That’s why he seems to excel at playing movie and TV cops. “Fifty-two-inch chest, 19-inch biceps, maybe it’s that, you know?’’ says the actor who was born in Edmonton but raised in Vancouver. Now a New Yorker, Basaraba memorably played desk sarge Richie Santoro on Steven Bochco’s short-lived Brooklyn South in 1997-98. And this fall, he’ll be back in uniform as patrol officer Ray Hechler, a veteran of the mean streets of L.A. in the new series Boomtown, airing on NBC and CTV. Basaraba says it’s funny but he never sees any crime when he’s riding the New York City subway. “I’m that kind of person, when there’s trouble, I don’t run,” says the six foot four actor. “Someone my size, people do look to you for the solution. When there’s trouble everybody looks over at the big guy to see what he’s going to do.” For example, there was that weekend a few years ago when he was walking through Times Square and saw some guy suck-er-punch another, knocking him cold in the gutter. “And I had to put the guy down, I wasn’t going to let him go. He was some crazy guy!” Turns out it was an NYU student high on PCP who decided to punch out a German tourist for no reason. And Basaraba rejects the idea that he did not behave like a typical New Yorker that day. “That’s not true. People in New York do get involved. They get involved all the time.” Basaraba, 44, also has a talent for mimicking accents, and has pretty much mastered and adopted the “New Yawk” patois. So much so that he once ended up on a U.S. TV Guide list of Brooklyn actors working in TV, along with Danny Aiello and Jerry Orbach. Basaraba is optimistic about Boomtown despite five years of 131-10th St., Brandon Phone: 725*2042 ^    -I.    pl    g*l    I    \    rn    i    -J    I    I    —I    aal Official Playing Piece BRAND0NOSUN Fill out your playing piece and enter at one of these locations: Participating Heritage Co-op Locations 646 - 6th Street, Brandon 1300* 18th Street.

He says that happened at a time when the networks were picking up only shows in which they were partners. And despite Bochco’s record with hit projects like Hill St. Blues and NYPD Blue, CBS cancelled the promising cop-ensemble series. (Airing    opposite    ABC’s Monday Night Football didn’t help, either.) But CBS liked him and in the interim he had signed a deal with the network and shot a couple more crime-themed pilots — Partners    with    Marg Helgenberger and Cold Shoulder with Kelly McGillis — but neither went anywhere. Neither did plans for a series of made-in-Toronto movies for the U.S. PAX network. “With each pilot, of course, you’re worth millions on paper,” he says. “So it’s hard not to fantasize about all the cars and homes you’re gonna be buying in the coming years.” Now he’s part of Boomtown, a stylish drama about cops, paramedics, reporters and politicians in the city of angels. It’s produced by NBC Studios and Steven Spielberg’s    SKG Productions, and executive produced by director Jon Avnet and another Canadian, Emmy-win- ning screenwriter Graham Yost (Speed, Band of Brothers). Also in the cast are Donnie Wahlberg, Mykelti Williamson and Jason Gedrick. Basaraba says despite optimism that he’s allied himself with some pretty good partners, there are many more factors than ratings that decide whether a series is going to make it. “There’s the policy of the network you’re with, the thing that you’re opposite, there’s current events, the climate of the country. I mean, you name it.” He says he doesn’t try to figure all that out, he just tries to do good work. But he likes the fact Yost has a gift for letting each character develop his own voice. There’s also the innovative style of the show, where the camera likes to back up and take another mn at events from the perspective of a different character. In the opening episode, for example, two cops pursue two suspects down an alley. The perps split in different directions and so do their pursuers. Viewers follow one pair, then the camera backs up and takes them down the other path. “We’re all in our own realities,” the burly actor says. “We share things and maybe we don’t. I don’t know what you see. You don’t know what I see, and that’s what Boomtown’s about. “And going off and following each person through their own separate experience of the same events is, I think, something that’s going to resonate for people.” air IM Best Breakfast in the City’ -J c i IM Mf if LUNCH SPECIALS starting at $3.99 nm?-'2Hummer jffl & SALADS I sterling at $3.99 1978 Queens Ave. 725-3234 it's back!
