Call) who's got the city's drug addicted mayor Christian Davidson (Creator/CarlLumbly) in his pocket. Other main characters are Jimmy's friend Danny Rooney (Jason Gedrick), who spent 3 years in prison rather than rat him out, his lawyer Theresa Conners (Debrah Farentino), and his enforcer Mickey Kinnear (Mike Starr), and Quinn's new partner Detective Frank Collero (Richard Portnow).
