BURBANK, CA - MAY 06: Actor Chi McBride attends The 6th Annual George Lopez Celebrity Golf Classic To Benefit The Lopez Foundation at Lakeside Golf Club on May 6, 2013 in Burbank, California.
When we bought the show last year, it was really designed and developed as a single-star vehicle, telling the story of a young man’s meteoric rise from a beat cop to the Police Commissioner of New York ... When we watched the pilot shoot, there was a palpable chemistry between Theo James and Chi McBride. So it was during shooting of the pilot, watching the shooting of the first episode, that you could see that this show was evolving into a different kind of show. A mentor/mentee relationship. You’ll see, it’s turned into a two-hander between these two actors. It’s extraordinary.
When we meet, I’m just trying to make it through the next two years without getting shot ... What Clark does, is he basically shakes [Owen] awake because the guy’s been a coma [metaphorically] for the last 12 years and he kind of wakes him up and makes him turn that corner toward being the cop that he can be, that he could have been before several things that happened in his personal life and his life on the job.More quotes »
