Ben McKenzie Speaks About His 'Southland' Role

Ben McKenzie Speaks About His 'Southland' Role

Ben McKenzie hits the red carpet at the GQ “Men of the Year” Party at L.A.’s Chateau Marmont on Wednesday (November 18).

The 31-year-old actor, who wore John Varvatos to the soiree, rubbed elbows with Amanda Seyfried and Jessica Stroup and spoke to about how his character is evolving on the recently saved Southland.

“He actually gets more comfortable in the police force, but…he’s starting to go down a little bit of a rough path,” Ben shared. “Some of the things he’s seeing on the job are starting to affect him personally and affect his ability to handle that emotionally.”

    Tom Nichols, those pics aren’t old. They are from a few days ago… like November 18 or something. It’s better to say nothing if you don’t know what you’re talking about… no offense.
