"Outlaw" With Jimmy Smits

October 4, 2010

You know what I was doing late Friday night? I had a date with my tivo (and my hubby, too). My sister Laura had a role on Friday's episode of "Outlaw," a new court-procedural starring Jimmy Smits--her name even appears in the opening credits. The story line itself was really depressing--Smits defending a woman against murder charges. In a ripped-from-the-headlines case, the defendant is a seemingly emotionless woman (disassociated) charged with negligent homocide when her baby dies after being forgotten in a stifling car while the woman goes in to work for the day.

Heavy stuff, this. Even so, I watched eagerly awaiting the scene with my sister, Laura. She plays the defendant's best friend, distraught and torn about having to testify against her. Her performance was emotionally real--very touching. I'm so proud of her!
