The Last Night on the Beat
I haven’t been a regular watcher of “Law & Order” since Dick Wolf shoved Chris Noth out the door, but even I will be watching this one.
Wednesday is Jesse L. Martin’s final episode as the revolving “L&O” cast door starts up again.
It’s hard to believe that it’s been nine years since Martin first teamed up with the legendary Jerry Orbach, taking over for Benjamin Bratt. Since then he’s teamed up with Dennis Farina, Milena Govich and this season, in a great stroke of casting, Jeremy Sisto.
Now, Martin heads off to fill his dream role as Marvin Gaye in the new independent film, “Sexual Healing.” And don’t be surprised to see him back on the Great White Way someday soon (He was an original cast member of “Rent.”).
For now, though, we’ll enjoy him one last time on the New York beat…
“Law & Order” airs Wednesday, April 23rd at 10 p.m. on NBC. You can watch a preview here…
