Necessary Roughness returns next week to USA Network, kicking off their summer full of amazing shows. Necessary Roughness, for those who need to catch up (you still have time!) centers around Dr. Dani (played by the lovely Callie Thorne) who becomes the team psychologist for the New York Hawks football team. Her main client is TK (played by the super talented Mehcad Brooks) who at the end of last season suffered a life threatening injury. Add into the mix Nico, a former Navy Seal, who “takes care of things” for just about everyone involved in the team. Nico is played by Scott Cohen, who many will recognize from Gilmore Girls (he played Max Medina). At the end of last season, Nico finds himself in a bit of a conundrum with his personal life. I recently had the chance to visit the amazing set of Necessary Roughness, and Scott Cohen chatted with the media on set about what’s to come for Nico this season, how his relationship with TK is going to change a bit, and a possible love interest.
