'Burn Notice' exclusive: Jennifer Esposito goes gunning for Michael

Jenniferespositosam_lDon’t panic. Samantha Who? hasn’t been canceled. But it has wrapped production for the season, which has freed Jennifer Esposito up to moonlight on cable’s hottest show.

Sources confirm to me exclusively that Esposito has booked a multi-episode arc on Burn Notice as Michael’s (Jeffrey Donovan) latest arch nemesis. Her character, Michelle Paxon, is a Miami PD detective who becomes obsessed with uncovering the truth about Michael.

Esposito will debut early into BN‘s third season, which started shooting last week and is scheduled to premiere in June.

    ahh, can’t wait! I’ve been wondering when Miami PD will start noticing that things around him keep exploding…

  • Jennf

    Awesome!!! After the season finale I am so pumped for the next season of Burn Notice. Now we know who he will have to keep off his back while dealing with his past coming back to haunt him…

    I love Burn Notice. And I like Esposito who I find strangely hot.

  • michael

    Oh, boy, what will Fee think?

    Can’t wait to see her. She does such an amazing job on Samantha Who that I’ve forgotten how she acts when she’s not playing a boozy, narcissistic, airhead.

    Its about time that the Miami pd starts to take notice that something is going on with Michael and that crime in the city is probably down a few percent. This is going to be interesting

    I love this show and I hope season 3 is as good as the previous two.

  • Allie

    this is going to be really awesome!! i loved seeing jennifer esposito guest star on “rescue me”, so i think she’ll be great on “burn notice”! i bet there will be some jealousy between jennifer esposito’s character and fi! this will be interesting, but i can’t wait!

  • Mandy

    Coolio. Can’t wait.

  • To JS…

    Yeah, she’s fun!

    this makes me so excited! i LOVE her in Samantha Who. Her character might be top five favorites on tv (along with Barney Stinson, Ben, Sam Axe, Nikki Grant, and Janitor), and Burn Notice is top five favorite shows. So this is marriage made in heaven!

    I’m so excited for the third season, particularly as the second season ended so strongly. Thanks for the casting scoop!

  • Carol

    This just tics me off (and tics is not the word I wanted to use). Here’s an idea: why not hire an actress WHO DOESN’T ALREADY HAVE AN F-ING JOB?!
