Look who’s playing a bad dude now! EW has learned that Eric Mabius (Ugly Betty) has been cast in an upcoming episode of NBC’s Chase. He’ll play Justin Tate, a cop-turned-fugitive who uses his law enforcement know-how to lure innocent prey. He’s also the first fugitive clever enough to elude the U.S. marshals – which keeps Annie Frost (Kelli Giddish) up at night!

Will our heroine catch him? You’ll have to find out in January, when Mabius’ episode airs. In case you’ve forgotten, Mabius played the beloved Daniel Meade for four years on ABC’s Betty. Before that, he starred in The L Word and Eyes.

Chase, which also stars Cole Hauser, Jesse Metcalfe and Amaury Nolasco, received a full season pickup from NBC. The drama will begin airing on Wednesdays starting Jan. 12.

    They are actually much better at casting and writing the villians on this show than the main characters so I look forward to it!

      I completely agree (with the exception of Annie)!!

    Daniel Meade as the villain….hmmm I’ll look forward to seeing Eric play a bad guy & seeing him again in something since UB ended

    Annie and the villains make the show for me. They have gotten some great guests to play the fugitives–Jennifer Johnson was my favorite so far. I get excited at the end of each episode when they give a clip of next weeks episode. I love finding out who Annie is going to chase next. I look forward to this episode.

    I watched a full episode a couple of weeks ago–the fugitive guy posing as a US Marshall and killing people–and thought this show is for morons.
