Jerry Orbach is probably best known for playing Detective Lennie Briscoe on Law and Order. Before he got that gig, he played a defense lawyer on the show. I always figured that was the extent of his involvement with the world of crime until I watched a pretty forgettable B-movie called Cop Hater on Netflix last night and saw a 23 year-old Orbach playing a vaguely ethnic gang leader.

Gotta say, nothing wrong with that.
