“One hundred episodes and counting,” Lennix said in reference to the thriller series. “It represents the most of any show that I’ve ever done. There might be a play or two where I did a couple 100 performances.”
It’s prestigious to be on a network show there’s not a lot of them left. It’s like playing for the Yankees.
He added, “This is the longest job I have ever had. It has given me a reason to be proud. I like that we’re part of this family and collaboration with NBC and Sony.”
Lennix said being on the show has given him a stable income, build a network and allowed him more time in New York City. He also enjoys the series and considers it his “artistic and commercial sanctuary.”
As far as the new season, the actor said that he doesn’t know much about what is going to take place in the script. “It’s delicious to be on the show and not know the answers,” Lennix teased.
