Everybody’s favorite Firefly Companion and Homeland refugee is returning to CBS’ The Mentalist.

Morena Baccarin is coming back to the veteran crime drama for a guest star appearance in the third episode of season seven. She’ll reprise her role as sexy sociopath Erika Flynn, who previously manipulated and seduced Patrick Jane (Simon Baker).

Here’s the set-up: “Jane teams up with Erika Flynn in Beirut, Lebanon, where he and Lisbon have gone at the request of the CIA to take down an international weapons dealer. Erika has agreed to help Jane and the CIA in exchange for a pardon on the murder charges she’s still facing and the chance to return to the U.S. But as always Erika has agendas of her own, one of which may, or may not, be inserting herself between Jane and Lisbon.”

The Mentalist will return to CBS in midseason.

Firefly fans, rejoice! In case you weren’t aware, a Firefly video game is currently in production by Quantum Mechanix Inc. They announced this morning that the entire cast, Morena included, will be lending their voices to the game.

They posted the following on their Facebook:

Nathan, Alan, Adam, Sean and Ron have already recorded their parts, and Morena, Jewel and Summer are on the schedule and will be in studio soon. And we’re currently working with Gina to find a time for her to record.

There’s an epic new story they’ll be helping tell (and when we say “epic”, we mean “EPIC”) and sidequests where you might just run into a familiar face.

In addition to the BDHs, Michael Fairman has joined the cast to reprise his role as Niska. We’ve already recorded Michael and his performance was nothing short of bone-chilling. Look forward to taking some jobs from Niska, if you dare!

The game will be released in Spring of 2015. Find out more information here. Until then, here is the game’s first trailer.

via The Hollywood Reporter:

The animated indie, directed by Jason Axinn, centers on a young woman (Dani Lennon) who must defeat her powerful, evil father in order to save herself and her siblings.

Baccarin has been cast as Gamemaster, an otherworldly entity who entraps hapless humans into diabolical conflicts while her species gambles on the outcome. Wise plays Cyrus, the dying, wealthy and embittered industrialist who gathers his family, ostensibly to discuss his estate — but what he really has in mind for them is something else entirely.

Moseley will voice Cyrus’ twisted henchman, who believes he’s still a charmer despite having survived a terrible and disfiguring accident.

From Coverage Ink Films, the horror project is currently in production and eyeing release in early 2015. Jim Cirile and Tanya C. Klein wrote the script and will executive produce the film, which is produced by Paige Barnett and Cindi Rice.

Baccarin plays Jessica Brody on the hit series Homeland, and has also appeared on The Good Wife and The Mentalist. Her upcoming films include Paul Feig’s Spy and indie The Red Tent. She’s repped by UTA, Seven Summits Pictures & Management and Jackoway Tyerman.

Another bible-themed longform project is heading to the small screen. Lifetime is going into production with The Red Tent, a two-night miniseries adaptation of the best-selling novel by Anita Diamant published in 1997. The White Queen star Rebecca Ferguson, Minnie Driver (About A Boy) and Homeland alumna Morena Baccarin lead the cast of the four-hour mini, produced by Sony TV and executive produced by Paula Weinstein. Co-starring in the project, which begins production this month in Morocco, are Game Of Thrones‘ Iain Glen and Will Tudor as well as Debra Winger. The Red Tent tells the story of Dinah (Ferguson), the daughter of Leah and Jacob, who is only briefly referenced in the Old Testament. The miniseries begins with Dinah’s happy childhood spent inside the red tent where only the women of her tribe are allowed to gather and share the traditions and turmoil of ancient womanhood. Told through Dinah’s eyes, the mini recounts the story of her mothers Leah (Driver), Rachel (Baccarin), Zilpah and Bilhah, the four wives of Jacob (Glen), and his courtship of them. Dinah goes on to marry a prince and fall out with her murderous brother Joseph (Tudor). Winger portrays Rebecca, Jacob’s mother. “The Red Tent brings premium and popular elements to a unique and timeless story,” said Lifetime EVP Rob Sharenow. “It perfectly articulates our vision for Lifetime as the destination for epic movie events.” Lifetime recently shared with History and A&E the two-night miniseries Bonnie & Clyde. Roger Young (Law & Order) will direct The Red Tent from a script by Elizabeth Chandler (The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants) and Anne Meredith (Secrets of Eden).

The Red Tent mini has been in development at Lifetime since 2011. Its green light coincides with a great interest in longform TV project with biblical themes following the the blockbuster success of The Bible miniseries on Lifetime sibling History and its feature offshoot Son Of God. A Bible sequel is in the works at NBC, National Geographic Channel has mini Killing Jesus coming up, WGN America has greenlighted 10-part event series Ten Commandments, and Fox just put in development Nazareth, an event series about Jesus’ formative years.
