Lt. Kenny 'Lou' Shea

John Scurti plays "Lt. Kenny 'Lou' Shea." Though his health teeters in the balance, Lou takes on a godfather role for Tommy's children. Tommy entrusts Lou with emotional testaments for his loved ones, but when Lou breaks Tommy's trust, their relationship takes a final turn for the worse.

Career Highlights may have called Scurti “the most underrated actor on television,” but that doesn’t mean the experienced actor hasn’t gotten attention from the press. In past seasons, Entertainment Weekly’s Gillian Flynn commended Scurti’s performance on the show, while USA Today’s Robert Bianco and The Bergen Record’s Virginia Rohan listed him among her choices for Emmy® nominations in the best supporting actor category. 

Scurti has shown acting versatility, with roles in the sketch comedy film Dirty Movie, starring Christopher Meloni; Steven Spielberg’s action-packed War of the Worlds; Mona Lisa Smile, opposite Julia Roberts; and The Ref, which featured a then up-and-coming lunatic named Denis Leary. A common fixture in television, Scurti has made guest appearances on Law & Order: Trial by Jury, Monk, Hope & Faith, Ed, Law & Order and Sex and the City. Also a writer, Scurti received a “Story by” credit for “DNA,” an episode from Rescue Me’s first season. He also has writing credits for “Bitch” from season two; “Twilight” from season three; and “Cycle” from season six.
