Jason Gedrick

Jason Gedrick was born on February 7, 1965, in Chicago, Illinois. While still in high school, he landed the role of an extra in "Bad Boys". Meeting Sean Penn inspired him to pursue acting as a career. Jason's many feature films include "Iron Eagle", "Stacking", "Heavenly Kid", "Promised Land", "Backdraft" and "Crossing the Bridge". He has also appeared on Broadway in "Our Town" and in the off-Broadway production of "Mrs. Dally Has a Lover". Probably best known for his television roles, he has appeared in "Murder One", "EZ Streets" and the CBS mini-series "The Last Don" and "The Last Don II". And, yes, he was the "Car Wash Guy" on Ally McBeal. Jason has three sons - Jian, Ty and Garrett.

Jason portrays Los Angeles Police Officer Tom Turcotte.

Police Officer Tom Turcotte is a beat cop struggling to prove himself. As the son of a famous detective, he's trying to live up to his father's expectations which leads to a lot of tension between father and son. Tom is, also, openly resentful of Detective Joel Stevens' more rapid rise in the ranks of the LAPD. Something of a ladies' man, he is contemplating settling down, possibly with fellow officer Karen Crane.

Jason describes Tom:

"The great thing about this character is that he's going through a process where he thinks he's doing what he wants to do.  The only concern in his life right now is to be the best cop he can be, because he hasn't come to terms with who he really is yet, which leaves it wide open for me and, of course, the writing to go in any direction possible. Maybe he can almost get out of the department and come back, maybe he suddenly becomes a great police officer."

"There's a competitive thing going on [with Donnie's character, Joel Stevens]. Everything came easy to him, and how come it's not working for me? I seem to have all the goods, but for some reason I just can't come through.

"So I like the questions. The most interesting thing about this character is the fact there are few decisions made. There's a lot of deciding that has to be done."
