anthony anderson on law and order

Law and Order has been renewed for a record breaking 21st season! This would make it the longest running prime-time drama, passing Gunsmoke. The series began in 1990 and starred Chris Noth and George Dzundza, and has had a ton of cast changes throughout the years, including such talents as Paul Sorvino, Jerry Orbach, Benjamin Bratt, Jesse L. Martin, Fred Thompson, and Dennis Farina.

The series currently stars Jeremy Sisto and Anthony Anderson on the detective side, with Sam Waterston, Alana De La Garza, and Linus Roache on the DA side.  Waterston has been in 358 episodes of the series as A.D.A. Jack McCoy, and has also crossed the character over into Law and Order: Special Victims Unit, Law & Order: Trial by Jury, and Homicide: Life on the Street.

I love Law and Order, and I’m glad to see the original continue into the future. It is one of the few shows that I don’t have to watch regularly, but I can jump in at any time and enjoy it. It doesn’t matter if it is a new episode, or a rerun, the stories speak for themselves. Happy to see it continue? Wish it would just end already?

Tonight, Law & Order begins its 19th season! The season half of last season saw a shakeup in the show’s cast with Jeremy Sisto’s Detective Cyrus Lump taking over the lead detective role from a departing Jesse L. Martin, who portrayed Detective Ed Green for nine years and close to two hundred episodes.  Detective Lump got a new partner in Detective Kevin Bernard (Anthony Anderson – pictured above).

In tonight’s all new episode, the team is looking into the death of a Wall Street stockbroker, but when they are unable to get sound evidence, DA Jack McCoy (Sam Waterston) has to make one of the “most controversial arguments of his legal career.” The episode airs at 10pm on NBC.
