The hit USA Network detective comedy Psych starring James Roday and Dule Hill is gearing up for a sixth season this fall and that means big name guest stars. Past guests on the show include Cary Elwes, Danny Glover and Ally Sheedy who joined the main supporting cast including Corbin Bernsen, Timothy Olmundson and Maggie Lawson for a little fake pychic detective fun.
Season six guest stars announced this week, Wednesday, July 6th, include former Beverly Hills 90210 star Jason Priestley and former Chuck and Arrested Development star Tony Hale. In fact, the stars will share time in the same episode. EW reports that Priestley will play a Harley riding con-man who happens to attempt a con at the spa resort where James Roday‘s psychic detective Shawn and Maggie Lawson‘s Jules are staying.
Tony Hale plays another guest at the same resort, an importer/exporter who continually crosses Shawn and Jules’ path. Whether Hale’s character is part of the con or the subject of it, you’ll have to wait till the show airs this fall to find out.
Jason Priestley is no stranger to guest starring roles having booked splashy appearances in the past on My Name is Earl, Without a Trace and Medium. Priestley’s most recent regular television gig was playing a shady car salesman on the Canadian TV series Call Me Fitz. Tony Hale is also a frequent guest star. Since the end of Arrested Development in 2006 Hale has busied himself with guest shots on E.R, Law & Order, Medium, Community and Justified.
In other Psych news, the series is teaming with Legacy Games for an interactive PC game based on the series. Fans will be able to follow Shawn and Gus through a murder investigation and take part in solving crimes the Psych way. The Psych game will be available this fall via Legacy’s website and previews of the game will be available through the USA Network’s Character Arcade.
Psych returns for its sixth season on the USA Network this fall.
