The Commish

Emmy Award winner Michael Chiklis stars as Tony Scali, a former Brooklyn cop now the Police Commissioner of a small upstate city. But for Scali, this is no desk job. He's a tough yet compassionate boss, a loving husband and father, and a hands-on law enforcer with an unorthodox style of bending the rules.

    The character of Tony Scali was supposed to be in his late thirties. Michael Chiklis was actually 28 years old when cast as Scali, in part because he looked much older than his real age. When Chiklis lost weight during the course of the series, the network, fearing that such weight loss might negatively effect the ratings, reportedly had Chiklis stuff his clothing to appear older and heavy set. Chiklis was also discouraged from shaving his hair off to look still older.
