Esai: (On getting the role of Major Edward Beck in Jericho) I was reading for another character, Chavez. Before I could even give them an answer they said, "Forget about that, why don't you take a look at Major Edward Beck?" I read this character and I thought wow, what a wonderful role, what a great opportunity. I'd heard a lot of good things about the show, so I was honored and I said yeah. Accepted the role and went right in.
