Sterling K. Brown Joins "PERSON OF INTEREST" As Taraji P. Henson's Love Interest

Person of Interest Enlists Army Husband to Woo Detective Carter

October 29, 2012

Sterling K. Brown, who for six seasons has played Army Wives spouse Roland Burton, is joining CBS’ Person of Interest in a recurring role.

Per our sister site Deadline, Brown will play Cal Beecher, a no-nonsense narcotics detective who will evolve into a potential love interest for Taraji P. Henson’s Detective Carter. TVLine has learned he will first appear in Episode 8.

Earlier this fall, the POI showrunners told us they planned to reveal “a little more about Carter’s personal life, what makes her tick…. We’re hoping to explore who she is and how she became who she is.”

In addition to his Army Wives stint, Brown’s TV credits include guest gigs on series such as Harry’s Law, The Good Wife and Supernatural. Lifetime renewed Army Wives for Season 7, though it is unclear exactly who from the cast will return.
