Ben McKenzie: Los Angeles Shootout

Ben McKenzie fires his handgun for an action scene on the set of Southland in Los Angeles on Wednesday (November 3).

The 32-year-old actor was joined by castmates Michael Cudlitz and Arija Bareikis where the actors hid behind bullet-ridden police cruisers.

On Tuesday, Ben showed that he participated in the mid-term elections as he was spotted sporting a “I Voted” sticker on his shirt on his way to lunch.

SPOILER ALERT! As for the next season of Southland, Ben will inadvertently get involved with a redheaded woman who has a taste for police officers, according to E!. Sounds like it’s going to get messy! The new episodes will air on TNT in January. 15+ pictures inside…

    From Tennessee Williams to gritty cop drama

    So happy TNT is giving this a chance. This is ten times better than that new Law and Order.

    I don’t know about u people, but this guy turns me on every time I see him on TV or in pictures. So HOT!!!…a bit pale, though. I mean, look at his legs. Still love him, no matter what ;) Good job, JJ!

    He has gained quite a gut, i.e. his stomach is experiencing the battle against the bulge.. Still a great actor, though

  • cami

    Love Southland, love TNT, love Ben Mckenzie!!
    He looks great.

  • lexy hates bilson

    Good for him! Nice to see some talented actors on this site!

  • Tiffany

    @IAmKenneth: I think it’s just the angle some of the pics are taken at. In interviews he has no gut at all.

  • Tiffany

    @IAmKenneth: I think it’s just the angle some of the pics are taken at. Plus that belt they wear is really tight. In interviews he doesn’t have a gut at all… so I’m willing to bet you it’s not what you think.

  • eva

    Very very good actor.

  • mrs. robinson

    Thanks for the pictures. I’m looking forward to more Southland. Ben looks like to Hulked up during the break.

  • aeg

    @Tiffany: Only Cudlitz wears that belt around his stomach for the character he plays. None of the rest of the cast wear it, incl. Ben.

  • ar

    Ben went straight to filming Southland after finishing up his play The Glass Menagerie. Maybe he didn’t have enough time to get superfit.

  • Tiffany

    @aeg: That is not the belt I am talking about. It is clear that he has a belt on in these clips. not sure what it is for, it could be for shooting. He is not wearing just an undershirt and pants in these pics.

  • cooperfan

    The belt that Michael is wearing is for his character. Cooper has back problems. There is a scene from last season where Cooper removes his shirt and you can see him wearing this thing.

  • Tiffany

    @cooperfan: cooper’s belt is not the belt I was talking about. someone would have to be blind to not notice that Ben, Arijas (sp.?) , and the other actors are wearing a belt around their waste in these pics… probably to stabilizing them for shooting the gun. i am through explaining myself.

    i watch the show. i’m not dumb. i know Cooper has back problems and wears a different belt. that has nothing to do with what I was talking about. I give up on here.

  • aeg

    @Tiffany: Hahaha, “I am through explaining myself” LOL!…u sound funny. Clearly u studied those pics. I can see u’r a fan of this show and have background information about their costumes. If u say he wears a belt, well, u know more than I do. I just don’t pay a lot of attention when I look at pics (especially pics of Ben because my heart’d start beating and I loose everything just by looking at him), so I assumed u were referring to the back belt. Sorry for the misunderstanding. BTW, I’m a HUGE fan of him…obviously!
