Ben McKenzie: 'Dramatic Plotline' Coming on 'Southland'

Ben McKenzie leans against a patrol car while shooting Southland on Wednesday (February 15) in Los Angeles.

The 33-year-old actor filmed scenes for the TNT drama with co-star Lou Diamond Phillips, where he pushes a woman against a wall.

“Towards the end of the season, there’s a very dramatic plotline involving my character,” Ben recently told AfterElton in an on-set interview.

“[He's] trying to help out this prostitute and her daughter and getting them away from this pimp who’s abusive and terrible to them and it culminates with some pretty serious stuff,” he added.

Catch Southland Tuesdays at 10/9c on TNT!

    I always thought that Kid Chino was going to be an architect but he ended up becoming a cop.
    Just like Ryan Atwood, Sherman still gets the women

    Are all police officers that handsome? And every hair in place.He’s a pretty cool cop.

  • tina

    He’s so handsome. And a humble, underrated actor too.

  • amber

    The last episode was so powerful but the pranks between Ben and Sammy cracked me up.

  • cathy

    Is he the gay cop ?

  • brina

    @cathy: No. Sherman is definitely not the gay cop, lol. Actually he’s the cop that gets the most lady action. He has like a different female every other episode. Cooper is the gay cop.

  • brenda

    The gay cop is the one who nearly got Sherman killed in Season 3 because of his addiction to painkillers.
