Angie Harmon Fights the Law

Rail thin Angie Harmon leans back in the chair of her desk – supposedly a  Boston homicide unit – on the Paramount set of the hit cable show “Rizzoli & Isles.” And though she looks more like a model with her luxuriant hair, she is getting more comfortable in what is undoubtedly her toughest role, as Jane Rizzoli.

“I think I am a homicide detective at this point,” Harmon says, only half joking. “I’m very comfortable with it.”

Still, none of that has helped her much when she’s pulled over in Los Angeles for speeding.

“If I get pulled over, I’m like ‘Let’s have some camaraderie’ and they’re like ‘No. Are you aware of how fast you were going?’”

As a result, she says she has relied on her feminine wiles and celebrity.

“There might have been a raised eyebrow,” she says. “There might have been an ‘Do you have a television?’”

It’s not that she has a particular problem with speeding, she says. “The problem is that I just keep getting caught!”

She says she tries to keep her police antics from home, her husbans, former NFL star Jason Seahorn and her daughters, whom she calls “The Horn and the Hornettes.”

“Rizzoli & Isles,” which just began its second season strongly, with 6.4 million viewers for its second show last week, nearly as high as the ratings for the accompanying “The Closer.”

A little more humor will be injected into the show this season, its producers say, and more use of the characters, which in addition to the other character in the title, Sasha Alexander as medical examiner Maura Isles, includes Lorraine Bracco as Jane Rizzoli’s mother. Bracco, familiar from her roles in “GoodFellas” and “The Sopranos” baked cookies for visiting critics.

“She’s cooking all the time,” Alexander says.

“Rizzoli & Isles” runs Mondays at 10 p.m. on TNT.
