Larenz Tate is spotted on the set of the FX series Rescue Me last week in New York (September 1). You may recognize Tate from the 1992 classic Menace II Society, the movie that made him a star.
These pics are going to be the last you ever see from the set of the series. The series finale is actually airing tonight! The show's star Denis Leary told NBC New York that shooting the final episode was much tougher than he thought:
"I was trying not to cry because there were about 350 firemen on set that day. We were shooting in a church. Peter [Tolan, who co-created and executive produced the series with Leary] and I had to do a speech because we had to thank the crew and everybody for working on the show, so we wanted to be funny and we had to keep shooting that day. So we tried not to cry, but the girls were breaking down, and a couple of the firefighters – who are very big, tough guys – started to get teary-eyed and we were like 'Uh oh, this is going to get bad real soon.'"
