Subject: TV Shows within the "Law and Order Universe"

Written By: whistledog on 07/04/11 at 10:42 pm

For those of you who watch Law and Order: Special Victims Unit, you know that the Actor/Comedian Richard Belzer plays Detective John Munch.  Belzer first played this role on the 90s TV series Homicide: Life on the Street, and has also done cross-overs with Law and Order and Law and Order: Trial By Jury

As well, Belzer has done guest spots on several other TV shows as John Munch:
♦ The X-Files
♦ Arrested Development
♦ Jimmy Kimmel Live!
♦ The Wire
♦ The Beat
♦ 30 Rock

He also appears in the 1995 movie 'A Very Brady Sequel' as an unnamed detective who acts similar to Munch, though it's never been officially confirmed if it is Munch.  



Me and my buddy at work have been trying to figure out other TV shows within the "Law and Order Universe" that you can connect to through actors from other shows who have done guest spots, and through that, other connecting shows.  We've come a long way on this, but there may be more.  Is there any that we have missed?  LOL

NOTE:  You can also link several shows via 'The Simpsons', but animated shows have been ruled out because the characters appear as voice only.  And you can link several shows through 'The Price is Right', but that show consists of the actors and models playing themselves

Not exactly the same, but still...

In the Perry Mason episode "The Case of the Notorious Nun", actor Tom Bosley can be seen as Father Chris DeLeon - clearly based on his character Father Blane Dowling in the Father Dowling Mysteries.
The main character in said episode is Sister Margaret (portrayed by Michele Greene). Sister Margaret is obviously based on Sister Stephanie 'Steve' Oskowski of the Father Dowling Mysteries, although that character was portrayed by Tracy Nelson.

I think I understand...

Characters from "The Beverly Hillbillies" visited "Petticoat Junction" and the "Petticoat Junction" folks popped up on "Green Acres."

Also, I know several Disney shows had cross-overs...

"Wizards On Deck with Hannah Montana"-Cast from Wizards of Waverly Place and Hannah Montana took a cruise on the ship from The Suite Life on Deck.

There's been two or three episodes of CSI where the New York guys go to Miami or they all go to Vegas or whatever

Boston Public (FOX) and the Practice (ABC) both David E. Kelley shows. The Practice's camryn Manheim as Elenor Frutt and Michael Badalucco as Jimmy betuli made appearance on Boston Public and I wanna say that chi mcbride appeared on the practice


Cross over Buffy/Angel eps.  Too many cross over appearances to mention. Well not really (just easier to do at the computer) but aside from the obvious main character cross overs there was Julia Lee  she played "Chantrelle" in season one's Lie to Me ep. She returned in Season three's premeire ep Anne as Lily. She was the same character just a runaway who adopted different names as her needs changed. In that ep Buffy had been kicked out of the house by mom, she'd just killed angel and didn't want to be Buffy anymore so she worked as a waitress and went by the name Anne.  She saved Lily from hell and returned home. Lilly decided it was time for a new chapter in her life. Julia lee later showed up I. LA on Angel as "Anne" (same character using buffy's name because it resonated strength to her)

There was a two part cross-over between CSI and Without a Trace.

On ER Susan had to go to New York and find her sister and Susie she enlisted the help of Third Watch's  & Bosco (scenes played out over third watch and ER so it was another cross-over ep.

Third watch also crossed over with Medical Investigation (I think that was the shows title with Kelly Williams) anyway there was an anthrax scare in NYC and the CDC like medical investigative team came out to investigate. That also played out over a two ep story arc on both shows

Probably doesn't count but it's funny.  There was a car commercial for he Carrera and the tag was Lease a Carrera followed by someone asking who's Lisa Carrera?  Chicago Hope then created a character named Lisa Carrera  ;D

Did you mention the Criminal Minds Spin-off ep for Suspect Behavior? Also kristen vangeness plays Penelope Garcia on both shows.  Well played since CM: SB got canceled after one season.

Um there's an ep of friends where docs from ER play docs.  Don't think they had names it was George clooney and I wanna say noah Wylie but that's the one p I haven't seen in about 7 yes so I could be wrong.

George reeves plays himself playing superman in an ep of I love lucy

What about star trek next gen where they enter the original star trek universe in the trouble with trebles ep?


I know there's more I'll be back

Charmaine applies to and gets accepted into hillman and becomes a regular on a different world

GH's LUKE & LAURA appeared on Roseanne as L&L but that was just in a tag and it was to promote their return to Gh but it was awesome.

The conners rode cross country in a Winnebago and wound up in the audience at the pilot taping for a tv show that followed Roseanne (and starred Tom Arnold)

On the Nanny the nanny somehow ended up on The Rosie O'Donnell show
The Banks & Will Smith ended up on Oprah


The angels were working a case in Vegas and Charlie wanted them to work with a local detective but they were too busy to meet him. They were bummed when they met him in the end and found out he was hot  ;D  he was also Dan Tanna of Vega$


How about Golden Girls & Empty Nest?

Oh yeah and Who's the Boss with the spin off of that models show with Leah Remini and Halle Berry?


