Bernard will play a ruthless new nemesis for Horatio Caine (David Caruso) in a recurring role for a season-long arc, reports TV Guide. Bernard will debut in episodes slated for late October.
And there’s a wealth of opportunity in the juicy part:
“We’re going to slowly position Horatio in opposition to a very subtle, but powerful, political patriarch,” co-executive producer Barry O’Brien tells TV Guide. “He’s kind of a Donald Trump meets the Kennedy family. …There will be a very high-octane relationship between the two. A hero is as heroic as his opposition is deadly, so we’re really going to go there with this character.”
The new season of “CSI: Miami” returns Sunday, Sept. 25 at 10/9c on CBS.
