Saturday Morning Man: Linus Roache!’t know about you, but it seemed like no one would ever be able to fill Sam Wasterston’s shoes as the trial prosecutor on Law & Order once his character got promoted to District Attorney.

But then came along the sexy and smart Linus Roache as assistant DA Michael Cutter and the show remains as strong as ever.

You wouldn’t know it by watching the show, but Linus is a British actor who is a past member of the Royal Shakespeare Company and spent much of the first part of his career on the stage.

The 45-year-old star was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for his performance as Robert Kennedy in the miniseries RFK and in the 1994 film Priest, he played a man torn between his call as a conservative Catholic priest and his secret life as a  gay man.

After Prierst and starring in the BBC wartime drama Seaforth, Roache gave up acting for awhile and spent 18 months in India where he discovered spiritual meditation, according to his IMDB profile.

But he eventually returned and has been quite busy. His credits include the short-lived NBC series Kidnapped and the feature films Pandaemonium, The Wings of the Dove, Beyond Borders, The Chronicles of Riddick, Batman Begins, Hart’s War, The Forgotten, Broken Thread and last year’s Yonkers Joe.

One Remark

  1. As a person recovering from religious brainwashing, I was hesitant to watch Priest, but after a number of years, I did. It really is a well done movie and Linus Roache was superb. I don’t watch L&O much anymore, but watched it at the end of last season. I was really impressed with Mr. Roaches performance and the way he didn’t fill Sam Waterston’s shoes. He made the role his own. He wasn’t playing the same character or even attempting to emulate the same character. It revives what had become a boring, repetitive program.
