On ABC's mid-season hit, In Justice (Fridays at 9 pm/ET), Jason O'Mara and Kyle MacLachlan head up the National Justice Project, a group that works hard (and TV-fast!) to get wrongfully convicted people pulled out of prison. TVGuide.com spoke with O'Mara about his transition from rugby star to actor, about In Justice's upcoming controversial episode, and about — get this — the woman he and this writer have in common.

TVGuide.com: For starters, I want to say that I love the show and have it on my TiVo list. Good stuff!
