'Lost's' Nestor Carbonell Finds Role on 'Psych'

Grab your eyeliner and hang on for dear life, because 'Lost's' immortal mystery man Nestor Carbonell is heading back to the small screen.

Yes, according to Fancast, the man who played the 19th Centruy's original proto-goth Richard Alpert will be appearing on USA Network's 'Psych' for a multi-episode arc during the show's upcoming fifth season. Carbonell is slated to play Declan Rand, who despite the name is neither a 'Battlestar Galactica' pilot nor an extra on 'Legend of the Seeker,' but is rather "a criminal profiler who over the course of two episodes will shape up to be Shawn's professional – as well as romantic – rival."

Of course, coming off such a high-profile gig as 'Lost' may be a challenge for some actors, as some fans will likely have a hard time imagining Carbonell as anyone other than the iconic Others second banana. Luckily for Carbonell, he has plenty of experience off the island as well; besides recurring roles on shows like 'The Tick' and 'Suddenly Susan,' Carbonell also took a brief hiatus from 'Lost' in 2007 to co-star in the ill-fated Jimmy Smits vehicle 'Cane,' which may have flopped but at least reminded viewers that there's life off the island of Carbonell.
Still, considering this will be among the first TV gigs to feature an ex-Lostie, chances are this arc on 'Psych' will have quite a few more eyeballs on it than usual. Just how many of those eyes will be framed with thick black liner remains to seen.

The newest season of 'Psych' kicks off on July 14.
