TNT’s The Closer continues to book new faces for its final season. EW has exclusively learned that Sunset Beach and Eve alum Jason George will guest star in the show’s winter finale, which is slated to air Dec. 26. This comes shortly after the news that Fred Willard will appear in the show’s 100th episode on Dec. 5, and Elizabeth Perkins made a deal to guest star in the show’s Dec. 19 episode.

George will play Marvin Evans, a successful businessman with old ties to the neighborhood where Turell Baylor was brutally murdered last season, in the episode titled “Silent Partner.” Brenda (Kyra Sedgwick) goes to Evans seeking help to solve a gang murder that may be connected to Turell’s demise. The Closer‘s winter finale is Dec. 26, but the show won’t officially wrap up until the summer of 2012. Major Crimes, a potential spin-off of the series — coming out of those summer episodes — is still a possibility.

In addition to his regular spots on Beach and Eve, George has appeared in several ABC series, everything from Eli Stone and Off the Map to Grey’s Anatomy and Desperate Housewives.

    I loved Sunset Beach, but Jason George has been a regular on sooooo many more shows since its cancellation — over 10 years ago. Why is that his calling card?

    • Kik

      I know! I never see anyone credit Sunset Beach for anything anymore.

      He used to date my daddy.

    I could have sworn this was the last season of “The Closer.” And yet, it won’t end until the summer of 2012.

  • Sarah

    Major Crimes is just a potential spin-off?? I thought it was a sure thing. And wasn’t this guy on Grey’s Anatomy and Off the Map?

  • tbh

    It is the last season. They are just stretching it as much as they can.

      yay!! Jason is talented, attractive and a really nice guy in general. I’m happy hollywood is taking notice.

  • Lori

    I suspect those “extra” shows in 2012 will have reduced Kyra Sedgwick (Brenda) in them, which is a shame and I hope I’m wrong. But it seems they will try to transition from The Closer to Major Crimes

    I hope ‘Lori’ is wrong too, but Hollywood operates by one rule: greed. If promoting a new show is the agenda, less Ms Sedgwick. Talk about ‘Major Crimes’. But we get a little more of The Closer which makes my Christmas. It was rare to see such stellar work on the tube–Ms Sedgwick is and remains the underrated rare bird of immense gifts. I will miss the show terribly, and her most of all. Brava!
