It’s not always easy to come up with casting scoop at present for TNT’s “Major Crimes,” but there is a perfectly good reason for that: We’re talking about a show currently in hiatus, and one we’re still waiting to see come back on the air. Hopefully, this latest news will help ever so slightly to ease the wait.
Per a report from TVLine, “90210” alum Rob Estes will be appearing in the upcoming midseason premiere as a character named Clark, a guy who seems a little bit akin to the show’s version of Ray Donovan. he’s a “fixer” for the rich and famous, someone will to cover up their secrets while also making it difficult for the sins from his own past to get out. This character does also have a history in law enforcement as a former officer, which probably isn’t great for some of the main characters of this show given that he could know his way around working with him.
This casting is a little bit more in the way of evidence that the show will go on for “Major Crimes,” even if some of the characters at the moment are in the midst of some incredibly-difficult times. We say this in particular as a reference to what happened with Andy Flynn during the recent summer finale. We’re sure that the show is going to address his present state at some point fairly early on in the summer season, mostly because it feels rather impossible for the show to move forward without doing so.
From there, though, we figure that there will be plenty more cases and stories that are addressed in some sort of significant way. Stay tuned, as we’re going to have further updates as they start to come in.
