Law & Order Characters


The American television police procedural and legal drama Law & Order (1990–2010) follows the cases of a group of police detectives and prosecutors who represent the public interest in the criminal justice system. Known for its revolving cast, the original six actors to star in the program were no longer on the series when it ended in 2010, though Dann Florek has reprised his role as Donald Cragen for the spinoff series, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, since 1999. The longest-serving regular cast members include S. Epatha Merkerson as Lt. Anita Van Buren (1993–2010), Sam Waterston as EADA/DA Jack McCoy (1994–2010), Jerry Orbach as Detective Lennie Briscoe (1992–2004), Steven Hill as D.A. Adam Schiff (1990–2000), and Jesse L. Martin as Detective Ed Green (1999–2008). Actors portraying psychologists on the show include J.K. Simmons as Dr. Emil Skoda (1997–2004, 2010) and Carolyn McCormick as Dr. Elizabeth Olivet (1991–2009). Steven Hill was the last member of the first-season cast to leave the show, though he did not appear in the series' pilot episode. Leslie Hendrix as Medical Examiner Elizabeth Rodgers (1991–2011) is the only character from the second season to have appeared on the show through the end of its 20th and final season, though she was not a regular character. Hendrix continued her role on Law & Order: Criminal Intent until it ended in 2011.
