Creator Dick Wolf sure knew he had a good thing going with the original Law & Order series. After the show had been on air for nine seasons, he introduced Law & Order: Special Victims Unit which made household names out of Mariska Hargitay and Christopher Meloni. And that was just the beginning. Over the next few years, Wolf added Law & Order: Criminal Intent (2001), Law & Order: Trial by Jury (2005) and Law & Order: LA (2010). There was even a movie spin-off: Exiled starring a Law & Order original, Chris Noth. But what entry in the franchise is your favorite? Did anything prove better than the original?
Jake Austin Walker, who plays Daniel’s spunky, sympathetic younger half-brother Jared Talbot, talks about the family dynamics on the show (and behind the scenes), his own experience with bullying and when we can hear his next single (he’s really good!).
Q: Jared’s fascination with his half-brother’s case is touching, but it also freaks out Daniel (Aden Young). Did you really have a file of information about the case that you studied?
A: Oh, yeah–on the day that Aden shot that scene, they asked me about the folder and what I wanted in it; it’s real. Jared researched it, like a comic book or a movie he just can’t get enough of. Personally I think he raided the basement of their house and got all the old newspaper clippings from the case that his mother had hidden to try to put the bad memories away.
Q: Does having siblings in real life help you tap into the dynamics with your half-siblings on Rectify?

Benjamin Franklin once wrote: “The idle man is the miserable man.” Personally, I wonder if Franklin even knew that many idle people, because he was so busy inventing libraries and glasses and dime stores, when would he have even had time to chill with anyone, idle or otherwise?

Over 20 seasons, Law & Order racked up over 50 Emmy nominations but despite the endless cameos by the likes of Julia Roberts, Elaine Stritch, Samuel L. Jackson, Claire Danes, Elisabeth Moss and so on, the prize the series took home most consistently on Emmy night was for cinematography (1993, 1997, 1998). As for its cast, the lead and supporting actors alike, while periodically nominated, never got the prize. Sam Waterston nominated three times — 1997, 1999 and 2000 — never won. Neither did Michael Moriarty, nominated in 1992, 1993 and 1994. But which of the show’s lineup most deserved a statuette. Vote on the nominees below.
