While Law & Order: Criminal Intent‘s Detective Goren hits the couch to address his demons, partner Alex Eames will take a small personal journey of her own this season, via the introduction of her dad, TVLine has learned.

Law & Order: CI Exclusive: Cynthia Nixon Set For Episode Inspired by Spider-Man Musical

“We meet her father, which is a joy to me,” L&O: CI vet Kathryn Erbe shared with me Monday night at USA Network’s upfront presentation. Playing the Very Important Parent is Raymond J. Barry, who most recently has played father to Timothy Olyphant on Justified.

Erbe says she and Barry share “very, very meaty scenes” when a case leads Eames and Goren to the former’s hometown of Inwood. As for whether dad and daughter get along, all Erbe would tease is, “It’s complicated!”

  • Wow!

    He sure does get around!

    Lily Rush, Raylan Givens, and now Alex Eames. Any other law enforcement personnel needing a dad?

    Maybe Agent Hotchner needs to drop his kid of at Grandpa’s so he can have some “me” time and actually smile for once.

    Or we could find out that Horatio Caine’s fetish for sunglasses comes from his father’s blindness!

    • He was also the crooked senator on The X-Files, and played Agent Vaughns’s father- in -law on “ALIAS”. He looks more working class and no nonsense in the photo above ,which is how I pictured Eames’ Dad. It’s about time we saw where she came from. Is there a member of Bobby’s family that we didn’t meet ? No. It’s Alex’s turn.

  • I can totally see this guy as Alex’s father. Now we know where she gets her toughness from.

  • I hope that wasn’t an accidental spoiler to tonight’s season finale of Justified (“who most recently has played father to Timothy Olyphant on Justified.”)

  • Raymond J. Barry is also a talented painter and the son of the little old lady who wore the big hat in the wedding scene of (the original) Arthur.

  • Undeniably consider that which you said. Your favourite justification seemed to be on the net the simplest thing to take note of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed at the same time as other folks think about worries that they just do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the highest and also outlined out the entire thing without having side effect , other people can take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thank you|
