The Mentalist Patrick Jane (Simon Baker) television actor and star of the weekly CBS television program is a consultant to the California Bureau of Investigation. He locates persons of interest and solves crimes and would make an ideal adoption detective.
Acting as a perennial protagonist he exhibits highly developed observational skills and a deep insight into the human psyche and behavior. He exhibits highly unorthodox skills and employees bizarre techniques to locate persons of interest. He solves crimes through his genius, keen powers of observation and deduction, knowledge of heredity and social engineering, and by reading people’s minds. His character is confident, vibrant, entertaining and amusing. He would be my ideal choice to portray an adoption detective in the movies.
