Over at Lee Goldberg's blog, he's picked up on a story from FOX News that I would have missed because, well, I'd rather be doing just about anything else than watch FOX News.
Apparently, in the wake of Annie Parisse's abrupt resignation from 'Law & Order', creator Dick Wolf can't find a replacement for her because of the rumors that the show may not be coming back.
But here's the crossover kicker: Apprently S. Epatha Mekerson walked off of a "crossover" episode with the sister show 'Criminal Intent' because she didn't like the way her character was being written.
The woman has been playing Lt. Van Buren for about fourteen years or more. If anybody knows how the character should be portrayed, it's her.
