Okay, first things first – episode promotional stills are out, and Van’s in one! Check out the long hair!

Courtesy of Daemon’s TV:


And here’s the caption: Jane (Simon Baker, right) narrows down the list of suspects after a disgraced clothing designer, on the verge of a come back, is murdered. Also pictured are Griffin Matthews (far left), Van Hasis (center) and Riley Voelkel (near left), on THE MENTALIST, Thursday, Feb. 2 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

So, the good news: Van is not the corpse (which could make for a short-lived role – pun intended). This picture (which doesn’t at all look like Van to me), confirms it:


And more good news: it’s a big enough role to get him featured (and named) in a publicity caption. Woo hoo!

In the meantime, the above photo, plus much of the following information wouldn’t be possible without thanks in advance to the astute tweeter from the fuckyeah Van Hansis! tumblr who thought to ask THE MENTALIST writers for an air date. Thanks also to the folks who posted it at the lure_atwt LiveJournal and to Van’s fan’s who posted it on his Facebook page. And finally, thanks to VanHansis.com who screencapped the twitter conversation . So yeah, basically, I’m the last one to know.

So, rumor has it, that Van will appear on THE MENTALIST on 2nd February 2012 in an episode titled ‘Red Is the New Black.’ I say “leaked” because there’s no official confirmation from the network or the producers, but here’s how word got out:


But then again, we knew that “Van rocks.”

In the meantime, there is widespread confirmation on the internet that the Feb 2nd episode = episode 4×13 = ‘Red is the Next Black.’ There are also reports of this being a “fashion-themed” episode (given the title, that’s not a surprise).

There’s some minor spoilery info

From TheBakerBoy fansite (for series star Simon Baker), comes this tidbit:

The Mentalist Location Info

Filming next week at the upmarket Biltmore Hotel in Downtown LA (4.13 ‘Red is the New Black’ also filmed here) – 4.15 War of the Roses


And also, an episode synopsis:

The Mentalist 4.13 Red is the New Black

Jane and the CBI narrow down a suspect list as to who killed a disgraced clothing designer on the verge of a comeback. Meanwhile Agent Darcy continues her investigation into finding Red John. Airdate: 2nd February.

More info, including an episode pre-cap, show summary and details on where/how to watch coming up, closer to the air date…
