Finding character in Intent

From BostonNow, 12.3.07
by Al Norton

Vincent D'Onofrio first burst onto the scene with his role in 1987's Full Metal Jacket and has been wowing critics and fans with his work from then on. Since 2001 he has played Detective Bobby Gorin on Law And Order: Criminal Intent. Recently Boston Now talked with him about the series, his career, and this Thursday's powerful new episode.

BostonNOW: Untethered is a very different kind of episode for Law And Order: Criminal Intent. What was your reaction when you got the script?

Vincent D'Onofrio: We had been talking about it for a long time. There was a show on 60 Minutes about something very similar and I had talked to Warren (Leight, the show runner) about it, conversations about how we might be able to do something like that, with me going into an institution of some kind undercover. Warren came up with the story about bringing my brother into it and turning it into a Criminal Intent. When I read the script it was great. It was great from the first draft, actually.

Thanks to Linda P, Paula N,!

I found the interview to be very informative. Very good interview, some things I didn't know took place with the actors creating the characters they portray

'....when I was tied down on the slab' *shudders* Wonderful to 'hear' Vincent, it's going to be one hell of an episode. Shame Boston Now didn't check how to spell Goren correctly tho'! ;0)

Apologies if you got this twice by the way. I hit 'publish' and everything went weird.....

I wish we COULD hear this, it would make it perfect.

Like Diane, I wondered how they could get the name wrong, and it would have grated but for the articulate replies of our lovely man.

Thank you to the admin and all who sent in this interview-just love when we get to read recent interviews with Vincent-well I don't know how much further they can go emotionally after Untethered but I guess we will have to wait and see-great to see about the wonderful working relationship with Tony Goldwyn-like him a great deal and glad that he was cast as Frank-

Great interview and just what was needed to allay anxiety about the episode. Now we can look forward to it as something experimental and challenging.

Well, I'm still anxious - I think Vincent is really going to do a number on us..... I'm taking Friday off and I won't even have seen it by then ;0)
