First Trailer for TRANSPORTER: THE SERIES Starring Chris Vance

ImageJason Statham owned the Transporter movie franchise with his rules, ass-kicking and charisma, but he’s handing over the keys for an iteration meant for the small screen. The new Transporter: The Series centers on Frank Martin, an ex-Special Forces field operative who has taken to transporting precious cargo to make a living. While Statham made the role famous, Chris Vance (All Saints) will climb into the driver’s seat for the series. The premise is series worthy, but without Statham, will it be enough? Hit the jump to watch the first trailer for Transporter: The Series.

Vance is a veteran of the small screen, having starred in Burn Notice, Dexter, Prison Break, Mental and Rizzoli & Isles. While the trailer suggests that the action, romance and high stakes are all present, it’ll take me a while to warm up to Vance as the new Frank Martin. The series itself, however, looks to crank up the heat with a cast of leading ladies that includes Hungarian actress, Andrea Osvart. She stars as a former CIA agent who organizes Martin’s missions (and teases as a love interest). The series also features the return of Francois Berleand as Inspector Tarconi from the films. Look for Transporter to air on Cinemax stateside.

Rizzoli & Isles stars Angie Harmon & Lee Thompson Young on walking the beat

Image The precinct police station is a major set for RIZZOLI & ISLES, the TNT series now in its third season, Tuesdays at 10 PM, adapted by Janet Tamaro from Tess Gerritsen’s mystery novels. Jane Rizzoli, played by Angie Harmon, is a Boston police homicide detective, who is best friends with police coroner Dr. Maura Isles, played by Sasha Alexander.

It's not surprising to see that Harmon looks at home on the precinct set even when she's not in character, nor that she has a comfortable, bantering relationship in real life with Lee Thompson Young, who plays Rizzoli's partner Detective Barry Frost. The two actors appear to delight in teasing one another while helping visiting journalists explore the realistic-looking workplace where investigations are launched and deductive strategies are discussed.

Rizzoli is hardly Harmon’s first stab at playing someone who solves murders. She also played New York Assistant District Attorney Abbie Carmichael on three seasons of LAW & ORDER (plus appearing as the character on episodes of LAW & ORDER: SVU), as well as headlining a season of WOMEN'S MURDER CLUB.

With TNT airing LAW & ORDER reruns on a regular basis, it's natural to wonder whether the network hoped that its viewers would be eager to see more of Harmon. The actress says viewers certainly aren’t seeing her in a similar role with Rizzoli.

"I think Abbie and Jane are dramatically different," Harmon explains, "not only in appearance, but also in their ideals and jobs and who they are and what they want and how they picture society and what their views are for it. Plus, it's been over twelve, thirteen years since I was on [LAW & ORDER]."

Still, Harmon allows that she does like playing women involved in law enforcement, though she’d like to do many more kinds of characters as well.

"Obviously, I love it and I love these characters. I love playing a strong, empowered woman," says Harmon. "But as an actor, I'd love to do a musical, I'd love to be in a Western, I'd love to play a crack addict, I'd love to play a prostitute – anything. That's my job. Whichever works for you, works for me. That's our job. We get to pretend. And I think it takes a certain kind of person who wants to do that for a living. Because it isn't all easy, it isn’t all just, 'Woo-hoo, and then we went on set and we had a blast!' I mean, we did a scene [in Season Two] and I came out shaking and went to my trailer and threw up, and that’s the first time that's ever happened to me as an actor, and it was great. It didn't feel really great before, but while I was throwing up, which is the most horrible experience, I was like, "This is great!'" Harmon makes a retching sound, non-graphically re-enacting the mixture of physical wretchedness and emotional euphoria. "'I love my job!' Which is very odd and off-putting," she observes with a laugh. "But it's like, this man, who works at the grocery store, I don’t know if he feels that [enthusiastic] way about his job."
