Mary McDonnell: At 60, Stardom Strikes. Interview with “Life Reimagined”
“There’s babe, district attorney and Driving Miss Daisy,” fumes Goldie Hawn’s character in The First Wives Club, uttering the much-quoted line lamenting the three stages for actresses. Mary McDonnell says that line speaks the truth.
In the 1990s, the flame-haired beauty played babe roles in Dances with Wolves where she snuggled with Kevin Costner and Independence Day where she was the brave First Lady. A few birthdays later she wondered: Is my career over?
“I’m not 25. I’m not even 40,” says the soft-spoken actress who never dreamed that at 60, she would become the star of Major Crimes on TNT, one of the biggest hit dramas on TV. “I was at a certain age where I wondered if Hollywood would ever let me work again.”
I have added a new 2 HQ stills from 2×13 of Major Crimes.
When a newly released prisoner misses two back-to-back parole meetings, the squad is called in to track him down after the suspect’s therapist expresses concerns over his mental state. Meanwhile, Sharon invites therapist, Dr. Joe Bowman (guest star Bill Brochtrup), to the office to evaluate Rusty over a game of chess. Esai Morales also guest stars.
We finally have a press release from TNT for the upcoming episodes. Make sure you tune in November 25th on TNT!
This past summer on Major Crimes, Raydor and the detectives in the squad finally settled into a good working relationship. But they are now under the watchful eye of Deputy District Attorney Emma Rios, who has been assigned to shadow investigations and work with Raydor’s team to build successful cases and secure plea deals whenever possible.
Throughout the summer, Rusty struggled to come to terms with his past and his own emotional turmoil. His close friendship with a female classmate showed signs of bringing his life some sense of normality, but Rusty pushed her away for reasons he refuses to explain. And Rusty’s distrust of DDA Rios will continue to grow as her actions make him begin to question her intentions.
In the winter episodes of Major Crimes, the squad will be called upon to investigate the deaths of two brothers who may have died as a result of a bad batch of drugs, track down a recently released prisoner whose therapist has concerns he could be dangerous and follow a money trail full of surprises when a body turns up at a posh country club. The winter episodes will also reveal the mysterious person sending threatening letters to Rusty and Raydor, and Rusty will finally testify against Phillip Stroh in a preliminary hearing. Jon Tenney – who played FBI Agent Fritz Howard on The Closer and the first season of Major Crimes – returns to direct the Dec. 16 episode and will guest star in two episodes.

Take a look and see what Major Crimes has in store for us when it starts up again. November 25th on TNT! Make sure you tune in!
MMO: How has it been working on Major Crimes so far? What has the experience been like?
NV:Working on Major Crimes has been one of my best experiences as an actress so far. I have to say. Working with Denzel Washington and Robert Zemekis in Flight was outstanding, but Major Crimes is right up there. Specifically Mary McDonnell. I am in love with her. She’s fascinating. Please include me in your Mary fanclub because I am definitely a fan.
