Playbill interviewd EB about his appearance in Time Stands Still--an ironic title given the recent CI cast upheaval.
This brief interview excerpt is very interesting:
Playbill.com: How did this role come about? EB: ...I could do it — I had finished up my 60 episodes of "Law & Order: Criminal Intent" — so I said, "Yeah."
When I do the math: 22 episodes S6 + 22 episodes S7 + 16 episodes S8 = 60 episodes. That total implies ZERO episodes for S9, which further implies EB isn't in "Puntland" at all, which further implies...
But then we have this following interview excerpt:
Playbill.com: So you're leaving "Law & Order"? EB: I am returned long enough to be departing, as are a couple other actors. That'll be in March, in a special, blockbuster episode.
Departing? As in dearly departed? The plot thickens. Stay tuned.
