William Petersen remains one of the more sought-after actors to headline a TV show but the former star of CSI isn’t ready to come back to broadcast TV … yet. Instead, he’s set to appear Friday opposite Julia Stiles in Blue, a web series in its second season from Rodrigo Garcia (Albert Nobbs, In Treatment) about a single mom who’s trying to protect her son from the consequences of her secret career as an upscale escort. Petersen, who splits his time between Los Angeles and Chicago, plays Blue’s (Stiles) father, who has been in jail for the majority of her life and is serving a life sentence.
“Rodrigo just asked,” Petersen tells EW of the one-day shoot in Culver City, CA. “It was kind of cool, this two-person scene. I mean, there’s no money. But it’s sort of old school filmmaking. It was bare bones, a couple of walls. A piece of glass.”
Here’s an exclusive peek at Blue, which can be found on You Tube’s WIGS channel. The current season of Blue ends April 5 and also stars Mark Consuelos, Holly Robinson Peete and Kathleen Quinlan. READ FULL STORY
