Brooklyn homegirl Rosie Perez is set to return to television with Geena Davis. She will play Geena’s cop partner, Lorna, on the new CBS cop drama Exit 19. Geena Davis will play a homicide detective and single mom. In other Rosie Perez news, she recently told the Associated Press that her sex scene with comedian John Leguizamo was “very awkward” while they where shooting the indie flick, The Take.
“This is not my first time working with John, we are friends, I’ve known him very long. … It was very easy working with him. We have an easy dialogue and between each other there is no ego, no competition,” the 43-year-old actress told The Associated Press in a recent interview.
“It was in the sex scene between husband and wife that things started to go bad. … It was the hardest scene, very difficult,” she said. “I respect him so much and he respects me so much. I know his wife, he knew my husband and introduced me to my boyfriend. It was very awkward. Like brother and sister having to do a sex scene.”
The Take directed by Brad Furman, opens Friday in New York and Los Angeles.
