Archives For Kevin Bacon

“Mystic River,” “Patriots Day” and now the Showtime series, “City On A Hill.” All three are set in Boston and all three include Kevin Bacon. The actor told Seth Meyers that the series is “probably my sixth or seventh thing I’ve done there.”

When he spoke with me for DISH Network’s “DISH Studio,” I inquired if he received his honorary citizenship yet.

“It might be going in the other direction,” Bacon joked. “They might never want to see me again.”

In his latest venture to Beantown, Bacon plays FBI investigator Jackie Rohr. In the other two aforementioned films, he was not only playing a Bostonian but playing someone in law enforcement. But this role is a little different.

“The other two guys were stand-up officers,” Bacon recalled. “This guy is a real scumbag.”

“City On A Hill” is based on a fictional account of the “Boston Miracle,” a program aimed at curbing gun violence in the city during the 90’s. Bacon’s character is part of a corruption-filled agency. He’s forced to team with a Brooklyn District Attorney to take on a family of armed car robbers.

The series aired over the summer and is now available on-demand.

Stars converged inside The Theater at Madison Square Garden for a special benefit concert honoring what would have been John Lennon’s 75th birthday. A few of the musicians participating in the event along with the evening’s host, Kevin Bacon, stopped to chat with me on the red carpet. The concert aired on AMC Saturday, December 19.
