1[[quoteright:250:]]²->''"As a character actor, you have to be able to do whatever they need you to do."''²²Jerald Eugene "Jere" Burns II (born October 15, 1954) is an American actor. With his sharp features and soft drawl, Burns is often cast as disarmingly affable villains or other shady types. ²²He's a regular face in film, television and theatre. He's perhaps best known for his work on television, particularly for his role as sleazy ladies' man Kirk Morris on ''Series/DearJohn'', manipulative psychiatrist Anson Fullerton on ''Series/BurnNotice'', psychotic mobster Jake Abernathy on ''Series/BatesMotel'' and the understanding Group Leader on ''Series/BreakingBad''.²²The role that many know him for, however, is that of Dixie Mafie middle-man Wynn Duffy on the critically acclaimed ''Series/{{Justified}}''. Originally a one-shot guest appearance, Burns was gradually upgraded to recurring and then to a regular to the positive fan and critical reception to his performance. ²²!!Notable Roles²* 1984 - ''Series/HillStreetBlues'' as James Fitzsimmons²* 1987-1988 - ''Series/MaxHeadroom'' as Breughel / Breughal²* 1988-1992 - ''Series/DearJohn'' as Kirk Morris²* 1993 - ''Series/{{Bob}}'' as Pete Schmidt²* 2004-2007 - ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible'' as Mego²* 2010-2011 - ''Series/BreakingBad'' as Group Leader²* 2011-2012 - ''Series/BurnNotice'' as Anson Fullerton²* 2013 - ''Series/BatesMotel'' as Jake Abernathy²* 2010-2014 - ''Series/{{Justified}}'' as Wynn Duffy²* 2016-2018 - ''Series/AngieTribeca'' as Chet Atkins²* 2018 - ''Series/TheXFiles'' as Dr. Randolph Luvenis²* 2019 - ''Series/AllRise'' as Adam Pryce²----
