BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) - Time has humbled Don Johnson.

It’s been 30 years since his TV cop hit “Miami Vice” went on the air and the actor says he’s changed since then.

“I was a brash, terrified, young man with a big ego and a lot of ambition,” Johnson, now 65, told a panel of TV critics Wednesday.

“I would like to think that since then I’ve let those things that don’t really serve you kind of fall to the wayside, and really for me, it’s about the joy and enthusiasm that comes with being given the opportunity that comes with being here to do this.”

Johnson was promoting his ABC drama, “Blood & Oil.” It’s set against the biggest oil find in American history in a North Dakota town, where a millionaire is said to be made every day.

If it sounds like “Dallas,” Johnson said it’s not.

“The only thing we have in common is tangentially oil is a part of it,” he said.

The cast includes Chace Crawford, Scott Michael Foster and Amber Valletta.

“Blood & Oil” premieres Sept. 27 at 9 p.m. EDT.
