Lee Thompson Young interview in Glam Couture Magazine

ImageLee is interviewed by Victoria Pratt in the newest issue of Glam Couture Magazine.

"Yeah, it's great," he says. "But those particular women are really fantastic. Sasha has a very caring, nurturing kind of energy and she's also super hot. Angie's really sweet too. She just loves to have a good time. She's a jokester, a prankster, so she keeps everybody laughing." I ask if he ever feels overwhelmed by all the estrogen on set, and he laughs, holding his head with both of his hands. "Sometimes there are moments when the girl-talk gets a litle intense, and I have to walk away." He looks at me, almost accusingly. "Sometimes when they talk about those...feminine things I feel like I'm behind the curtain in Oz and the wizard is telling me all the secrets, and I'm like 'No! I don't wanna know!'"

Rizzoli & Isles Intel: A New Love Interest For...

ImageA new love interest for Maura Isles (Sasha Alexander) will be introduced when the series resumes on July 11th. In what could be a potentially recurring role, Isles hooks up with fellow doctor Byron Slucky, who has been acting as Rizzoli’s (Angie Harmon) trauma surgeon over the past several months. Wanting to get back to work, Rizzoli asks Slucky to clear her for active duty, but there’s some difficulty with her request. Let’s just say Rizzoli ain’t so lucky with Slucky (get it?)!

Things between Isles and Rizzoli get to be a little awkward when tough-gal Jane shows up to her colleague’s house only to find Slucky has spent the night. Ruh-oh!

In (kind of) minor news, the show is scrapping the character of Dr. Michikao Tada. In what doesn’t really seem to be a surprise after last week’s events in Japan, producers are now looking for an actress to to play Dr. Janet. Described as enthusiastic, passionate, intelligent (not cynical), and speaks with a flawless non-American accent, Janet will work alongside Maura as a doctor doing a rotation in pathology. Also rounding out the list of new characters is Officer Sam Reynolds, who will now be working the reception desk at BPD.

Rizzoli & Isles Scoop: Heroes, Bodies, And Body Contact?

ImageSeason 2 kicks off with the episode entitled "We Need Another Hero." It's been 12 weeks since Jane Rizzoli (Angie Harmon) nearly died from a life-threatening injury, and something is still getting in her way of healing. While she claims to be fine, it’s her partner-in-crime Maura Isles (Sasha Alexander) who notices Jane isn't quite up-to-par. Oh, and did I mention there's body contact between the two? Well, I did now!

The show is also introducing several new characters, including Dr. Michikao Tada (like TAH-DA, something Jane like to poke a little fun of). On loan from Japan (umm….) to assist in the lab, she's quite the fan of Dr. Isles and glad to be helping out Boston P.D.

Also joining in the season premiere is the recurring character of Sgt. Major Charles "Casey" Jones, an old friend of Rizzoli's from high school. Currently on a tour of duty in Afghanistan, Casey takes an absence from duty to visit Jane on the day she’s given a major award. With a crime committed during Casey's stay, he extends his visit to help assist in the investigation.

As Boston detective Jane Rizzoli and medical examiner Maura Isles, the pair share a quirky chemistry and put away some of Boston’s most notorious criminals.

Rizzoli & Isles Adds a Sibling, a Sidekick and a Couple of Sex Objects

ImageWell, what do you know? Rizzoli survives that finale cliffhanger where she shoots herself through the chest to take out that guy who was holding her hostage! Wild.

Yes, two of our favorite lady crimesolvers, Angie Harmon and Sasha Alexander, are returning to TV this summer with new episodes of TNT's breakout summer hit Rizzoli & Isles—only things aren't going to be the same as you remember. We just found out that the series will add at least four major characters, including a new love interest, a new relative and a new rival. Who are these folks, and more importantly, will they screw up the good thing that Jane and Maura have going?

The most important addition to the cast is probably Tommy Rizzoli, who is not just Angela Rizzoli's (Lorraine Bracco) baby but also a convicted criminal recently released from prison. Angela dotes on him, while siblings Jane and Frankie (Jordan Bridges), the two cops in the family, are much more suspicious of their little bro.

Also new to the cast are two Boston cops who get entangled with Jane. One's a strong-silent-type sergeant named Casey Jones who becomes something of a romantic prospect for Jane, and the other cop, Rico Cruz, is a sexy Latino detective who gets under Jane's skin and battles with Boston's best police woman for control over certain investigations.

Last but not least, Maura's getting a sidekick! Michi Tada is a native of Japan who is describe as "part goth, part Harajuku girl," and who joins Isles in the coroner's office and becomes a devoted acolyte of Alexander's smartypants scientist. (Does the role of Michi remind anyone of Abby from NCIS?)

What do you think? Do you think these new additions will shake up the show in a good way, or will they ruin a good thing? Got any casting suggestions for the part?

Rizzoli & Isles Season 1 out on DVD June 28

ImageTNT’s newest female cop show (after the fun and popular The Closer), Rizzoli & Isles debuts on DVD on June 28 from Warner Home Video.

The TV drama ended its debut season last year with high ratings, and its not surprising as it stars Angie Harmon, of cop TV pedigree Law & Order, and Sasha Alexander, of cop TV veteran NCIS. It also stars Jordan Bridges (TV’s Conviction), Lee Thompson Young (TV’s FlashForwad), Bruce Gill (Law Abiding Citizen) and Lorraine Bracco (TV’s Sopranos).

The television series follows, natch, Rizzoli (Harmon) and Isles (Alexander), a detective and forensics expert, as they solve crimes and try to ignore the problems in their personal lives. The show is based on the Rizzoli & Isles novels by Tess Gerritsen.

On DVD, Rizzoli & Isles: The Complete First Season will be a three-disc set priced at $39.98.

It will include all 10 episodes from the season, but no news yet on special features.
