He also played John Munch in Law & Order which had several crossover episodes with "Homicide", an episode of "The X Files" (1993), an episode of The Beat, an episode of Law & Order: Trial by Jury, the season 3 finale of Arrested Development and an episode of The Wire.

Even for a show and a franchise that is notoriously parsimonious with personal information about its characters, that is an extraordinarily long time for basic personal information to be withheld about a regular character on a TV series (by contrast, both Detectives Stabler and Benson were established as heterosexual during the show's first season through dialogue and subplots about Stabler's marriage and Benson's dating habits).
