What happened to Kathryn Morris and Danny Pino from 'Cold Case?'
—Phyllis Hart, Dunnellon, Fla.
Pino, 38, has segued from playing a detective on 'Cold Case' to playing one on 'Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.' He joined the longrunning NBC drama as Det. Nick Amaro last fall. “It’s a new chapter,” he says. “I’m working in New York, a city I like a great deal. I lived here about 10 years ago to study acting and I really love the energy. I think this is a very interesting role because it’s that of a detective, a different one from Scotty Valens of 'Cold Case.'”
In real life, the Miami, Fla.-born actor has a brother who is a detective and, as a result, his worst critic. But despite the phone calls when his brother says, “That would never happen,” their conversations are one way that Pino gets firsthand advice on how to make playing a cop as authentic as possible.
As for Morris, 43, a native Cincinnati, Ohio, since wrapping up the role of Det. Lilly Rush on 'Cold Case,' she starred with Denise Richards in the 2011 movie Cougars, Inc. She also had a role in Moneyball, but it didn’t make the final cut of the film. In addition, she has been working behind the scenes as a producer and has several projects in the works.
