Shawn Hatosy previews his 'perverted' character, Cam Gigandet's abs on CBS' 'Reckless'

Shawn Hatosy went from playing a cop on TNT’s Southland to playing a cop on CBS’ Reckless, but the two roles couldn’t be more different. For one thing, Southland‘s Sammy Bryant was generally a good guy. The same cannot be said for Reckless‘ Terry McCandless. “I play a cop who is pretty perverted,” Hatosy said. “He is a hateable character. I mean, his name is Terry. That’s pretty hateable right off the bat, you know? And then he’s just a jerk,” Hatosy joked.

But moving from the good guy role to the bad guy role wasn’t the only change for Hatosy. With Reckless set in Charleston, South Carolina, the new gig required him to relocate to the South, where things don’t quite work the same as in the City of Angels. “That’s one of the things that excites me as an actor, to be able to play somebody like Sammy in a world that is so just rooted in authenticity, to this world, which is Southern and the type of show that it is just completely, completely different,” he said.

'Southland' one year later: EP and stars weigh in on the odds of a movie

One year ago today, viewers watched their final hour of TNT’s Southland. After five seasons of barely surviving (and once getting canceled by NBC), arguably one of the greatest cop shows of all time went out with a literal bang when fan favorite John Cooper was shot. It was the perfect cliffhanger to end the season, but not one that fans wanted to end the series. And the feeling was mutual among Southland‘s cast and crew.

Nearly a month later, when news spread that TNT canceled Southland, rumors began about a Southland movie, or at the very least, another episode to answer some burning questions: Is John Cooper alive? Can Ben Sherman be forgiven? Has Lydia really found happiness? And what is Sammy going to do next? But sadly, nothing ever came of the so-called “wrap-up” to the series. READ FULL STORY

Goodbye 'Southland': The stars discuss the cop show's legacy

Sometimes being great just isn’t good enough. After five years of beautifully crafted storytelling, realistic portrayals, award-worthy performances, and some of the most shocking moments on television, Southland has reached the dreaded end of watch.

The cop show that was watched by few but loved enough for many told the stories of the LAPD in a way that viewers had never seen before. For five short seasons, the perfectly rough-around-the-edges drama sucked fans into the professional and personal lives of its complex heroes. From the rookie cop who lost his moral center to the veteran who tried desperately to find happiness in a sea of devastation, Southland‘s stories left an impact on everyone who chose to partake in the show’s journey.

And now, we say goodbye to Coop, Ben, Sammy, Lydia, Dewey and all those in blue whom we got to know. But before we let go, we chatted with Southland stars Michael Cudlitz, Ben McKenzie, Shawn Hatosy and Regina King for our finale post-mortem, and we asked them about the show’s legacy if this were the end: READ FULL STORY

'Southland' finale post-mortem: Stars talk show's uncertain future...and John Cooper

Southland‘s heart-pounding and ultimately heart-breaking final hour centered around the hunt for the two meth heads who killed one of the LAPD’s own in last week’s captivating episode. For Lydia, it meant leading the chase. And for John, it meant trying to be “fine” in a world filled with desk jobs and overwhelming guilt. READ FULL STORY

'Southland' season (or series?) finale: 'We're just getting into the meat of who these people are'

After last week’s incredibly visceral, emotionally draining episode of Southland, it’s hard to imagine that tonight’s season 5 finale could have any juice left, but according to the stars of the show, the finale delivers the same shock factor, albeit slightly less graphic.

We caught up with four stars of the show — Ben McKenzie, Shawn Hatosy, Michael Cudlitz and Regina King — to talk about where their characters are headed in what could potentially be Southland‘s series finale (if TNT decides against ordering a season 6). Here’s what tonight’s episode has in store:

Michael Cudlitz on John Cooper
Despite the fact that John Cooper survived the kidnapping that took his partner’s life in last week’s emotional episode, Michael Cudlitz doesn’t believe that Cooper is at his breaking point… yet. However, by the end of the finale, that could change. “There is a point where everybody snaps, and he’s not at that point strangely enough after that ordeal,” Cudlitz says. “He’s put on light duty when we come back, so I’m basically doing office duty.” And for Coop, desk work has always been his greatest fear. “A large portion of his life is not only devoted to the job, but the job defines him. [You see] that taken away from him and the consequences and the self doubt.” READ FULL STORY
