally rather dry) sense of humor, it could be end up being a fun subplot that balances out a heavier main story, helping the episode as a whole.
In addition to his role as Deputy Sheriff Cane on the FX biker drama, Garrett has appeared on the likes of Mike & Molly, Political Animals, and NCIS. Additional guests for the upcoming season of Justified include comedian Patton Oswalt and ER alum Ron Eldard, all of whom will be following in the footsteps of Emmy winner Margo Martindale, Neal McDonough, and Mykelti Williamson, among others. The seasonal “big bad” has yet to be announced, however; we don’t know yet who Raylan will be working against, but the show has had three strong central villains and a fourth seems like a likely occurrence.
The fourth season of Justified premieres in January on FX. You can watch the first teaser for the season here.
Are you excited for the next season of Justified? Who do you think the “big bad” of the season will be? Is there anything in particular that you’d like to see happen down in Harlan this season?
