Look for some changes when TNT's "Rizzoli & Isles" returns to the lineup in July. That's the word from Lee Thompson Young, who says the team is two episodes into its second season, production-wise.And a word from Angie:
According to him, we'll see a "deepening and strengthening of the relationships between the people inside the homicide unit ... Everyone's life is getting filled out, and that's really interesting to play as an actor."
He also says there are "definitely some partner dynamics" ahead between Angie Harmon's Rizzoli character and her former partner in the homicide detective squad, played by Bruce McGill.
"There'll be workplace shifts, too. And the sets have been updated."
He points out, "Obviously Sasha (Alexander) and Angie (Harmon) are fabulous, and they will always be the core of the show. But there are other avenues to explore with the rest of the ensemble, and they're doing a good job of introducing each person's character."
Young, who plays Harmon's new partner, Barry Frost, tells us the way the show took off and became a hit and "the size of the response we had was a pretty big surprise to all of us."
The personable actor and USC grad, who was once known as the title tween favorite of the Disney Channel's "The Famous Jett Jackson," has been busy elsewhere between "Rizzoli & Isles" camera calls.
'I did 'The Good Guys' on Fox, then an episode of 'The Event,' then came back to 'Rizzoli and Isles," says Young, whose credits also include the big-screen "Friday Night Lights" and "Akeelah and the Bee." "It's nice to mix it up a little bit and get a fresh perspective every time. It's like a palate cleanser. I like to fight against routine and getting stale."
