Mira Sorvino Newest Detective On 'Psych'


Mira Sorvino

What might be the final season of USA’s ‘Psych’ will see the addition of actress Mira Sorvino. The show will feature her talent for a character arc spanning multiple episodes.

Sorvino and Allen in 'Mighty Aphrodite'Sorvino broke out as an actress in her 1995 role as a charming prostitute in Woody Allen’s ‘Mighty Aphrodite,’ for which she received an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress. Since then she has had dozens of film and television roles. Her TV movies, ‘Norma Jean & Marilyn’ and ‘Human Trafficking’ have earned her Golden Globe and Emmy nominations.

Sorivino’s character in ‘Psych,’ Betsy Brannigan, will have great range: Brannigan is the newest detective for Santa Barbara PD, and is a woman who seemingly has a split personality. According to Deadline, the character will go from sweet and cute, to a gun-toting bad-ass in an instant.

Sorvino can still pull off an adorable, heart-warming character, just as well as back when she did ‘Mighty Aphrodite’ and ‘Romy and Michele's High School Reunion.’ The wildness of Brannigan’s character description will be a fun side to see.

The 7th episode of season 8 is when Sorvino will make her debut. She will add to a cast for the season that already includes: Vinnie Jones, Olivia d'Abo and Kali Hawk. Cary Elwes and Kristy Swanson will also reprise roles.

What are your thoughts on adding Sorvino? Do you think she is the right choice for a character with these two extremes in personality?

You say, "The 7th episode of season 8 is when Sorvino will make her debut. She will add to a cast for the season that already includes: Vinnie Jones, Olivia d'Abo and Kali Hawk. Pierre Despereaux and Kristy Swanson will also reprise roles."

Pierre Despereaux is a character, not an actor. Cary Elwes plays the character of Pierre Despereaux.
