Being a lovable louche might work for Keegan Deane (Greg Kinnear) a lot of the time on the FOX legal dramedy “Rake,” but sometimes, like in Thursday’s episode (March 6) featuring guest star Anthony Anderson, it backfires in a big way.
Zap2it has an exclusive sneak peek of the episode, in which Keegan defends a wrongfully accused man about to head to prison for life because of the three strikes rule. There’s one problem: He’s innocent.
Says Anderson, who plays Keegan’s innocent defendant, “[Keegan] has one trick up his sleeve. I can’t tell you what that trick is — you’re going to have to watch — but it’s a trick that he has to do because he’s sleeping with the mayor’s wife and the mayor has sent down this mandate that every case that comes across Keegan’s desk is supposed to be prosecuted to the fullest extent.”
Adds the actor, “You have to stay tuned to see how he gets me out of this, because he does get me out of this.”
“Rake” airs Thursday nights at 9 p.m. ET/PT after “American Idol.”
