BLACK AND WHITE TITLE CARD: In honor of the end of Law & Order: Original Recipe, Alan is asking readers to come up with a L&O "dream cast." Your rules--have to be characters who appeared at some point in the role you have put them in (no Det. van Buren or ADA Schiff), and Wiki has a helpful chart--other than that, be creative. There are a few selections that no one's going to fight over--anyone want to argue for Cragen over van Buren as Lieutenant, or for Lenny Briscoe not to be Senior Detective? That second cop slot is a hard one (Ed Green? Rey Curtis? Mike Logan?), and while I expect general consensus on Claire Kincaid as one of the two ADA's, and that Jack McCoy fits into pretty much everyone's lawyer list somewhere, the third wheel is tough.
Personally, I went with van Buren, Briscoe, Green, DA McCoy, and ADA's Cutter and Kincaid, but I'm willing to be persuaded differently.
