dean norris gi 'The Mentalist' teams up with 'Breaking Bad's' Dean Norris“The Mentalist” will be getting a little help from Hank Schrader later this season — or at least from the man who plays him.

Dean Norris, who plays DEA agent Hank on “Breaking Bad,” will guest-star on the CBS series later this fall, Zap2it has learned. He’s set to film his episode next week, and it will likely air sometime in November.

Norris will be playing the head of a narcotics task force — seems appropriate, no? — who crosses paths with Patrick Jane (Simon Baker) and Co. during a murder investigation.

“The Mentalist” will be the second CBS crime drama to feature Norris this season. He’s also appearing on “CSI: NY” in October as an internal affairs detective.

“Breaking Bad,” meanwhile, has just two more episodes left in its fourth season.
