Give this guy a hug?

Mitch Pileggi as Harris Ryland on DALLAS episode Truth and Consequences.

I mean seriously, what was Ann’s problem? I’d have jumped his bones and cleared that desk if I were her. Sad but true.

Well, do we like Harris? I know I do. Mitch is playing a real snot again…but a loveable snot. I loved the part with wanting the hug from Ann (Brenda Strong). Impertinent to the last. Here’s hoping for a good long run for Harris Ryland. Cheers to Mitch for creating in three minutes another memorable character. I also have some HQ stills from Mitch’s first couple of episodes. Enjoy.

I finally have an airdate and episode synopsis for Mitch’s first episode on DALLAS. The episode is titled Truth And Consequences and will air next week July 04, 2012 in both Canada and the United States. The breakdown is this, more below the cut:

Truth And Consequences

With tension mounting between the newly married Christopher and Rebecca, family ties begin to unravel when the deed to Southfork is revealed. In order to thwart J.R.’s schemes, Ann seeks help from someone in her past, and Christopher decides it is time to fight dirty.

Looks like Ann (Brenda Strong) is seeking her ex, our own Mitch as Harris Ryland. I can hardly wait. I’ve been looking forward to this for weeks now. I’ll have the screencaps and clip up as soon as I can after the episode airs. Please be patient.

I just came across this with Brenda Strong who plays Ann Ryland Ewing on DALLS. It’s a small blurb where she talks about the old and new show.

“Oh boy … it’s a toss-up between J.R. — because Ann and J.R. definitely lock horns — and a new character, my ex-husband Harris Ryland played by Mitch Pileggi. He was definitely a rival worth sparring with.”

Mitch wasn’t on tonight’s premiere of the DALLAS continuation. I’m hoping we get to see him next week. Not much on his character but there is a write up on the TNT website on Ann Ewing (Brenda Strong). I’ve emboldened the parts that concern Mitch. More below the cut.

Ann Ewing

Ann Ewing is the third wife of Bobby Ewing. Introduced by mutual friend Sue Ellen, Bobby was instantly struck by Ann’s quiet strength and beauty. A consummate horse cutter, she fell in love with SouthFork Ranch. They quickly fell in love and married, and the pair settled in to SouthFork and began making it their own. A woman who can work a gun and ride a stallion, Ann fits right into the Ewing lineup of beautiful women who know their way around a ranch. Ann’s first marriage to big-time Texas transportation executive Harris Ryland, who is as sly as he is rich, continues to haunt Ann in her new life. But despite her past, she is a supportive wife to Bobby and has assumed her role as the new matriarch of SouthFork with dignity and grace.

This bodes well for Mitch. I like the description of him, sly as he is rich. I’m hoping the hype is well rewarded. I can’t stand to see Mitch once again underused and under appreciated. His track record in SUPERNATURAL, STARGATE: ATLANTIS, SONS OF ANARCHY and GREY’S ANATOMY are starting to make me think this guy will never get his rightful due. He’s not had a respectful and substantive role since playing Skinner on THE X-FILES. Oh how I long for Chris Carter.
