Did You Know?


Jimmy Smits did not comment on his Season 6 departure from his role as Det. Bobby Simone, only saying "it was time to do something else" and agreeing to a five-episode story arc to properly let the character say goodbye. Speculation ran amok as to what was going on, but years later Smits told the whole story: he found series creator David Milch's creative and writing style so erratic and exhausting that he needed to take a break from both the show and acting altogether for a little while.
