On the heels of last weeks announcement that we’d be getting to meet the long-estranged husband of Sharon Raydor this season on Major Crimes, now we get to put a face to the name!
TV Guide is reporting that Golden Globe winner Tom Berenger has been tapped to play Jackson Raydor. Jackson is reportedly “a brilliant, charming and charismatic attorney who has taken a long break from law to pursue his gambling passion. When the handsome high roller returns to Los Angeles, he accepts a job as a court-appointed attorney and becomes fast buds with Rusty. Not surprisingly, he and Sharon are expected to clash during Berenger’s three episodes.”
From the TNT Press Release:
“Tom Berenger is set guest star in three episodes this summer on TNT‘s hit drama series Major Crimes, which is set to kick off its second season in June.
Berenger won a Golden Globe® for his performance in Platoon and has starred in several other major films, including The Big Chill, Someone to Watch Over Me and Major League. Berenger was also nominated for an Emmy® for his role in hit television series Cheers. His more recent work includes his role in box office hit Inception and Primetime Emmy award winning appearance in the television miniseries Hatfields & McCoys.
In Major Crimes, Berenger will play Captain Sharon Raydor’s estranged husband of 25 years, Jackson Raydor. A brilliant lawyer, Jackson has taken a long break from working to follow his real passion, gambling, but he returns to Los Angeles to work as a court-appointed attorney. Charming and charismatic, Jackson becomes fast friends with Rusty but Sharon continues to remain wary.”
