Sometimes when actors leave a popular television show they go on to careers in the movies and become even more successful. George Clooney, who got his start on TV would be a good example of that. Of course, sometimes the opposite happens and they try movies and it doesn’t go so well. David Caruso, I’m talking to you. Of course, it may also be the case that they just miss their friends and colleagues from a particular show and want to come back.
We don’t really know the reason but Benjamin Bratt is heading back to Law and Order to help commemorate the show’s 20th season — and we’ve got video where he discusses it to share with you today. Bratt, who played Detective Rey Curtis on the NBC series from 1995-99, will reprise his role in an episode set for later this season. The episode will feature him reuniting with his former boss, Lt. Anita Van Buren (S. Epatha Merkerson).
NBC hasn’t set an airdate for the episode yet. In the meantime, check out the interview after the jump.
