Dennis Leary defends his TV show ‘Rescue Me’

 

IN a world in which apologies from public figures flow freely, you might admire Denis Leary's refusal to say he's sorry. Conversely, you may think that he's been spending too much time with the volatile firefighter he plays on FX's "Rescue Me."

Loyal viewers will recall that last summer, Leary was at the center of an uproar over a now-notorious episode that culminated with Tommy Gavin, the tortured lout the actor portrays with such gusto, forcing himself sexually on his estranged wife, Janet (Andrea Roth). Reviewers and bloggers savaged the producers for making it seem as if rape wasn't really a big deal; after the encounter, Tommy apologized — for ripping his wife's shirt.   "I'm just reporting what I know to be true," the actor said.