Facts of Life was spun off from Different Strokes and Gary Coleman made a few appearances the first season (not to mention the whole DS cast helping Mrs G move in in the pilot ep)


Back to charlie's angels- they had a case aboard a cruise ship (two actually) but the second time the ship was the Pacific Princess and the Capt was named Stubbing, the cruise director was Julie, the yeoman purser was Gopher, doc and issac were there too

All good ones, but the idea is to come how link them to a show that can be traced back to either Homicide: Life on the Street or Law and Order.


Other than the fact that practically every actor,ever, has appeared on law & order how did you link that long list of yours back to law and order?


Oh I see what you did now.  Yeah danoota's right. You have way too much time on your hands  ;D

Remind me next year at paleyfest when I'm spending hours with 20+ of the biggest tv fans I know and then I'll have time to do this. Lol

Victor Garber was in a show called Eli Stone with Loretta Devine who played a teacher on Boston Public which crossed over with The Practice......  


okay Jeff Kober played two roles on Buffy. Once in "Helpless" he played a deranged vampire released to kill buffy on her 18th birthday. The he played a magical drug dealer (meaning he dealt magic like drugs  ;D ) named Krac (in the season 6 ep "Two to Go")  he of course played Dodger on China Beach with Marg Helgenberger who is now on CSI and was part of those cross over eps between CSI and Without a Trace

^ That totally does, but it cannot be connected through the "Law and Order Universe :P

:D



why not? I totally connected them thru law & order....in my subsequent posts.  :P


btw I also remembered that


Julia roberts guest starred on an ep of law and order
she also guest starred on an ep of friends
Jennifer aniston was in that scene of friends with George clooney
who was on facts of life which was spun off from different strokes  (that covers that post)

also....

george clooney was on ER, on which Erica Gimpel appeared as a social worker
she guest starred on an ep of Cosby show which spun off A Differnt World (guess that keeps my cosby show post intact as well)


and.....

george Clooney was on show called e/r 
another actor on that show was Conchata Ferrell she played a nurse
Conchata Ferrell also played a nurse in the "Go Fish" ep of Buffy the Vampire slayer which now makes my Buffy references relevant as well


also in that episode of "Go Fish" was Wentworth Miller (Prison Break) who guest starred on SVU last season or the season before! BAM!



and.....


going back to the george clooney link.... george clooney was on er with Sherry Stringfield who played susan who had to go to new york to save her neice along with the help of some cops from Third Watch who later worked wtih the team of medical investigation which starred kelly williams who was on the practice whiched crossed over to boston public....

carrying that link further--- camryn manheim from the practice was on ghost whisper with Jennifer Love Hewitt who was on Party of Five with Matthew Fox and Noah Wylie




Matthew Fox was on  Lost with Henry Ian Cusick who played Desmond......he also had a riveting guest starring role on two eps of L&O



and

carrying that link further--- camryn manheim from the practice was on ghost whisper with Jennifer Love Hewitt who was on Party of Five with Matthew Fox and Noah Wylie .

Noah Wylie was on the Nine with Chi McBride (Boston Public) and Kim Ravier (third watch)
Bobby Cannavale was also on Third Watch and he went on to be on Cold Case with Kathryn Morris who's dated a guy played by Kenny Johnson
Kenny Johnson was on Saving Grace with Gregory Cruz who was on an ep of criminal Minds (so that links he criminal minds and suspect behavior posts)
Also on Saving Grace was Lorraine Toussaint who played Shambala Green on L&O she also starred on Any Day Now with Annie Potts who guest starred on L&O as well.....and Annie Potts also had a recurring role on Joan of Arcadia which links her Joe Mantegna (who is on Criminal Minds)  but also on Joan of Arcadia was Amber Tamblyn who recently had a recurring role on House.  one of her first roles was as Emily Quartermaine.... Emily was best friends with Lucky Spencer (played by Jonathan Jackson)  Lucky is the son of Luke and Laura  (so that covers the roseanne stuff) 

and.... Jonathan Jackson was on Terminator the Sara Conner Chronicles which also starred Summer Glau
who had a guest starring role on Big Bang Bang Theory featuring Johnny Galecki who was on Roseanne.... but more importantly Summer Glau was on Firely which was created by Joss Whedon (My Master) who created Dollhouse which starred Eliza Dushku who was also on Buffy with Sarah Michelle Gellar who wase on All My Children with Susan Lucci who


....guest starred on an ep of Hot in Cleavland with Wendy Malick (who was also in Just Shoot Me) (Jane Leeves who was in Fraiser) Valerie Bertinelli and Betty White who was on the Mary Tyler Moore show......as was Valerie Harper who played Rhoda Morgenstern. She left MTM to go play Rhoda on her own show Rhoda with David Groh (Joe) who has played various characters on various three different eps of L&O

The whole idea is to connect the shows through fictional character only given the show is still within a fictional world.

Example:  Ed Begley Jr. played Dr. Erlich on St. Elsewhere.  He also played that same character in an episode of 'Homicide: Life on the Street, a show starring Richard Belzer, who played Detective John Munch, a character he also played on 'Law and Order' and 'Law and Order: SVU'


Thanks for playing though.  You get a set of Lee Press on Nails as a consolation prize :D :P ;)


I still don't get it.

Apparently some people have played the same character on various tv shows and Jason and his buddy have found some obscure way to connect them to L&O. I don't have that much time on my hands.  Plus I like my game  ;D

I want to start by saying this page is awesome. However 30Rock wouldn't can't because it is a show within a show, same goes for Murphy Brown and Seinfeld.
