Mid-season FOX series Backstrom closed the north square of the Vancouver Art Gallery yesterday to film Portland Serious Crimes Unit Detective Nicole Gravely (Genevieve Angelson) and District Attorney Steven Kines (Ben Hollingsworth) emerging from what will be a Portland courthouse in the rain. Gravely is second-in-command to self-destructive Everett Backstrom (The Office’s Rainn Wilson) at the Serious Crimes Unit and not only tasked with dealing with Backstrom’s boorish behaviour, she has to make sure his unorthodox methods hold up in court too.
