Benjamin Bratt is looking forward to do some 'cleaning up' tonight when the second season of "The Cleaner" premieres on A&E. From sweeping the streets from any kind of addicts to assisting high profile individuals to do a recovery, Bratt's character William Banks will face one of his toughest challenges in the season opener.
In "Hello America", an old friend Michelle Durham seeks William's help to get her high-profile national news anchor husband Davis, clean. But the news anchor is a national spokesperson for recovery, so William has to be especially discrete in his methods. And the news anchor's wife has an illness that forces William to confront his own personal problems.
Michelle is portrayed by Jayne Brook while Davis is played by Gary Cole. But they are not the sole attractions for this season. The show brings back Whoopi Goldberg as William's sponsor for three episodes and lines up other prominent actors.
On Monday, June 22 AceShowbiz participated on the press conference with Bratt and Warren Boyd whose real life story is the basis of the show. One interesting question was thrown by TV Megasite, regarding what to expect in the second season. In his answer, Bratt mentioned that they have an incredible rooster of guest stars including Joe Don Baker, Shirley Jones, Michael Beach and Rebecca Gayheart.
Other than that, both Bratt and Boyd answered questions which range from the Boyd's personal experience to what the second season lifts as issues. Concerning the latter, Bratt insisted fans of the show should "tune in" because "you'll be pleasantly surprised at the new and improved 'Cleaner'."
The new season of "The Cleaner" premieres on June 23 on A&E at 10/9c. Watch the 10 minutes preview of the first episode, "Hello America".
