Jimmy Smits “taking head-on Arizona headlines in immigration reform”

By Marilyn Beck and Stacy Jenel Smith

HollywoodNews.com: Jimmy Smits’ forthcoming “Outlaw” series isn’t wasting any time getting into controversial territory. “We are taking head-on Arizona headlines in immigration reform,” reports series costar David Ramsey

He reports that the team is shooting its third episode (including the pilot) of the NBC drama now. “We are talking about immigration reform in a very interesting way. Garza has some interesting opinions on it,” he adds of Smits’ character, a Supreme Court Justice who leaves the bench and goes back to practicing law as an attorney on high-profile cases.

Ramsey doesn’t want to spill details on the episode – nor on an episode already in the pipeline that has to do with gay rights. But he does make clear, “Some weeks you’ll see a more conservative view, and some weeks a more liberal view. Ultimately, what Jimmy’s character wants is to get to what is just. He was led to leave the Supreme Court because the system didn’t work, whether conservative or liberal.”

He acknowledges, “Yes, there’s an element of fantasy in having a Supreme Court justice come down from his lofty position and work for the little guy – but I think the audience will forgive that, and buy into the dream.”
