RESCUE ME ... TONIGHT
Fire drama's red-hot siren
[A] lot of the stuff that comes from Thorne's mouth on "Rescue Me" (Tuesdays at 10 p.m.) can't be repeated here, yet it fits perfectly with her character Sheila, whose firefighter-husband died on 9/11 and who is now sleeping with - and for a while was pregnant by - her husband's best friend, Tommy Glavin (played by Denis Leary).
"This is literally my favorite role," Thorne said. "The role of Sheila is like nothing else. There's no holds barred with her."
Thorne's character smokes, drinks, has a potty mouth, undergoes wild mood swings, yet can be playful, emotional and sexy. Paired with Leary's equally emotionally broken firefighter Glavin, the couple can be combustible.
