Best Law And Order Detectives

Facebook Share Twitter Share LinkedIn Share Pinterest Share Reddit Share E-Mail Share

1. Olivia Benson (Mariska Hargitay) No other Law & Order show — or any other crime drama in the history of television — has had a central character like Sgt.
2. Elliot Stabler (Christopher Meloni) For years, it was impossible to think of SVU without Christopher Meloni's intense performance as Elliot Stabler. His sudden departure at the end of Season 12 is still an unforgettable shocker and fans have long hoped he would finally come back for a proper goodbye.
3. Odafin "Fin" Tutuola (Ice-T) Where would SVU be without Ice-T's one-liners? It simply would not be SVU as we know it today. Fin came in at the start of Season 2 and has been an irreplaceable part of the show.
4. Nick Amaro (Danny Pino) Rollins and Danny Pino's Nick Amaro were introduced in the same season, as replacements for Stabler. Thankfully, both Amaro and Rollins became their own characters, who brought in their own fans.
5. John Munch (Richard Belzer) The cynical Munch, played to perfection by Richard Belzer, debuted on NBC's Homicide: Life on the Streets, which was set in Baltimore.
6. Amanda Rollins (Kelli Giddish) At a time when a home life is reserved for Benson, Kelli Giddish's Amanda Rollins is one of the few detectives allowed to have one seen on the screen.
7. Brian Cassidy (Dean Winters) Dean Winters' Detective Brian Cassidy only appeared in the first six episodes of the series, and was portrayed as a newcomer to the SVU division.
8. Dominick Carisi Jr. (Peter Scanavino) Carisi is the most recent addition to the "law" side of the series, making his first appearance in the Season 16 premiere.

4. Briscoe/Green: 1999-2004. Heresy? Maybe. But as much as we enjoy the Briscoe/Logan chemistry, there's something extra special about the Orbach/Martin years.
5. Briscoe/Logan: 1992-1995. This is where legends start. After a couple of old-cop tryouts with Dzundza and Sorvino, the franchise found its wry, bruised soul with Jerry Orbach's Briscoe.
6. Lennie Briscoe (Jerry Orbach)/Rey Curtis (Benjamin Bratt): 1995-1999. Bratt gave the performance of a lifetime in weekly installments. Rey Curtis had a calm (and incredibly handsome) exterior, but underneath, the devout Catholic suffered from a turbulent mix of emotions.
7. Max Greevey (George Dzundza)/Logan: 1990-1991. It all starts here. Greevey's paternal feelings for (and occasional ethical distrust of) Logan set the stage for all the detective couplings that followed.
8. Lupo/Kevin Bernard (Anthony Anderson): 2008-2010. The final cop duo ever broke the typical world-weary old cop/hotshot young cop L&Omold. Cynical, baritone-voiced Lupo had a genial, even bromantic rapport with more serious Bernard.
9. Phil Cerretta (Paul Sorvino)/Mike Logan (Chris Noth): 1991-1992. Paul Sorvino's two-season stint as the gruff — yet charming — determined Ceretta (who switched to desk duty after being shot while undercover) cemented the veteran/upstart dynamic the detective half of the series would sport for decades to come.
10. Green/Cyrus Lupo (Jeremy Sisto): 2007-2008. Even if you never quite bought Green as a senior detective, you had to enjoy the new energy brought to the franchise by Sisto's Lupo, who pretty much single-handedly rescued the ''Law'' half of the show from the dark post-Orbach period.
11. Fontana/Green: 2004-2006. It was always going to be difficult to replace Jerry Orbach, but it didn't help matters that Fontana's flashy style was decidedly anti-Briscoe.
12. Joe Fontana (Dennis Farina)/Nick Falco (Michael Imperioli): 2005. Det. Nick Falco briefly partnered up with snazzy dresser Fontana while Green recuperated from a gunshot (and Martin filmed Rent).
13. Nina Cassady (Milena Govich)/Ed Green (Jesse L. Martin): 2006-2007. Lt. Van Buren (S. Epatha Merkerson) was not a big fan of Cassady when she was assigned to be Det.
