    I will watch this just to see Regina King! She is such as great actress that has been overlooked by Hollywood. So happy to see her on a new show! I do have a slight ‘girl crush’ on her too!

    Ben is actually the only one who got talent on that overrated OC show, the rest of them are all just media hos. Good luck to Ben…

  • marie

    Brody and Ben both have talent, it’s the two girls who are overexposed and overrated.

  • Daniel

    Nice can’t wait to watch the whole thing.
    Note that the background music were in The O.C.’s season one.

  • haha

  • Courtney

    I think I orgasmed in my mouth a little. Ben McKenzie is too hot for me to function.

  • carla

  • shea

    @ #11
    Well ok sorry for that. Brody is quite likeable too. But those 2 tarlets, they just makes me ICKS!

  • emma

    Bennnn! Omg you do not understand how I excited I am to see him back on tv. It’s kind of ironic that Alex Murdoch’s Orange Sky is the song for this preview, as it was a major song on The OC :)

  • Jane doe

    go Regina King! woot, woot.

  • Frankie

    This looks so good. I can’t wait until April, I want it now!!.
    Ben looks amazing in uniform, love him!.

  • Greetings

    YES!!! Finally Ben will be on Tv and in a cop-show!!!!

  • Caro

    Ahh YAY I am so excited! I love Ben and Regina! She’s such an amazing actress and deserves more recognition.

  • Anon

    I really like Ben and I’m glad he is getting another shot. I saw him in a movie where he played Amy Adam’s loser husband and he was really good. He is a fine actor. He and Adam Brody and Rachel were all good in O.C. Only Mischa Barton was just playing herself! LOL!

    I saw Ray again on TV and I LOVE Regina King. I hope this is a good show.

  • Athena

    “Orange Sky” is such an awesome song. And Ben McKenzie on a new show! Can’t go wrong!

  • Athena

  • olivia

  • lou

    The show looks awesome. Great cast! These guys are all real actors, not just pretty faces. Michael Cudlitz was great in Over There and Band of Brothers. Regina is a fav of mine. Can’t wait!

  • Bia

  • ashly

    It’s about time we’ll see Ben again. He’s too good an actor to just disappear.

  • kelli2

  • Hoodie

    I miss Ben as Ryan Atwood! Good to see him again though.

  • Polo

    The Oc is not overrated! It was the core of teenage girls’ youth!
