The spin-off to TNT’s soon-to-depart drama The Closer has booked Jon Wellner for an upcoming guest spot, I have learned exclusively. In “The Shame Game,” the seventh episode airing in the show’s debut season, Wellner will play Craig Willis, a 28-year-old public defender who does not find the questioning of his client amusing. His episode is slated to air in October.

Wellner was recently promoted to series regular on the CBS staple CSI. He’s portrayed toxicoligst Henry Andrews for the past seven seasons.
