How did you end up on Without a Trace?
I don’t know why the cast me. I know they like me on set but I think they just like my haircut (laughing). They didn’t need me for ratings; it was just an audition. They needed a cop that the audience would trust quickly and I was in a good mood … I think I bragged about the brand new suit I was wearing (laughing). I think I’m the trustable cop, which probably means I’m going to die.

Reports have been that you are doing four episodes with the potential to turn into more.
I’m glad they told you (laughing). That’s great. Really?

That’s what’s on the internet.
Great.I think they should hire me. I’m having a great time with them. I’ve only acted with Marianne Jean-Baptiste so far and she’s just fabulous. She’s a really cool person but don’t mess with her (laughing). I’d never mess with her – I always know my lines and we’re bonding over Aretha Franklin right now. The crew and the directors are so tight; they don’t make any mistakes. I’m used to being the guy that knows his lines while the crew makes a few mistakes but they never screw up anything. If you know your lines it’s two takes and out and you go back home.
