Ben McKenzie: 'Southland' Shoot with Regina King!

Ben McKenzie films scenes for the new season of Southland with co-star Regina King on Wednesday (January 5) in Los Angeles, Calif.

The 32-year-old actor sat down with the WSJ to talk about the differences of filming The O.C. and Southland.

The O.C. was all studio, more or less. In the studio, you have the problem of boredom. It becomes repetitive,” Ben said. “Out on location, you don’t have the boredom problem but you have concentration problem. I personally prefer this way of shooting to the studio way of shooting because it makes each day new and challenging and fun.”

    I love Southland! One of the best dramas on TV.
    Really hope Lydia (Regina King) and Russell (Tom Everett Scott) start a relationship. All last season there were hints about their feelings for each other :D

    Southland is a terrific underrated show. Great cast, great writing. I hope TNT knows what a gem they have. I was on the edge of my seat in the shootout scene.

    Nice guns on Ben Mckenzie!
