Other cast members included Simon Oakland as Lieutenant Abrams, Wendy Rastattar as Joanne Shay, Elizabeth Reddin as Cindy Shay, Michael A. Salcido as Officer Paul Sanchez, and Ray Vitte as Officer T.J. Epps.
Did you know that originally before the series The Shield aired on FX, it was going to called Rampart? Shortly before airing, the name was changed due to the fact that outside of the L.A. community, no one really knew what Rampart meant thus naming it The Shield.
