When it came time to prep for his new role for Law & Order Los Angeles, Skeet Ulrich took it to the streets. The father of twins (you can only imagine my excitement when I found THAT out!), gave Breezy Mama the scoop on prepping for the part, how being a father made him all the more scared of the violence he’d seen while shadowing real life detectives and more.
What drew you to this role?
It was [Creator] Dick [Wolf’s] explanation of the character, of where the show was heading, of his confidence in me to do it and obviously the brand speaks for itself. I’ve never played a cop and it’s compelling to me to delve into sides that I don’t get to see that much.
Did you have to get in shape for the role?
I have twins and they keep me in shape [laughs].
Are you really?
