According to Deadline, actor Gary Dourdan, last seen on CSI, will have a recurring role playing a reclusive retired civil rights attorney who becomes smitten with Mary Jane when he agrees to an interview with her.
Mary Jane, played by actress Gabrielle Union, is expected to have a number of potential suitors next season, including a rumored female admirer.
This role may be played by actress Salli Richardson-Whitfield, who is also joining the show for a five episode arc.
“Being Mary Jane” became BET’s highest rated show ever and ended its first season on a high note, garnering just over 5 million viewers for its season finale.
The second season is expected to kick off in November.
