In the movie, Minority Report, a trio of PreCogs predicted crimes and the would-be perpetrators were arrested before they could commit the crime, but that changed when it became very apparent that the future could be changed (and Cruise’s character prevented the very crime he supposed to have been committing). In the new FOX series (Mondays, 9/8C), one of the now adult PreCogs keeps trying to prevent murders but he’s only working with a third of the picture, which leads to his teaming up with Detective Lara Vega.
Recently, Wilmer Valderrama took an opportunity to speak with a group of bloggers/journalists about his role as Lt. Will Blake on Minority Report – the lieutenant of the precinct where Meagan Good’s Larta Vega is assigned. He talked about Blake’s history with Vega; his love of the tech (he really wants a jet pack!), and teased the deeper goings on that lie ahead for viewers.
