Kelley’s Heroes: Jason Kravits

How has your life changed since joining the show?

“People see me so differently now. I used to be seen as the funny guy, now it’s that nasty D.A. guy. It’s nice in a way, because I can get away with being a real jerk sometimes. People almost expect it of me! I try not to take advantage of that too much.”

What do you admire most about your character?

“His tenacity and passion about justice. I think people misunderstand him. They think that he’s just competitive and vindictive but he’s really just trying to put the bad guys — or at least who he thinks are the bad guys — where they belong. He doesn’t discriminate: He thinks all defendants are guilty and defense attorneys are cheaters.”

What part of your character would you like to learn more about?

“What makes him so passionate, I think. It was touched on in my first season, but left alone since then.”

Any interest in being a lawyer in your next life?

“Part of me says yes, because I too have a real passion for justice, but I also know that in real-life lawyering is more tedious than we make it out to be. I mean there can’t be a case-of-the-century every week, right? Plus, I get more respect from people saying I’m an actor. Not much more, but more nonetheless.”
