On Person of Interest, Reese and Fusco get caught in the middle of a war raging between crime lords Elias and Dominic. POI fans might recognize Elias. In 2011, Elias famously pretended to be a school teacher named Charlie Burton, a witness to a botched mob hit, who allegedly needed protection from Reese (which Elias took advantage of) until Reese and Fusco figured out Charlie was Elias.
Elias is portrayed by actor Enrico Colantoni. He’s best known for his roles on Just Shoot Me! (photographer Elliot DiMauro), Veronica Mars (Veronica’s dad Keith Mars), and Flashpoint (lead negotiator Greg Parker). Person of Interest airs Tuesdays at 10pm on CBS.
