In groundbreaking producer Dick Wolf's latest series, Law & Order: Criminal Intent, Vincent D'Onofrio ("Men in Black") stars as Det. Robert Goren, an exceptionally bright homicide investigator with well-honed instincts that match up favorably with his criminal quarry. Likewise, his partner, Det. Alexandra Eames (Kathryn Erbe, "Oz") brings an independence and stylish edge to her work that meshes well in tandem with Goren.
Their commanding officer, Capt. James Deakins (Jamey Sheridan, "Shannon's Deal"), is a competent but ambitious political animal who knows how to survive and thrive behind the scenes. All of them often butt heads with the no-nonsense District Attorney Ron Carver (Courtney B. Vance, "The Tuskegee Airmen"), a stickler for the crucial legal details.
