It may not be among the most popular shows on television but Law & Order: Criminal Intent is probably one of the better written. The series is a brilliant magnifying lens into the human condition. Vincent D'Onofrio Det. Robert Goren is one of the most complex characters on the screen. Another bonus: there's an endless supply of hottie New York City actors, such as Kevin Phillips, who guest starred in the third season episode "Mad Hops." He played a high school hoops phenom who was unwittingly at the center of a recruiting scandal.
A gayish recap and a few more pics below.
Kevin (Ben Watkins) just wants to lace his brand new kicks ...
But these jealous bitches ...
Wanna be ballers? Shot-callers? Brawlers?
None of the stars of the team get along, too many divas. Why do these boys always wear boxers?
Yes. That's the proper way to restrain a hotshot baller.
Kinda feelin' that angry, pumped up look. Hmmm.
Ben's mother is played by the lovely and talented Suzzannne Douglass, veteran of movies such as How Stella Got her Groove Back, The School of Rock, and many tv shows. Muah!
Like the shirt and tie action. This is the day that Ben signs his scholarship papers. Goodbye 135th St, Hellooo Des Moines.
"I've never done that before, Rod!"
