Exclusive: ‘The Closer’ High On ‘Weeds’ Star

Posted on May 21, 2011


Bad news? The Closer‘s Brenda Leigh Johnson (Kyra Sedgwick) has another killer on the prowl. Good news? A Weeds alumni is about to add another role to their resume!

Sources confirm to me that Weeds star (and recurring Parks and Recreation actor) Andy Milder will guest-star in an upcoming episode of  TNT’s hit show The Closer. Milder–who will appear in the third episode of the upcoming final season–will play Owen Doyle, a surly and exhausted man who tops the list of suspects in a major crimes/F.B.I. investigation.

In the same episode (scheduled to air in late July), Lt. Provenza (G.W. Bailey) and Lieutenant Andy Flynn (Anthony John Denison) once again get their focus in the spotlight. When it turns out the hilarious duo were the last ones to see a victim alive, it’s revealed that they may be doing a little moonlighting for a lawyer on the side.

The Closer‘s seventh season premieres July 11th on TNT.
