In an interview with StageRightSecrets (via YouTube), Anthony Anderson was asked what it was like working with Jeffrey Donovan. At first, Anderson pretended not to talk about Donovan. However, Anderson continued to joke about how curious an actor Donovan is. “But I’ve found that Jeffrey is full of questions,” Anderson said. “He’s a curious actor, to the point where it’s like, ‘Can we just get through this scene? You know you’re a detective. The reason you’re asking her that question, Jeffrey, is because you need to know where she is was at 3:30 on Tuesday. There’s nothing more.” He continued to make more jokes about Donovan’s alleged hubris.
Anderson left the show after just one season of revival and was replaced by actor Mehcad Brooks. In an interview with CinemaBlend, Donovan spoke about saying goodbye to Anderson. “He helped create a buzz for that first season, which I’m eternally grateful for, because when we walk the streets of New York, they’re screaming, ‘Anthony, Anthony and that other guy from ‘Burn Notice.'” So , You know, his notoriety certainly drew attention, and I’m very grateful for that.”
So, all jokes aside, it seems that the two actors are good friends who will miss each other.
