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.
