I must say, I miss my Raising the Bar team. That’s why I was so excited to see Teddy Sears on The Client List. I just miss them.
Well, if you’re like me, then tonight we’re in luck. Mark-Paul Gosselaar is guest starring on Rizzoli & Isles! That’s right, you can check him out back on TNT tonight at 10-9c.
Gosselaar plays Garrett Fairfield, a college boyfriend of Dr. Maura Isles. Garrett is the handsome middle son of a wealthy and powerful old Boston family who returns home to mourn the death of his oldest brother. Garrett’s family is a member of the respected “Brahmins,” Boston’s oldest families, who trace their roots back to the landing of the Mayflower. Between boyfriends and bodies, this means that we’re in for a treat.
Wow, that was morbid.
Anyway, that’s not all that he’s got in store for us. I was lucky enough to talk to Gosselaar on a conference call last week, where he chatted about his role on the show, his new show for next summer (Franklin & Bash–a lawyer comedy), and his upcoming appearance on Weeds!
It was a pretty quick call, but check out the highlights below. And don’t forget to watch Rizzoli & Isles tonight!
On working with the girls of Rizzoli & Isles:
[W]orking with the two girls, it was great. We had a relationship before I actually stepped foot on the set. I know – I’ve known Angie for a while. I met Sasha on our way to the upfront this year for TNT, and they’re lovely. They’re great to work with. I’m also friends with the writer who wrote the episode as well as the director who directed the episode, and then, of course, my relationship with TNT. So it was a – it was fun environment to be a part of.
On being the guest star:
Well…it’s been a while. I had fun and sometimes it’s a bit easier. You just show up, do your work, and go home and you don’t really need to worry about anything else. It was – it was nice, but like I said, it was a good environment to be a part of and definitely felt like some of the other sets that I’ve – that I’ve ran, they’re great, the two of them, and as well as the production was really strong. So, yes, it was – it was painless.
