    Det. Ed Green (Jesse L. Martin)

    Jesse L.
    Martin
    as Det. Ed Green

    Born in Rocky Mountain, Virginia, and raised in Buffalo, New York, Jesse L. Martin plays the compulsive and passionate Det. Ed Green on TV’s longest-running drama series.

    “The great challenge in playing a character like Eddie Green is that he is really complex,” says Martin. “He’s passionate about his work and his life, but he is not without faults. I’m enjoying exploring this character and his relationship with his partner, Briscoe (Jerry Orbach).”

    Martin received critical acclaim for his recurring role on “Ally McBeal” as Ally's boyfriend, Dr. Greg Butters. He also had a memorable guest-starring role as a disenfranchised alien on “The X-Files,” in an episode written and directed by series star David Duchovny.

    A New York University graduate and classically trained stage actor, Martin is thrilled to be living and working in New York City where he was an original cast member of the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning Broadway musical “Rent.” His extensive New York theater credits run the gamut from Shakespeare to musical comedy.

    Martin’s additional television credits include a regular role in the series “413 Hope Street” and a guest-starring dual role in “New York Undercover.” He also appeared in the TV movie “Deep in My Heart” (co-starring with Anne Bancroft and Gloria Reuben) and in the ensemble cast of the independent feature film “The Restaurant,” performing alongside Adrien Brody, Elise Neal and singing sensation Lauryn Hill. He also performed in the cable special “Rocky Horror 25: Anniversary Special,” singing songs from the cult classic film.

    “If I wasn’t acting, I would want to be a teacher,” says Martin, which may explain why his role as AIDS counselor Antonio Collin on “413 Hope Street” is among his favorites. As for dream roles, Martin says he would love to play music legend Marvin Gaye.

    In his free time, Martin loves watching sports and is a huge basketball fan. He also produced the one-man off-Broadway hit show “Fully Committed.”

    Martin resides in New York City. His birthday is January 18.

    Yet another lame character (imo), although played well. Luckily Jerry Orbach is there to lead the team...

    I like him. I think that Jesse does a great job as this character. They have not delved into his personal life too much, but I find, that when that happens on L&O there is a good chance it is because the writers are setting up for your departure.
    I really like him, but of course I like ALL the characters

    I like him, and it was interesting last week (or was it two weeks ago) when a suspect (African American) was accusing Green of racial profiling when he tackled him and put him on the ground when he was reaching in his jacket (for a phone, but it could have been for a gun). He was like "me, racial profiling, WTF?!?!?!?" He has no life outside the job, though, and that is troubling for a character.
