Inside Track -

Vincent D'Onofrio, who is currently on hiatus from "Law & Order: Criminal Intent," happily reports of his show, "We're coming back next season, and there will be a new captain. We'll try to make it as interesting as we can and go a couple of more seasons or more, just depending on how much the audience likes it." Come Friday (6/2) he can be seen in "The Break-Up" as one of Vince Vaughn's brothers. Says D'Onofrio, "My character is not very good socially, and actually, in real life I'm not very good socially, either."

Behind The Scenes Of 'Law & Order'

May 18 - Video clip on WNBC

:: Aired on an NBC affiliate station - local to NYC and surrounding area.

Jane's New York
May 10, 2006

NEW YORK -- The "Law & Order" brand is New York's greatest ongoing entertainment export. For 16 years, "Law & Order" has taken over the streets of New York to create one of the most enduring dramas on television.

With unprecedented access, "Jane's New York" takes you behind the scenes and on location of the three "Law & Order" shows: "Law & Order," "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit," and "Law & Order: Criminal Intent." You'll see how the shows are created and produced. You'll meet the stars, directors and producers, as well as Dick Wolf, the man who single-handedly created the brand. And you'll follow the location team, which has the critical responsibility of finding the perfect spots to shoot different scenes from the three dramas.

While the show has a host of big name stars and has hosted countless major guest stars over the years, the brand considers New York City the biggest star of all. In short, "Law & Order" is a New York phenomenon.

Airs Wednesday, May 17 at 7:30 p.m. on NBC 4

An overhaul made to 'Order'

Excerpted from Variety
Mary 7, 2006

Wolf preps major changes as NBC woes drag down franchise.

Law & Order supremo Dick Wolf can't wait for the Peacock to get back in fighting form. So he's readying his own plan to pump up the brand.

"There are going to be casting changes and additions on all three shows," Wolf tells Variety. In addition, he is pushing the network to make scheduling shifts to boost the "L&O" trio, which he says remains NBC's most potent -- and profitable -- primetime player.

....The "L&O" skein with the toughest task, however, has to be Sunday night's "Criminal Intent." In addition to taking on "Desperate Housewives" and young-male magnet "Family Guy," since January, the show has had to battle HBO's "The Sopranos." The results have been predictably grim. "CI" is the lowest-rated of the "L&O" bunch, with ratings down 29% over two years. To shore up "CI," Wolf is pushing NBC to take the show off the net's fall sked.

"I hope they put us on in January," after NBC's new Sunday night football franchise wraps, he says. "My fondest hope is 'SVU' and 'Law & Order' are back on Tuesday and Wednesday at 10, 'CI' is on in January at 9 on Sunday."

Wolf thinks "CI" would benefit from airing a full season of episodes without repeats, particularly since "Desperate Housewives" tends to air a fair number of reruns during the winter and spring months.

NBC Entertainment prexy Kevin Reilly won't commit to anything before NBC's May 15 fall schedule announcement, but he seems poised to grant Wolf his "CI" wish.

Long arm of the law reaches out to comics

Excerpted from Calendar Live - Los Angeles Times
By Barbara Serrano, Times Staff Writer
May 5, 2006

For many TV fans, NBC's long-running "Law & Order" franchise conjures up images of perverts and murderers, wisecracking detectives and self-important D.A.s trying to put the bad guys in jail.

But guest-starring roles for Stephen Colbert, Lewis Black and "Saturday Night Live" regulars such as Darrell Hammond too?

....Hammond, a stand-up best known for his Al Gore and Bill Clinton impersonations on "Saturday Night Live," has appeared on "SVU" and "Criminal Intent," most recently as a bully who sexually harasses an employee.

"I feel like a clown in the sense that I am," he said. "I wear a lot of paint on my face and fake noses and ears. So to think that even for a second that I could act alongside these great actors is thrilling."

It can also be intimidating. There he was in a tense scene, Hammond recalled, with Vincent D'Onofrio (Det. Robert Goren) getting in his face like he always does with the bad guys, trying to pin a rap on him.

"When he's yelling at you, it's so real," Hammond said. "You just want to go, 'Dude, I'm on "Saturday Night Live." People don't talk to me like that.' "

"Welles"review ~ SF Chronicle

SFIFF: Vincent D'Onofrio revisits Orson Welles
May 1, 2006
By G. Allen Johnson, Chronicle Staff Writer

...Anyway, D'Onofrio must have been tickled by his one-scene turn as Welles, too. He has made a 30-minute short film, called "Five Minutes, Mr. Welles," and it plays at the San Francisco International Film Festival as part of the compilation of shorts entitled "Domestic Dramas" (there's only one showing left: Wednesday, May 3, at 12:30 p.m. at the Kabuki)...

...Yo Vince -- I loved the film. I can't wait for your next turn as Welles, perhaps in another decade. Like the fat 1958 Welles setting up the famous crane shot of "Touch of Evil" near Venice Beach? Keep hittin' the spaghetti there, big guy.
