City on a Hill is an action crime drama series that was launched on Showtime on June 16, 2019. The series is conceived by Charlie MacLean, adapted from a tale by Hollywood A-list actor and director Ben Afflect and MacLean. The series features Kevin Bacon, Aldis Hodge, Jonathan Tucker, Mark O’Brien, Lauren E. Banks, Amanda Clayton, Jere Shea, Kevin Chapman, and Jill Hennessy.
Speaking to Parade, Kevin Bacon, 64, who plays John “Jackie” Rohr, a former FBI agent, was asked if it was fun to play his character ‘Jackie’ who is so “morally compromised”.
The actor responded: “When you first become an actor, you start to judge your roles based on the number of words you have. After a while, you know that’s not really it. I did quite a few things in a row where I was trying to challenge myself with little dialogue. With Jackie, here’s a voice that I heard right away. People think that because a character’s a bad guy, it’s more fun. I don’t believe that. What makes it fun is complexity, showing up and doing something that I haven’t done. It’s all about walking in someone else’s shoes.”
