... Q) Please tell us what is new this season on "Major Crimes" and with your character Dr. Morales.

Jonathan Del Arco: "Well, thus far (we are into episode six) in the filming process there are no major headlines for Morales. And even though I'm now a series regular, my job has not changed much and neither has Morales'. But as the second half of the season progresses, I'm told that there is more character development for him/me so I'm excited to see what other dimensions we see. As for the show, I have to say that the writing thus far has been stellar and there are some great character relationships and stories developing. I think the fans are going to be really happy with the quality of the show. I don't want to give too much away, but it's gonna be good guys!"

Q) What originally made you want to be a part of the show?

Jonathan Del Arco: "Well I really felt "The Closer" had a lot more life in it and there was still so much more I wanted to explore with Dr. Morales. I mean, before "The Closer" I had worked with James Duff on a previous show "The D.A." in which I also played the coroner, even though I'm phobic of dead bodies. I guess that's kind of funny! Anyway, James is the best writer in Hollywood so I always jump at the chance to say his words and he's a dear friend. So, what better job to have right? I had also worked with Mike Robin on "Nip/Tuck" where I did a three episode arc and like James he's also the best at what he does which is directing and producing. He just brings out some of my best work and makes me feel very safe exploring some of my darker sides. So, the Duff/Robin combo plus having a steady job where both great reasons to continue on the journey and working with the cast and crew who are like family was also a perk..."
