Ben McKenzie Gears Up For Season 4 Of ‘Southland’ [VIDEO]

December 15th, 2011 // 3 Comments

We are SO excited for Southland to return January 17th on TNT (10pm PST).  Benjamin McKenzie did a stellar job as Officer Ben Sherman, especially when he reamed John Cooper (Michael Cudlitz) out for not pulling his weight due to prescription pill abuse.  Sherman later dropped Cooper off at rehab, and was then partnered up with Detective Sammy Bryant (Shawn Hatosy), whose partner, Detective Nate Morretta (Kevin Alejandro) was assaulted by a gang member and killed. 

Fans are very interested to watch the dynamic between Sherman and Bryant, since they both have very strong personalities.  McKenzie and Hatosy talked about the upcoming season in the video after the jump.

  1. Thanks for the article! Yes, I’m a fan of Southland and Ben Sherman is my favorite character. I also like Chickie Brown and Lydia Adams. Ben McKenzie is a wonderful actor, and makes for a very nice looking cop. ;)

    Yes I’m a SL fan and Ben Sherman is my favorite character – no contest!
    I’m really hoping that he gets a lot more screen time this season. Yes I may be biased but I think that he’s been overlooked in the past.

  3. I’m not sure that I’m a SL fan, but I’m definitely a Ben McKenzie fan, so I started watching. Favorite character? Hands down it’s Ben Sherman. He’s amazing with the non-verbal, so key since he doesn’t get many lines. I think he had strong story in the beginning, the reason I know a lot of people started watching, but now we’re hoping he finally gets the material he deserves. We’ve been waiting a long time to see the background and personal story, something that would rock.

    Other favorite characters? Chickie Brown. The ideal situation for this year would have been Ben and Chickie as partners. Both characters had been very underused.

    Keep showing us more Ben, a terrific actor and a class act.
