Benjamin Bratt, who stars as a Mexican cartel boss in Snitch, cut his teeth working on the long running TV series Law & Order. Bratt has many fond memories of the program, including working with late actor Jerry Orbach.
“I learned a lot about acting and about life from Jerry Orbach,” says Bratt. “He quickly became one of my dearest friends. In spite of the age difference, he was one of the last old school gentlemen. He was a former song and dance man. Quick with a joke. Great with a story. I would tease him (that) we would eat lunch more often together than he would with his own wife because every day we worked together, depending on the location, we’d go out and grab a bite somewhere. And it always had to be fried calamari to start and then whatever else came along.”
