Richard Belzer fired from Law & Order: SVU

Good riddance. He was hideous looking and a non-actor.

by Anonymousreply 4610/19/2013

He's not fired. He's in his 60s and he looks it. Cops are retired by then. He's been phoning Munch in for years. The character usd to be interesting, had a philosophy, a bunch of ex-wives, was off-beat. Now he's just an old guy who days, "Oh yeah? Well, you're under arrest. Come on."

He's always been a fug.

by Anonymousreply 210/10/2013

They've been inching him out for years, so I'm not surprised. Why did they even have him in the credits, if you so rarely saw him? I'm sure he's got it socked away. Maybe Melissa Leo can throw him a bone?

If that's the case then Dann Florek should go, too.

by Anonymousreply 510/10/2013

Oh, please, R1. If it wasn't his choice to leave then he was fired.

by Anonymousreply 610/10/2013

Where does it say it wasn't his choice? He's still going to make appearances.

by Anonymousreply 710/10/2013

He had (has?) cancer and lives in France. My feeling is that he probably wanted to leave anyway, for health reasons or otherwise.

by Anonymousreply 810/10/2013

R8, he had testicular cancer in 1983. If it hasn't killed him by now, it's not going to. Doesn't mean that he's immune from anything else, but he's out of the woods with regard to that one.

AS an actor, he was SLIGHTLY better than Ice-T.

Oh, and by the way, Ice-T Loves Coco.

by Anonymousreply 1010/10/2013

Bummer, him and his black suits. He just needed a scythe and he was the angel of death.

by Anonymousreply 1110/10/2013

What I liked about him was that he was a link to Homicide and that was such a great show.

by Anonymousreply 1210/10/2013

He actually dresses like that in real life. You can't miss him walking down the street on the west side.

Testicular cancer is one of the most curable cancers. It's basically 100% curable unless someone is demented and lets it spread. My BIL is schizophrenic and was found to have testicular cancer when an NP palpated huge lumps in his abdomen. He had tumors all over the place. He was cured.

by Anonymousreply 1310/10/2013

For the last few years he has had almost nothing to do.

At times he hasn't appeared in 5 straight original episodes.

by Anonymousreply 1410/10/2013

Better than Ice-T (who isn't?) and gay-friendly Mr Belzer. Don't be hatin' on him!

by Anonymousreply 1510/10/2013

Ive seen 70 year olds who look better than him.

by Anonymousreply 1610/16/2013

R16 He nearly is 70.

by Anonymousreply 1710/16/2013

Did anyone else notice that except for last season's finale, he and Dann Florek didn't appear in any episode together last season? The budget must be threadbare.

by Anonymousreply 1810/16/2013

It wasn't just Belzer's age, perhaps. He also has a burgeoning career as a writer and speaker for conspiracy/UFO areas (interestingly mirroring his character's quirks) and it may be either he wanted to go with that or the show people thought it was a distraction.

by Anonymousreply 1910/16/2013

He looks like a Satanist to me.

by Anonymousreply 2010/16/2013

OP is a huge drama queen who dissembles. Belzer wasn't fired. He's the one who wanted to leave, and he agreed to " leave the door open" to Munch returning once or twice.

by Anonymousreply 2110/16/2013

I like old quirky characters like him. Shows with only bland guys we would like to fuck would be boring.

by Anonymousreply 2210/16/2013

He makes me horny.

My favorite Richard Belzer story is from the 90s, Gilbert Gottfried was in the hospital for a burst appendix and Richard came to visit him but just sat in Gilbert's room and read the newspaper without a word.

by Anonymousreply 2410/16/2013

You're funny R23.

by Anonymousreply 2510/16/2013

My sexual fantasy is having a 3 way with Richard Belzer and Abe Vigoda. Wouldn't that be hot? Wouldn't that be fucking hot??

by Anonymousreply 2610/16/2013

Jesus R26, you are on a roll. YES IT WOULD BE HOT!!!!!!!!

by Anonymousreply 2710/16/2013

Fuckin' Law & Order: SVU is STILL on the air?!

by Anonymousreply 2810/16/2013

He'll never make "guest appearances." He was fired. He's gone. Forever. Thank God.

by Anonymousreply 2910/16/2013

He is out on a book tour for his book on the Kennedy assassination. His book is doing well and it's been highly praised especialy in JFK research circles. I kinda think he'd rather be doing book related work right now.

He may have been fired but the timing is too odd for me to 100% believe it.

by Anonymousreply 3010/16/2013

Why does he wear dark glasses all the time?

by Anonymousreply 3110/16/2013

He's very outspoken.

Wow, R29, Law & Order: SVU must be a huge part of your life.

by Anonymousreply 3310/16/2013

I liked that he always represented an anti-fascist viewpoint countering Stabler's right-wing BS.

by Anonymousreply 3410/16/2013

OP continues to be a liar. He'll be back a couple of times this season as an investigator for Raul Esparza, which they already set up.

Why do you have so much invested in the idea of him being fired, OP?

by Anonymousreply 3510/18/2013

I don't, R35. I just think he's disgusting to look at and wouldn't know a credible acting choice if it struck him in his extra creepy pockmarked face. I also gather he's a huge pain in the ass to work with.

by Anonymousreply 3610/19/2013

Jesus, the shallow queens on this board.

His looks have nothing to do with the character he portrayed. Sorry that everyone can't look like the love child of an A&F male model and a girl from Hitler's Lebensborn project for you to approve of their appearance.

by Anonymousreply 3710/19/2013

Did he kneel down before the spicy uncut Cuban pinga of Danny Pino before his big exit?

by Anonymousreply 3810/19/2013

Did anyone see his last episode with all of the references to his role on "Homicide"? They even had Clark Johnson from that show, and in the last scene where he's cleaning out his desk, he answers the phone with "Homicide".

And I'm sure you're a beauty queen. It's always the least attractive that point out other's flaws just like here, the one with the smallest penis point at celeb photos and scream Tinymeat! Makes them feel better about themselves.

by Anonymousreply 4010/19/2013

It was cool that they gave him a nice send off. I never watched Homicide but I knew the character came from there. Nice that they referenced that. Also kind of oil that they had Munch's ex wives at hs farewell party.

Belzer is a nice guy. Ran into him a few years ago at a restaurant on the UWS, very funny and down to earth. As opposed to Mariska who was kind of a cunt when I met her.

by Anonymousreply 4110/19/2013

I hope he shows some hole before his departure.

by Anonymousreply 4210/19/2013

Do you think Chris Meloni and Danny Pino will have a swordfight in his mouth for the finale? What are the main similarities and differences in the penises of Meloni and Pino?

by Anonymousreply 4310/19/2013

Meloni is circumcised and Pino isn't, R43.

by Anonymousreply 4410/19/2013

Does he really live in France?

by Anonymousreply 4510/19/2013

Yes. He lives in France.
