Body of Proof Adds Mark Valley for Season 3

Body of Proof won't be back until January, but some casting news is already starting to roll in for the show's third season. The show has added a rather major new cast member, it was reported Saturday: Mark Valley will be joining in an important new role. 

Valley will play Detective Tommy Sullivan, a new main character on the series -- and Megan's (Dana Delaney) ex-boyfriend. He's tranferred to Philadelphia to win her back after their break-up -- which actress Delaney insists was his fault.

“Things between them are not good,” she told TVLine. “He was a bit of a rascal [when they dated].” The introduction of Valley's character will bring a flirtatious element to the series, not dissimilar to the dynamic between Booth and Brennan on FOX's Bones. 

This isn't the first cast shake-up for Body of Proof's third season. Actors Nicholas Bishop, John Carrol Lynch, and Sonja Sohn all departed from the series due to budget cuts required to keep the show on the air for a third season.

Valley is a veteran of television. He starred in FOX's action series Human Target for two seasons, and recurred throughout Fringe's first season. He starred in the recently cancelled legal series Harry's Law along with Kathy Bates.

Body of Proof will pick up its thirteen-episode third season on ABC in January 2013.

Don't watch Body of Proof, but Mark Valley was great in Harry's Law. Good to know he's got a new job, and BOP a good new cast member to look forward to :)

No No NO...this is a really good thing! Dana Delaney's charater can use a little humbling and second but most important, he is a sight for sore eyes...yum! good to see him back to work after the idiotic mistake of caneceling Harry's Law. Boneheads.
