Gaston known for his role on Jericho often plays detectives and cops on film and TV, and says people mistake him for a real life cop all the time, especially in the Big Apple.
With a solid, six-foot-three build, Gaston says people spot him on the NYC subway and automatically assume hes with the NYPD.
Hes convinced that when riders see him, those who normally wouldnt pay their subway fare are intimidated into paying.
He says, Theyre afraid of getting busted by me for bailing on the fee! Its really funny, actually.
Gaston plays up his officer-like demeanor by remaining quiet the entire time, but he may speak up sometime soon.
He laughs, Im probably worth a lot of money to the citys MTA [Metropolitan Transportation Authority]. Im helping them make money because people are finally paying up!
Catch Gaston in his latest flick, Hurricane Season, hits theaters this March.
