    Capt. James Deakins (Jamey Sheridan)

    Jamey
    Sheridan
    as Captain James Deakins

    Jamey Sheridan -- who became an actor only after a knee injury ruined his chances for a dancing career -- first gained notice as a maverick attorney in the quirky drama “Shannon’s Deal,” then became a sensitive doctor on “Chicago Hope” -- now he fleshes out another popular TV profession as a politically savvy captain of police detectives in “Law & Order: Criminal Intent.”

    “Captain Deakins put himself through college as a beat cop,” says Sheridan. “He’s young for his job and has his eyes on the police commissioner’s job. He’s a straight-arrow, streetwise, family man who is both patient and demanding with his detectives.”

    Sheridan was born and raised in Pasadena, California. Long after his transition to stage work, he received a Tony Award nomination in 1987 for his performance in the revival of “All My Sons.” He made his feature-film debut in “Jumpin’ Jack Flash” and began guest-starring in such series as “Spenser: For Hire” before catching the collective eyes of TV network executives who featured him in the title role of “Shannon’s Deal” for two seasons from 1990-91.

    Following Sheridan’s star turn in the drama, he began a string of leading roles in such early-1990s films as “Stanley & Iris” (opposite Jane Fonda), “All I Want for Christmas,” “A Stranger Among Us” (opposite Melanie Griffith) and “Whispers in the Dark.” He scored favorable reviews for his work as a villain in the miniseries “Stephen King’s ‘The Stand’” in 1994 and also appeared that year with Meredith Baxter in the TV movie “My Breast.” In 1995, Sheridan became an ensemble cast member on “Chicago Hope” during the medical drama’s second season.

    More recently, Sheridan starred in the films “Cradle Will Rock” and “The Ice Storm.” He turned in a memorable performance as Ozzie Nelson in the TV movie “Ricky Nelson: Original Teen Idol” in 1999. His other TV movies include “Hamlet,” “The Lost Child” and “The Echo of Thunder.”

    On the stage, he played Brutus in “Julius Caesar” at New York’s Shakespeare-in-the-Park and previously appeared on Broadway in “Long Day’s Journey into Dark” and “Biloxi Blues.” Sheridan recently finished filming the Irwin Winkler film “Life as a House” opposite Kevin Kline and Kristen Scott Thomas.

    Sheridan is married and is the father of two children. His birthday is July 12.

    I just finished saying I like ALL the characters (In another thread), but I must say this is the one we could really do without
    I like him, and think he does a fine job, but Vince D carries CI in my opinion. They really don't need anyone else

    He doesn't get much to do on this series. I would love to see an episode where D'Onofrio crosses the line in an interrogation, ADA Carver tells them the confession is tainted and can't be used, and Deakins has to yell at him, then they show Deakins and Van Burean meeting for a drinking, bitching about their direct reports.

    Yep, that would be interesting! I have several times wondered a bit about why the lawyers of the ppl he interrogates just sit there and let him practically harass the person he interrogate. Had this been The Practice, those guys would have been all over him!
