Vincent DOnofrio and Kathryn Erbe play no- nonsense detectives on the classic cop drama, and according to the partners against crime, their on-screen characters do more than entertain.
According to DOnofrio, immigration officers are huge fans of the show, and have even used his characters craftiness to make successful seizures of suspects a procedure called hits.
DOnofrio says, I had one guy in Australia grab me and say he got hundreds of hits because of watching our show.
And while theyve definitely earned their cop cred, the actors admit that although theyve met many fans in the force, the real-life cops arent bending any rules for them.
DOnofrio says, They do what they can do, but Im not going to be the actor that says cops do us favors!
But Erbe adds, I get help with my passport!
Law & Order: Criminal Intent airs tomorrow (Oct. 4) on USA.
