'Burn' star happy to share limelight (Luaine Lee, 7/05/08, MCCLATCHY NEWSPAPERS)

It's a little difficult to tell the good guys from the bad guys on USA's Burn Notice, and that's one of the things that make the character-driven thriller unique.

When star Jeffrey Donovan was cast as the spy who is driven in from the cold, he knew a lot about Bruce Campbell, who was to play his unkempt cohort, Sam.

"I actually had heard about him through a friend of mine who knew him," says Donovan. "So I knew just of him, but that's not to say that I wasn't a fan of his because I don't actually know many actors - because I don't go to the movies and I don't watch television. But now that I've gotten to know him, I couldn't ask for a better costar. And I'm sure actors say that all the time, but they're lying. I know all of them. They're lying. And this is the truth. You can't ask for a better actor coming from his huge career; to come and grace us on this show has been just a blessing for us."

You've got four days to get caught up before the new season starts.

We stumbled on "Burn Notice" last summer and left it on the DVR, so when the re-runs started, we watched them all again. They're lots of fun and I love Fiona. Oh to be that young and skinny again!

Tanks for the reminder, I almost forgot to program the DVR.
Next to Remember is TNT's "The Closer".
