It's been 25 years since Law & Order first hit the airwaves, making avid fans and amateur sleuths out of us all.

Though the groundbreaking cop drama centered on some of New York City's most gruesome crime stories, when stars Dann Florek, S. Epatha Merkerson, Carolyn McCormick and Jill Hennessy think back on the show's early days, all they can do is laugh.

In celebration of the show's September anniversary and WE TV's current Law & Order Binge-A-Thon, PEOPLE sat down with the four actors, who dished on everything from cracking jokes during gory corpse scenes to scary run-ins with real life criminals.

'Yellow King Theory': Watch the Web's Funniest True Detective Parodies

Originally posted 03/09/2014 04:40PM

With its obsessed fan base, wild-eyed monologues and sprawling Lovecraftian mythos, HBO neo-noir True Detective is ripe for satire. As the series gears up for its finale Sunday night, a number of online jokers have gotten their parodies out at exactly the right time.

Our favorite is Onion veteran David Sidorov's "Yellow King Theory," which pokes fun at the insane brand of hyper-analysis the show has inspired in its fans.

Dennis Farina, of Law & Order, Dies

Originally posted 07/22/2013 02:00PM

Dennis Farina, a familiar TV and movie face who played roles on both sides of the law, died Monday morning in a Scottsdale, Ariz., hospital. He was 69.

His rep, Lori De Waal, tells the Associated Press that Farina had suffered a blood clot in his lung.

A Chicago native from a large Sicilian-American family, Farina served for 18 years on the Chicago police force's burglary division before turning to acting when he was 37.

While his most famous role was probably that of Det. Joe Fontana on Law & Order from 2004 to 2006, Farina racked up an impressive list of credits that included the movies Saving Private Ryan for director Steven Spielberg, That Old Feeling with Bette Midler, Get Shorty with John Travolta, and Midnight Run with Robert DeNiro.
