About the Show

THE MENTALIST stars Golden Globe Award nominee Simon Baker as Patrick Jane, an independent consultant with the California Bureau of Investigation (CBI), who has a remarkable track record for solving serious crimes by using his razor sharp skills of observation.

Within the Bureau, Jane is notorious for his blatant lack of protocol and his semi-celebrity past as a psychic medium, whose paranormal abilities he now admits he feigned. Jane's role in cracking a series of tough high-profile cases is greatly valued by his fellow agents. However, no-nonsense Senior Agent Teresa Lisbon openly resists having Jane in her unit and alternates between reluctantly acknowledging Jane's usefulness and blasting him for his theatrics, narcissism and dangerous lack of boundaries.

Lisbon's team includes agents Kimball Cho, Wayne Rigsby and rookie member Grace Van Pelt, who all think Jane's a loose cannon but admire his charm and knack for clearing cases.

Hey, I'm Lila and i am 14 years old. I have wished to be a part of The Mentalist since it first came out. I have wanted to be an actress basically all my life, and feel I would fit the role perfectly. The Mentalist is the best TV show I have ever seen, and it would be my dream to take part in it. I have been going to acting school since i was about 5 years old. I would be more than thrilled to be in this show.
Thank You,

Hi I am Leah and I am 13 years old. I have always wanted to be an actress and I really think that if someone gave me a chance then I could do it. I love The Mentalist and all the characters too. I don't go to acting school exactly but I do go to a performing arts school/college which is sort of a normal school. All my drama teachers think that because I am shy then I cant do a big part but when they give me a chance they all say they think I have potential. I was going to go for an audition for some disney shows but they were too far away but to be on The Mentalist I would go anywhere in the world. Most people say I should wait till I grow up to audition for TV shows and movies but like I said, if someone gave me a chance Im sure I could do it. It would be the chance of a lifetime to be on a show as good as The Mentalist and if you gave me a chance I wouldnt let you down. Thankyou.

My husband and I think you should do a show with all the characters depicting the Adams Family. Robin would be an awesome Morticia, Cho could be Gomez, Patrick as Uncle Fester and the tall agent as Lurch, as examples. We think it would be a really funny and interesting episode.

Hi I'm Madie. I'm 17 years old and I have wanted to become an actress for a very long time but I don't know where or how to start. I have been in my school plays and I also am the student lead for advertising the school plays and musicals.I know I am sounding just like anyone else here, but I would really love to be an actress. My favorite television show is, and always will be, The Mentalist, and I would love to make any kind of appearance on the show. I am a good actress and I don't act for the money, but for the experience because acting allows me to become someone else and forget about my regular life. I feel like I would bring a lot to the show (even though it is so amazing already). I have been searching for weeks for somewhere to get more information on auditioning and acting so it would mean the world to me if someone replied. Thanks!

For the finale series of the mentalist, the best happy ending would be if it was found that red John only murdered Patrick's wife and kidnapped Charlotte and staged her murder. Then Patrick finds Charlotte and kills red John and Patrick and Lisbon get together. The perfect ending putting the mentalist at rest and making the tv series memorable. Writers should take this into consideration. Best ending
