‘Burn Notice’ Actor Smitten With Spy Gadgets

MIAMI (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Thanks to the cool gadgets on his show, Burn Notice actor Jeffrey Donovan feels like a modern-day McGuyver.

Donovan – who plays a blacklisted spy on the action series – can’t help but gush over the gadgets he gets to play with onscreen.

His favorite spy trinket to date was an X-Ray machine his character built in the trunk of a car, an idea that was drummed up by one of the show’s consultants who’s an ex-spy.

Says Donovan: “Our consultant actually used this device once. He put a taser through an old TV tube which still had a wave that ignited. I couldn’t believe it!”

Donovan is also a fan of the infrared night vision goggles his character uses and wouldn’t mind borrowing them from the set.

He laughs, “They’d come in handy driving at night or out in the woods.”

The season finale of Burn Notice airs March 5 on USA.
