THE NEW CROP OF DETECTIVES & MORE
This Australian actor played one of the new detectives brought in near the show’s end: Det. Tommy McNamara. His character didn’t hit it off so easily or so fast with the black and Latino officers at first, but after a while, dude fit in with the tough team…for the most part. After the show, LaPaglia did shows like “Seven Days,” “The District,” had a recurring role on “Cold Case,” and most recently, showed up on a show called “The Slap.” His movie credits include A Beautiful Lie, A Borrowed Life, Final Sale, and The Hit List.
You might not remember her like that, but Ryan played Detective Nell Delaney, one of the new detectives on the show who popped up in season four. After her short time as a cast member ended, she did movies like Cold Hearts, Wet Hot American Summer, Justice, The Extra Man, and had guest roles on “Sex and the City,” “The Practice,” “Law & Order,” and more.
I’m sure you’ve seen this face before. Hopkins was one of the last detectives to join the show, in season four, playing Det. Alec Stone, the son of a crime family who decided to live a clean(er) life. After the show ended, Hopkins went on to star in an Alanis Morissette video (“Unsent”), did the shows “Jack & Jill,”and “Brothers & Sisters,” had a recurring role on “Ally McBeal,” and big roles on the shows “Swingtown,” and most recently, “Cougar Town.” I adore that show by the way. Anwho, he’s also been in the movies The Perfect Storm, Pretty Ugly People, The Insatiable, and he just finished Tan Lines.
Ford played Lt. Malcolm Barker, replacing, Lt. Cooper in the fourth season. His character was known for having folks play dirty to close cases. We talked about Ford in the Where Are They Now? for “Martin.” In Case You Missed It: After “Martin,” Ford did a wealth of TV work. Right after the show, he had a regular role as Lt. Malcolm Barker on New York Undercover, and appeared in a recurring role as Kim Parker’s father on “The Parkers.” He also worked on a show called “Who’s Got Jokes” from 2006-08 and just finished working on two films this year: The Ivy League and Unspoken Words.
