Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - NEWS -

ADAM Ro­driguez knows how to wear a po­lice uni­form. He also knows how to take one off … as we learnt when he joined Chan­ning Ta­tum’s male- strip­per dream team in the hit movie Magic Mike.

Ro­driguez is let­ting it all hang out again in Magic Mike XXL, now shoot­ing in the US state of Ge­or­gia. But given it won’t hit cin­e­mas un­til July, for now our best chance at see­ing Ro­driguez com­bine hot and steamy with law en­force­ment is his new show Reck­less.

Cre­ator of the se­ries Dana Stevens hopes Reck­less fol­lows in the foot­steps of NYPD Blue, a show that “broke ground with sex­i­ness on net­work TV”.

The hot part is a given, as the show is set in the South. The steamy part is down to the love tri­an­gle be­tween Ro­driguez ( play­ing a cop, Preston Cruz), Anna Wood ( as feisty at­tor­ney Jamie Sawyer) and Cam Gi­gan­det ( as Jamie’s court­room op­po­nent, Roy Ray­der).

That Ro­driguez has cho­sen to play a cop so soon after serv­ing 10 years as Eric Delko on

CSI: Mi­ami may sur­prise some, but the New Yorker be­lieves Reck­less packs a diff er­ent punch.

“I’m get­ting a chance to do some­thing here that I didn’t for so long play­ing a cop on a pro­ce­dural show.

“There’s so much more depth to the char­ac­ters.”
