Actress Callie Thorne hides behind her TV characters

Callie Thorne has often found herself just one of the boys. On “Homicide: Life on the Streets,” she held her own with a crew of cops. On “Rescue Me,” she was the gutsy paramour among a crew of macho firemen. Now on USA’s “Necessary Roughness,” she plays the psychotherapist to a pro football team who clearly calls the plays. But Thorne admits it’s all an act.
