Best Cop on “Law & Order

I’ll bet you didn’t see this coming.

Last week I asked Rittenhouse readers to choose the actor who best portrayed the role of assistant district attorney on the NBC television series “Law & Order.” In that poll, which ended yesterday evening, Jill Hennessy won a 38-percent plurality in a five-way contest.

In this week’s poll we continue to plumb the upper brackets of the popular culture by asking which actor you liked best among those portraying members of the New York Police Department on the same series.

Your choices, in alphabetical order, are: Benjamin Bratt (as Det. Reynaldo Curtis), George Dzundza (Sgt. Max Greevey), Dennis Farina (Det. Joe Fontana), Dann Florek (Capt. Donald Cragen), Jesse L. Martin (Det. Ed Green), Carolyn McCormick (Dr. Elizabeth Olivet), S. Epatha Merkerson (Lt. Anita Van Buren), Chris Noth (Det. Mike Logan), Jerry Orbach (Det. Lennie Briscoe), and Paul Sorvino (Sgt. Phil Cerreta).

The poll, posted in the sidebar at right, will take your votes until the evening of Wednesday, July 7, though depending upon the results there subsequently may be a run-off vote.

[Post-publication addendum: Don’t forget to enter the Rittenhouse Healthcare Contest, posted June 30 (see fifth item).]
