Major Crimes police captain Sharon Raydor (Mary McDonnell) is getting a major pain in the keister this season when her estranged husband, Jackson (Tom Berenger), moves in with her starting July 8 for three episodes of the TNT drama. "He is extremely charming and funny," says Berenger, who collected an Emmy last year for Hatfields & McCoys.
So why did the couple split? It seems that smilin' Jack has an addictive personality. "He was a big defense lawyer at one point, making big bucks, but he had a drinking problem," Berenger says. "He quit drinking, but then he started gambling in Vegas. He's always out of money and the kids don't want to talk to him. And now he's gotten himself back in L.A. on the court-appointed attorney list."
That's how he turns up on Raydor's doorstep, and he's intent on winning her back. "Jack's a hopeless romantic who still wears his wedding ring, but she doesn't," Berenger says. "He ends up sleeping on the couch."
