Q. Are there any more "reunion" episodes planned, like “The Pretender”?
MN: They tend to happen organically. You don't really think about it, and then you realize - oh, hey, this is a reunion from a particular show or movie. Tyne Daly was on purpose, though.
Q. You've had Burt Reynolds. Any other older great stars in the works for future episodes?
MN: Not specifically - we cast by part more than actor. But more and more cool folks are aware of the show and interested.
Q. Any chance for Bradley Whitford or Colin Hanks to guest on Burn Notice? Or the car?
MN: Well... the short answer is yes and no. We tried to have Bradley on this year but he was not available when we needed him. So hopefully in the future. I'd love to have Colin on but never asked because he was on Dexter and he'd just had a baby. As for the Trans-Am, it is currently sitting in my driveway. Got it back from the shop today, and the electrical system is still shot. So if you know anyone in LA who is good with 1980 Trans Ams let me know.
Q. Any chance of the actor Michael Weston coming back? Not only was that a great character, but I loved the double Michaels!
MN: We've discussed it, yes. He's a great guy, and a terrific actor. Stories with him have been pitched, they just haven't gone all the way through.
Q. I agree, the ACTOR Michael Weston was great. He should come back too. Loved the episode he was in!
MN: Yeah, that was a fun one. A bit of a departure for us in some ways... but a great guy. Sounds like we may need to look seriously at a return.
Q. Are you going to let your son do any more acting?
MN: Well, he was on the Good Guys. And my daughter - also adorable - also did an episode this year. And she did the Good Guys as well. They like it. But they're not eager to go on auditions or anything. i think it's just fun to come to Dad's work.
Recurring Characters/Cover IDs
Q. Is Larry dead?
MN: Yes, Larry is dead. My wife has a rule that I'm not allowed to do TV shows with fake-out deaths. I suppose I could fight that, but it would make my home life difficult.
Q. I'm sad Dead Larry is actually dead. But the newspaper at the end of the episode only said 2 dead. I thought there were 3 in the building?
MN: Ah, yes... the idea is that Larry was incinerated. T4 is some powerful stuff.
Q. Is Tim happy now that he doesn't have to act WHILE he's directing anymore?
MN: Tim loves both. He’d operate the camera too if we let him.
Q. Why was Jay Karnes' killed off? That made me so sad. He was my favorite villain/recurring character ever! Please tell him that!
MN: I will. Jay has become a really good friend of mine. It's kind of odd saying to your good friend "Um... Dude, I don't know how to tell you this, but we're killing you. With a knife. In the chest. Oh, by the way, you wanna bring the kids over for dinner Friday?"
Q. I'd love to see Michael and Fi work with Seymour again. Can he come back? I was in stitches his episodes!
MN: We are talking about doing just that in Season 6! No promises, because we've got to work stuff out with the actor, but we love him. Oddly, about a year before he became Seymour, I met him in a bar. Didn't even know he was an actor. He was just a guy drinking tequila who knew a lot about politics.
Q. What is the possibility that Kendra makes a comeback? I liked her and would love to see her come back again, even if for an episode.
MN: Do you mean Carla? Kendra doesn’t ring a bell…
Q. By Kendra I mean the season 4 Kendra, the assassin, she was in 3 episodes "Entry Point" "Neighborhood Watch" and Breach of Faith". Will she make any comebacks? I really liked her and would love to see her come back.
MN: Wow! My bad. So sorry... I just forgot her name. We loved writing for her, too. No specific plans, but now that you mention it... Wasn't her interrogation scene awesome!?
Q. I think the actress who played Kendra is Navi Rawat. Yes, she was really good. So, any chance Matt?
MN: Yes, Navi is great. We loved her a lot. I just forgot her character name because we called her "Navi" around the office.
Q. You don't remember Kendra?
MN: Yes, I am apologizing to everyone for that - I just forgot the character name. There are some people we refer to by actor name, and some people we refer to by character name. She was an actor name person.
Q. What has happened to Barry?
MN: The actor who plays Barry moved to LA, making it harder to put him in episodes regularly. So he went from a guy we could just throw into an episode whenever we wanted to a guest star who had to fly in. We love him - it's just a practical question.
Q. My favorite episode is "Friendly Fire" are we ever going to see the return of Michael's "Lewis" ? *snap*
MN: Lewis is one of our favorites, too. I imagine we'll bring him back at some point. So much awesome there.
Q. Will Michael's character Johnny make another appearance?
MN: He's one of our faves, so hopefully, yes.
