AN EYEFUL OF ADAM
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.”
