DAVID CARUSO

De­tec­tive John Kelly, NYPD Blue

Toronto Sun - - SHOWBIZ -

Most peo­ple for­get that the long-run­ning cop se­ries fea­tured David Caruso as the first part­ner for Den­nis Franz’ Andy Sipow­icz. But af­ter a break­out first sea­son, Caruso de­manded a hefty raise, which fell on deaf ears. “He never said it to me di­rectly, but the sim­ple truth was, Caruso felt he was too good for tele­vi­sion,” pro­ducer Steven Bochco wrote in his mem­oir. In the end, the volatile ac­tor was writ­ten out of NYPD Blue four episodes into Sea­son 2. When his movie ca­reer failed to take off, he went on to star on CSI: Mi­ami.

Mean­while, NYPD Blue lasted an­other 10 sea­sons.
