In THE ROOKIE’s second season, Eric Winter’s character, LAPD training officer Tim Bradford, is starting to mellow a little. Sure, in the series created by Alexi Hawley, Bradford still addresses all the new officers as “Boot,” has no patience with slow responses, and generally expects everybody to live up to his standards of perfection. However, Bradford has gotten noticeably gentler with his trainee, Officer Lucy Chen (Melissa O’Neil), ever since she survived being kidnapped by a serial killer. Bradford has even mellowed, a little, toward the department’s oldest rookie, John Nolan, played by Nathan Fillion. Winter, a native Californian, played […]Read On »

This season, he’s got a new training officer, Nyla Harper (played by Mekia Cox), a former undercover officer. Harper was written in after Afton Williamson, who played the rookie’s previous training officer Talia Bishop, left the series complaining of sexual harassment by a guest actor and a crew member. Other changes on THE ROOKIE involve Nolan’s fellow trainee Lucy Chen (Melissa O’Neil) surviving being kidnapped and buried alive by a serial killer, Lucy’s training […]Read On »

In ABC’s Tuesday night drama THE ROOKIE, Nathan Fillion plays the title character, John Nolan. Nolan joins the LAPD in his forties, which is highly unusual. Richard T. Jones plays Sergeant Wade Grey, who is vehemently opposed to Nolan joining the force, fearing that an older newcomer will be a distraction at best, a lethal danger at worst. In his own career, actor Jones is no rookie when it comes to playing law enforcement. He recently portrayed police detectives in WISDOM OF THE CROWD and AMERICAN HORROR STORY, an officer as a series regular on BROOKLYN SOUTH and a recurring […]Read On »

ABC’s first-season Tuesday-night drama THE ROOKIE is based on a real person. Like Nathan Fillion’s character, John Nolan, a man in his forties who’d already had a career came from a small town in the Eastern U.S. to join the Los Angeles Police Department. Who is the real person? “I can’t tell you that,” says THE ROOKIE creator/executive producer Alexi Hawley. “He’s on the job, and he has only been on the job for a few years, and he is very focused on being a successful police officer.” Giving the officer’s real name, Hawley explains, could jeopardize the man’s job, […]Read On »
