The seemingly ageless actor spent six seasons interrogating suspects in "the box" on NBC's Homicide: Life on the Street. But this time he took the heat on TNT's hit crime drama as an airline pilot grilled by Kyra Sedgwick's Deputy Chief Brenda Johnson about his involvement with drugs, murder and flight attendants—not necessarily in that order.

Secor, who also has a recurring role on ABC's little-seen summer drama The Gates, only had a few scenes on The Closer but made the most of them. Maybe TNT can give him a meatier part on Men of a Certain Age—a reunion with his Emmy-winning Homicide partner Andre Braugher would no doubt be killer.
