The Closer

June 12th, 2005 | Projects

Deputy Police Chief Brenda Johnson (Kyra Sedgwick) runs the Priority Homicide Division of the LAPD with an unusual style. Relying on her instincts and uncanny ability to read people, she draws confessions out of the toughest criminals. Together with her team of elite detectives, she helps solve the city’s most difficult cases. The series also stars J.K. Simmons, Jon Tenner, Corey Reynolds, and Robert Gossett.

Jason O’Mara played the recurring role of the elusive arsonist Billy Croelick on The Closer. Incendiary, to say the least, dangerously attractive, and very, very good at being bad, Billy Croelick is one of Brenda Johnson’s arch nemeses.

    Wish Bill could pay a visit to Brenda for The Closers last season–

    • Pam

      I so totally agree with you.  When The Closer FaceBook page asked fans who they would like to see return for the final season, I think Billy Croelick was the top requested character.  

  • Mary Friend

    I haven’t seen all of Jason’s guest appearances, but of the ones I have seen, these are by far my favorite! And yes, would love to see him in the last season..

  • Susan

    If it’s wrong to want to be with a guy who sets his dates on fire–then I don’t want to be right!   HA

  • Jason O’Mara

    I didn’t get around to saying how much I loved working with Kyra Sedgwick. So talented, professional and welcoming! Same goes for my old friend Michael Robin, the director and EP. He’s was the man responsible for hiring me in my first pilot many moons ago! Thanks Mike! And thanks everyone for watching these little video things…

    • Susan

      Any chance that Bill can make an appearance in the final season???
      Would love to see Bill pop in on “just plain Brenda”

        I certainly hope so Susan.  Jason you definitely did a great job as Bill.

    Hi Jason, Love these little videos you do. I also love the impromptu interviews as well. Love your work. Are you going to do one of these little videos about working on One for the Money?
