'Surviving Jack' star Christopher Meloni looks back on 'Svu,' 'Oz' & more

Christopher Meloni has had the kind of varied, almost schizophrenic, and very vivid acting career in which the first thing you see him in would likely color your perceptions of him for years to come. I first encountered him in the sixth season of “1st & Ten,” a raunchy ‘80s HBO comedy about a pro football team whose cast at various points included Delta Burke, Shannon Tweed, O.J.

Dean Winters To Star In CBS Series ‘Battle Creek’, From Vince Gilligan & David Shore

28 February 2014 7:00 PM, PST | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Oz alum Dean Winters is set as one of the two leads cast in Battle Creek, CBS’ high-profile series from Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan and House creator David Shore. Also cast in the project, from Sony TV and CBS Studios, are Aubrey Dollar and Edward Fordham Jr. It centers on Detective Russ Agnew (Winters) and FBI agent Milton Bradley, who have very different worldviews but are teamed up to clean up the semi-mean streets of Battle Creek, Mi. Agnew is a smart, tough, impatient, and pragmatic guy who gets results but whom no one wants to partner with because he prefers to cut through any nonsense, and this has earned him a reputation for being mean and gruff. Related: 2014 CBS Pilots Dollar plays Holly, the office manager who shares mutual attraction with Russ. Fordham plays chubby detective Aaron Funkhauser. They join recently cast Kal Penn and Janet McTeer. Creator »
