Los Angeles City Council President (and possible Mayor hopeful) Eric Garcetti will take a second spin in primetime tonight as fictional L.A. Mayor Ramon Quintero on TNT's drama "The Closer." Garcetti last trod the TV boards in the fall in the same role.

Tonight's episode just happens to be titled "Repeat Offender." We're pretty sure that isn't meant to be a reflection of Garcetti as actor.
