"Repeat Offenders" - People With Multiple L&O Appearances

We used to have a thread on this, but I guess it got pruned.

There are many people who have appeared on L&O as different people in different episode.

I figured we could have a thread about that.

Here's a link to a site that has all the "Repeat Offerender" for the Orginal L&O up til this past season.

I haven't found one that lists the L&O crossover Repeat Offenders.

I know it bothers many people when the same actor is used for different roles, and sometimes it can be disconcerting, however, with the quality of actor that the L&O shows usually attract, I can live with it. It's especially effective when they take an actor who usually portrays the heavy and has them play a victim or innocent party. I think it's a little silly, however, when the same actor portrays 2 different judges. I'm not talking about cases when the judge is either the victim or criminal, but when they are simply the judge who sits at the arraignment, or grants a warrant, or oversees the trial.

In some cases, it seems these guest spots are some sort of audition for a permanent role. After all, four actors who have guest starred have become (or are becoming) regular cast members. S. Epatha Merkerson (L&O), Diane Neal (SVU), Bebe Neuwirth (TBJ) and Amy Carlson (TBJ). I'm not including Richard Belzer (SVU) or Candance Bergen (TBJ) because they're playing the same character as their guest spot.

I, too, wish there was a list including SVU and CI guest actors. I'm too lazy to do it myself.

Yeah, me too.

I actually find it funny, at times, when I recognize the actor/actress and remember the other role he/she played.

My boyfriend says that I should take that as a hint.

Oh, wow. I just visited the “Repeat Offenders” site trying to verify how many times Michael O’Keefe (who appeared as the father on tonight’s SVU episode) had previously appeared and what do I discover? Jerry Orbach guest starred on a season 2 episode of L&O before he became a regular. Not only that, his son Chris has appeared 3 times on the original L&O and was on the 1999-2000 season of SVU as Detective Ken Briscoe.

As for Mr. O’Keefe, according to imdb.com, he’s played 4 parts on the various L&O sereies:
1) "Law & Order" playing "Cally Lonegan/Professor Donald Lonegan" in episode: "Brother's Keeper" (episode # 11.21) 9 May 2001
2) "Law & Order: Criminal Intent" playing "Father Michael McShale" in episode: "The Faithful" (episode # 1.4) 17 October 2001
3) "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" playing "Officer Marcosi" in episode: "Counterfeit" (episode # 3.14) 25 January 2002
4) "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" playing "Ronald McCain" in episode: "Outcry" (episode # 6.5) 26 October 2004
