Dann Florek will be departing Law & Order SVU in an episode to air in January 2014. His character, Captain Don Cragen, has to retire, in keeping with the NYPD mandatory retirement regulations which mandates retirement before one's 63rd birthday. As of this writing, Dann has been credited on more Law & Order brand episodes than any other actor in the brand’s history (this includes his 3 year stint with Law & Order). He is one of my all time favorite Law & Order and Law & Order SVU characters - and he will be greatly missed!
Here’s Dann’s tweet on the subject:
Friday was the last day 4 Cragen/Florek. It was a sweet send off! But he'll live on in syndication land 4 evah!
