This fall, Detective Ed Green steps up to become Top Dawg; the senior partner now that Joe Fontana has moved on from the 2-7. Green will be partnered with a younger detective.
And for the first time ever on the mothership of the 'Law & Order' franchise, that partner will be a woman.
As Ed Green, Jesse L. Martin came in as Lennie Briscoe's partner as the franchise ramped up with the spin-offs 'Law & Order: Special Victims Unit' and 'Law & Order: Criminal Intent'. To help launch both of those series, Detective Green has crossed over to them both, as well as to the short-lived 'Trial By Jury'.
So for the month of August, during this year in which we are saluting 'Law & Order', we of the High Council of Toobworld Central, all both of me, proclaim Detective Ed Green to be the latest inductee into the Toobworld Crossover Hall of Fame.
