TV Lawyer Shies Away From Parental Pointers

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The newest Law & Order cast member almost threw the book at his own TV career.

Linus Roache is a British-born actor who’s just joined the Law & Order team as Chief Assistant District Attorney Michael Cutter, but Roache says he almost dropped the gavel on his small-screen dreams.

Roache’s father, William Roache, has been on the British soap opera Coronation Street for 47 years, and Linus says, “I suppose with my dad being on the longest running soap opera, I had a natural fear of TV. But I’ve come full circle and now I love it!”

And while Linus could certainly benefit from studying his dad’s devotion, he hasn’t asked his prolific pops for any pointers.

Linus says, “I haven’t had the time to chat with him about it yet. I’ll have to call him at Christmas.”

The season premiere of Law & Order airs January 2 on NBC.
