Interviewed by Christine Nyholm- May 5, 2009
Law and Order Criminal Intent has recently returned for their eighth season, airing on USA Network on cable television. Actors Vincent D’Onofrio and Katheryn Erbe recently took the time to take part in a conference call question and answer session, to which writer Christine Nyholm was invited. The two actors portray detectives in the New York Police Department Major Case Squad, in an intense drama that explores the psychological motivation behind the crimes.
Detective Bobby Goren (Vincent D’Onofrio) portrays the often strange and quirky genius detective, who can get inside the minds of criminals with his understanding of human nature and his own chaotic family upbringing. Detective Eames (Katheryn Erbe) portrays the senior officer and partner to Goren who understands and respects her sometimes difficult partner.
Law and Order Criminal Intent, a spinoff of the long running Law and Order series created by Dick Wolf, alternates casts on a weekly basis. The detective partners on the alternate weeks in Jeff Goldblum and Julianne Nicholson.
Goren and Eames
Detective Robert Goren went through some particularly dark storylines in season seven, including a stay in an abusive mental institution, the search for his nephew, the death of his derelict brother and a dramatic conclusion in which he was framed for the murder of his nemesis.
When asked what kind of effect the dark storylines have on him personally, D’Onofrio replied that it was hard for the first three of four years, when they were trying to make Criminal Intent distinct from the other Law and Order Shows, because it was like a 24 hour job. He went on to say that that was a long time ago and now the show is not so exhausting anymore. The hours can be long but that is part of the job. D’Onofrio stated that he just doesn’t bring Goren home anymore. The character no longer stays with the actor.
