Entertainment Tonight will tonight rerun their visit to the set of New York's "Blood, Sweat & Tears", where they get the inside scoop on the episode from the stars.
The show talked to front man Gary Sinise (Mac Taylor) about the plot of the episode, and why it sends Taylor and Bonasera to clown court. "We find a box on the beach, a very small box. Inside is a body and it leads us to the circus," the actor told the show. "There are several suspects: clowns, gymnasts, trapeze artists -- there's all kinds of things going on in this episode -- a lot of fun stuff."
Co-star Melina Kanakaredes (Stella Bonasera) concurred and admitted that her love for the circus made the episode more fun than work. "We're so pleased. It's an amazing place, I feel like I get to play with such fun people every day. Gary's a great guy, and he's an incredible actor to work with. Our crew is phenomenal and with 200 extras and so many people running and doing so much it's running very smoothly. It's been a lot of fun."
Both actors, however, had reservations about particular circus acts. "I remember taking my son to the circus and he never wanted to go back," laughed Sinise. "He saw the clowns as not too funny." Added Kanakaredes, "The only thing that scared me a little were the tigers!"
