It can't be! Detective Lennie Briscoe
, also known as Jerry Orbach, may leave the original "Law & Order" to create a spinoff called "Law & Order: Trial by Jury." Detective Lennie Briscoe has been cleaning up the scum of New York City for 12 years. I remember when his daughter was killed by a drug dealer
. It was very sad. I remember when the defense said he was part of a "Jewish conspiracy" to frame an anti-semite
. The boy on trial was convicted. I remember when he was paired up with Mr. Big and was concerned with getting killed because Chris Noth had already lost two partners. In the end they were great friends. So many good times with Briscoe.
How can they take my favorite character out of the show? You don't make a spinoff with a main character, you make it with a small character, like that new blond lawyer. Dammit, Dick Wolf, don't mess with magic! Pretty soon you're going to end up like CSI.
