Lackawanna Blues

Rosie Perez signed for Geena Davis pilot

Rosie PerezThey've done the right thing at CBS in casting -- at least it seems right. Brooklyn native Rosie Perez will play Lorna, Geena Davis' cop partner on the force in Exit 19. I say it's the right thing, and good casting, because Lorna is supposed to be a Brooklyn girl. You can't get more authentic than Rosie Perez. She's a New Yorker through and through. In Exit 19, with Geena cast as a cop who works in the city while raising two kids in Long Island, the work atmosphere will likely seem a lot more realistic with Perez as her partner. If they can muster up the chemistry of a Cagney & Lacey, they'll be well on their way to a success. Of course, with Rosie all of five feet, one and a half inches and Geena a statuesque six feet, they're going to look like Mutt and Jeff.

Kelly Rowan, relapsing alcoholic on The O.C., George Engel of Everybody Loves Raymond, S. Epatha Merkerson for HBO's Lackawanna Blues, and Lori Loughlin for WB's Summerland all received acting honors at the awards show, which was sponsored by the Entertainment Industries Council, National Institute on Drug Abuse, National Institutes of Health and the FX Network. The movie, Walk the Line, also received an award.

If Without a Trace is so realistic, maybe it'll win something for that teen sex orgy scene.
