He's been on there 9 years? It doesn't seem like it's been that long.

wow, nine years...
I wonder what's next for him. I remember him being attached to a Marvin Gaye bio, but don't know whatever came of that. I wish him the best..

One less TV show for me to follow, well, unless he ends up in another one. re: Jesse L. Martin to leave Law & Order

The Marvin Gaye biopic looking like it's definitely set to go this time around... That's something to look forward to!

The Marvin Gaye biopic is still being worked on.... no worries -- it'll be out soon enough!

as for Jesse leaving L&O, well, please excuse me while I go over here and die. Thanks.

Is he going to do the Rent tour with Adam and Anthony?
He could do a soap, too.
PEACE.

Jesse L. Martin is my fav. Here's to hoping he moves on to something I'd actually be able to watch regularly.

Is this his decision or Dick Wolf's?

Why the hell are they replacing him with the "screaming-fat-guy-in-every-movie" Anthony Anderson? Now I'll have a reason to watch SVU instead, as if I already didn't with the Meloni on SVU.

I take it you didn't see Anthony Anderson on The Shield of K-Ville then?

Well, there goes my last reason to watch L & O, the original. I adore Jesse and think he is an extremely talented man. I know he will do great in whatever he choses to do next re: Jesse L. Martin to leave Law & Order
