It Was So Good To See You: A Guide to Guest Stars (Week of 2/26) 

The last week of February didn’t disappoint with many great guest stars having appeared on a number of my favorite dramas.

Let’s start with the season finale of White Collar on Tuesday night that featured actresses Patricia Kalember and Judith Ivey as guest stars. Patricia played the woman in charge of Neal’s commutation interview while Judith appeared as a woman from Neal’s past who not only knew his father but also seemed to have been involved in Neal’s life as a young man.

Patricia Kalember

Patricia is best known for her work on the TV series Sisters as well as a recurring role on thirtysomething. More recently she has appeared in the TV shows Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and Blue Bloods as well as the box office films Signs and Limitless.

Judith Ivey

Meanwhile, Judith has a long resume of TV and film roles including The Devil’s Advocate, The Woman in Red and Flags of Our Fathers as well as roles in Designing Women, Will & Grace, Grey’s Anatomy and Big Love.

Laura Harring

That same night over on NCIS: Los Angeles, actress Laura Harring appeared as Kensi’s (Daniela Ruah) mom. Laura was named Miss USA in 1985 before turning to acting, catching a great deal of attention in her role in the David Lynch film Mulholland Drive and appearing in the daytime soap Sunset Beach. She went on to star in other films like The Punisher and John Q and guest starred in episodes of The Shield and Gossip Girl.

David Andrews

On Tuesday’s episode of Justified, actor David Andrews appeared the Harlan County sheriff who was bought off by drug dealer Quarles to go after Boyd Crowder (Walt Goggins). Andrews has a long resume of film and TV roles including Apollo 13, A Walk to Remember, Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, Hannibal and Fight Club. He also appeared in the mini-series From the Earth to the Moon and Band of Brothers and in TV roles for shows such as CSI: Miami, Brothers & Sisters, Drop Dead Diva, The Practice and JAG.

Courtney B. Vance

Later that night, actor Courtney B. Vance appeared in Revenge as the attorney representing Daniel Grayson (Josh Bowman). Most recently Vance has appeared in episodes of The Closer, ER and was a series regular on the short-lived series FlashForward as well as in the long-running Law & Order: Criminal Intent.

Lastly, on Friday night actor Titus Welliver appeared in the new episode of Grimm as a Steinadler – a type of bird-human hybrid who, at one point in time, had been engaged to Nick’s (David Guintoli) Aunt Marie.  Titus, of course, is best known for his recurring roles on Lost, The Good Wife, Supernatural, Sons of Anarchy and Deadwood. He has also appeared in the box office films The Town, Man on a Ledge, Gone Baby Gone and Assault on Precinct 13.

March is here meaning there will be more repeats than fresh new episodes. So it’s likely to be bleak in terms of great guest stars. What actors or actresses did you see on your favorite shows this past week? Please share.
