According to The Examiner‘s website, Mitch is going to be guest starring on this new FOX program. More below the cut:

Mitch Pileggi of ‘X-Files,’ ‘Supernatural’ guest starring on ‘The Finder’

By Meredith Jacobs, Queens Primetime TV Examiner

Bones is only going to be airing six episodes when it finally begins its seventh season in November on Fox 5 in Queens Thursdays at 9PM, and from there, the spin-off, The Finder, starring Geoff Stults, will take over its time slot. An actor who is no stranger to television is going to be guest starring on the new series.

According to Give Me My Remote, Mitch Pileggi, who played Skinner on The X-Files and more recently Samuel Campbell on Supernatural and Larry Jennings on Grey’s Anatomy, is going to be guest starring on The Finder. There are some character details out as well for the role he’ll begin filming next week:

“Pileggi…will play a former cop-turned-death row inmate who reaches out to Walter to help him with something very important.”

What could Pileggi’s character want with Walter Sherman? The Finder has cast new characters since the episode that aired as part of Bones season 6. Saffron Burrows isn’t returning, but fortunately Geoff Stults and Michael Clarke Duncan are. Stults played the role of the paranoid, quirky Walter perfectly, and it’s hard not to love Duncan as his poetry-reciting legal advisor bodyguard. This latest casting news sounds like it should be just what the show needs, along with the possibility ofBones cast members crossing over and David Boreanaz slated to direct an episode.

The Bones spinoff, The Finder, premieres this midseason on Fox 5 in Queens. What do you think of the latest casting news?

So far there’s no word as to the name of Mitch’s character, but it sounds good. I truly do hope that this isn’t a one-note character. I’m really getting tired of shows casting Mitch then giving him substandard material to work with. I really would love it if he had a part that would give him the chance to be something else other than some flakey ditz’s father, a thug, or some other role that won’t allow Mitch to show us what he can do. I would love it if he got his own series. something like “Deadwood” or “Generation Kill” that would give him the broadest possible ability to show us what he can do.

I also wanted to let you know I’m working on a new layout for the site. I’m hoping I have something before the Mayan end date.

I know there’s been no updates since Mitch’s birthday, but with him officially off SUPERNATURAL and only one project in the pike, there really isn’t much to report. The new project Mitch has done is a made for television movie called Mega Cyclone being produced through the Syfy channel. So far there’s not a lot on the film with the exception of the IMDB page. When I have some news I’ll post. I’m also working on getting the SUPERNATURAL section complete. I have a lot of stills and behind-the-scenes images still to put up plus the video from the last few episodes Mitch was in. Bear with me. I’ve also replaced the animation in the Selected Image in the sidebar. The animation is a totally gratutious frame-by-frame of Mitch from his time as Assistant Director Walter Skinner in E4X22 Zero Sum from his THE X-FILES days. Hope you like it.

I was able to get the screencaps for Mitch’s most recent appearance as Samuel Campbell on SUPERNATURAL done up. It took some time, but they’re good and they’re here. I won’t be doing the clip until tomorrow. I’m awfully tired and still not up to long time in front of the computer. I’m still on antibiotics and pain killers. Hope you understand the drawn out way I’ve done this. I’ll edit tomorrow with the clip. Thanks.

Hi guys. I just wanted to post to let you know I’ll have clips and screencaps up later tomorrow or at the latest, Sunday. Right now I’m battling a really bad viral case of Strep Pharyngitis and I’m on pain killers and antibiotics and not feeling entirely too good tonight. I’m also very tired. I do promise to try to get things updated before Monday. Please understand.

Thanks, Dianne

I’d like to take this time to wish all of Mitch’s fans a happy and healthy 2011. It’s hard to believe it’s 2011. Of course we’re all looking forward to 28 January when SUPERNATURAL makes its return and we get to see more of Mitch. Take care all. Be safe.

Yours, Dianne
