Eric Winter On Rizzoli & Isles Gig
Eric Winter (ex-Rex, DAYS) appeared on TNT's RIZZOLI & ISLES last night, and the actor, who is filming Lifetime's upcoming series, THE WITCHES OF EAST END, would love to return. "Hopefully I can come back next season," Winter says. "They had to stop my recurring [role] this season because I booked [WITCHES]. I was supposed to be in the last two, including the season finale, and then I got this gig so they reshaped the story. I don’t know what they reshaped, but we have talked and ideally I’ll be back about next season." Winter enjoyed working with Sasha Alexander (Maura Isles). "I came on as a bomb technician who sparks a quirky, flirty relationship with Maura. We hit it off over a case. It’s a fun dynamic, not in the obvious right-off-the-bat attraction, but it’s on a deeper, funny level that we start to say, 'Hey, this could be interesting.' " Tune into TNT for repeats of the episode this week. WITCHES OF EAST END premieres October 6.
