He’s [Steve] a lot of fun to play but he’s also a challenge because I’m very conscious of not having him become a two-dimensional character… it would be so easy to get stuck in that ‘All right, let’s go!’ kind of super-character thing and I have no interest in doing that.

I think viewers are going to be surprised at how thoroughly they enjoy the show on every level. I really do believe this show delivers character, crime and comedy in perfect balance.
