Looks like Michael Westen (Jeffrey Donovan) is going to have a huge battle on his hands when Burn Notice makes its much-anticipated return from hiatus later this summer. Rather, he’s going to have to battle a huge man.

WWE’s Big Show (né Paul Donald Wight Jr.) will appear in the show’s fourth episode as Griffin Black, a low-IQ lowlife who works as a hired hand for more dangerous foes, EW has been told exclusively. The character description describes him as a 6’6″, 300-pound “monster of a man who looks like a grizzly bear that just escaped from the zoo” with a rap sheet as vast as it is troubling (robbery to indecent exposure).

The guest spot marks the wrestler’s second acting gig on the USA network. He previously appeared on last season of Royal Pains. Burn Notice returns June 23.

    well the Big Show is over 7 feet tall and 500 lbs so I think he more than covers that description

  • Michael


  • Daw Johnson

    That’s a worked height, Jonathan. In reality, he’s probably 6’8/6’9

    • Jess

      A “worked” height?

      Shove your moronic wrestling lingo up your behind, you useless piece of trash.

        No, his “worked” height was 7’2. Paul Wight is a legit 7 feet tall. Mark Calloway (aka The Undertaker) is 6’10 and Wight is definitely taller than him.

        What is so bad about his comment that you call him a useless piece of trash?

  • TopherGracesucks

    They should cast Topher Grace as a villain threatening to return to television

    • Rosey

    • Butch

      Great aritlce, thank you again for writing.

  • Lia

    He was sweet on Royal Pains. He’s getting range, he plays a jerk in Burn Notice from the sound of it.

    • Jonnie
