Garcetti, the Council District 13 representative who lives in Echo Park, has remained reluctant to say whether he will or won’t run for mayor. But, at least for a brief time tonight, Councilman Garcetti will be known as “Mayor” when he appears as the leader of Los Angeles during an appearance on “The Closer” on TNT. Here’s a description of the episode courtesy TNT:
“The murder of two paramedics leads the LAPD and the FBI on separate investigations on a case that could be the precursor to a major terrorist attack. But Brenda fights to remain a step ahead, even though she’s forced to work with the counter-terrorism unit’s Chief Tommy Delk, who happens to be one of Brenda’s fellow finalists for the job of Chief of Police.”
The mayoral role is a promotion for Garcetti, a member of the Screen Actors Guild who had a few minor acting roles as a child. Earlier this season on “The Closer,” Garcetti appeared in the background during a scene in which his father, Gil Garcetti, a former Los Angeles County District Attorney who now serves as a consultant for the show, played a police chief.
