Jennifer Beals discusses her new character in “Ride-Along”

By Marilyn Beck and Stacy Jenel Smith Jennifer Beals, about to jump back into series TV stardom with production cranking up on her forthcoming Fox “Ride-Along,” says that her new character is “even tougher than Bette – much, much tougher than Bette.” That is, Bette Porter, the lesbian art gallery owner she portrayed for six seasons on Showtime’s “The L Word.”

The “Ride-Along” character is “the first female superintendent of the Chicago Police Department.” Is she gay or straight? “Straight, so far,” answers Beals. “We’ve only shot the pilot.” She’s been doing research to prep for the part including real ride-alongs with cops “to see how they handle people, and how people see them. It’s definitely a whole new world for me – a very, very masculine world, and she’s trying to maintain her femininity within the context of that world.”
