On The Defenders, Bromance Matches Courtroom Appeal

The Defenders co-stars Jim Belushi and Jerry O'Connell both remember the first time they met.

"I met him once. Ironically, he kissed my wife [Rebecca Romijn] in a commercial," O'Connell tells us. Belushi adds, "It was a fantasy sequence where she was coming in to buy a car and I had a fantasy where we kiss."

"So when I first met him, I had a little bit of a bone to pick with him because my wife soon caught mono after that," O'Connell jokes.

The exchange may seem like a bad first impression, but this ribbing is a perfect example of the pair's central on-screen friendship.

"Our show really centers on this kind of 'bromance' between those two guys," executive producer Greg Walker says. "Very few shows explore male friendship and this show does it openly and with a lot of fun. They give each other a hard time, they ride each other. It's a real relationship."
