Walter Emanuel Jones (Zack, MMPR) recently appeared on the primetime cop drama, "Prime Suspect," during the show's tenth episode, titled "A Gorgeous Mosaic." Jones appeared in a trio of scenes as Randall Hughes, a young man who is arrested in connection with a robbery, which quickly turns into a homicide when the elderly victim dies from her injuries. Randall is brought in with another young man, who both accuse the other of robbing the woman after the police found them fighting over the woman's purse on the street. Without a criminal record (unlike the other suspect), the investigators figure that Randall is the most vulnerable under interrogation and they poke enough holes in his story that he reveals he and the other man committed the crime together, but when his partner got too rough with the old woman, Randall tried to call him off, leading to the scuffle between the men when the police arrived.
Ron Roggé (Captain Mitchell, Lightspeed) recently appeared on the hit comedy "Modern Family," in the tenth episode of the current season, titled "Express Christmas." After realizing they all have conflicting plans for Christmas, which is a week away, the family decides to put together an express Christmas on December 16th, scrambling to get everything they traditionally enjoy on the holiday. As part of his grocery shopping duties, Phil and his young brother-in-law Manny, make an unexpected stop to meet a man to buy a baseball card, which Phil found on Craigslist. Ron Roggé appears in two scenes as the unnamed man, who tries to bargain with Phil, raising the price. When Manny mistakenly believes the man is going to abduct him, he pulls out a stun gun, accidentally stunning Phil instead. Roggé's character gives up the card, but also manages to take the family's turkey as well.
The third series of "Underbelly" came to an end with the thirteenth episode of "The Golden Mile," titled "Alpha and Omega." Firass Dirani (Nick/Bowen, Mystic Force) appeared throughout the episode as John Ibrahim, the young club owner whose mysterious dealings with criminal elements in King's Cross reach a climax. After the murder of his friend DK in the previous episode, John finds himself under scrutiny by the police, as the only viable suspect in the crime, despite his pleas of innocence. He finally convinces detective Joe Dooley that all of the things he's acquired in King's Cross have come legitimately from his hard work, not from getting involved with drug violence. He pleads with Dooley to keep the streets safe, so he will no longer carry a gun and have armed men guarding his clubs. When the murder investigation leads the police to the suburbs, they find the men responsible and Ibrahim is cleared of suspicion. Given the violence and mayhem of King's Cross, John Ibrahim is left as the only powerful man standing in the end. A full zip of Firass Dirani's screencaps are available to download below.
