Q My husband and I always enjoyed watching NYPD Blue and, especially, actor Dennis Franz. What has happened to him since the wrap-up of the hit series?
—Sarah Keith, Carlsbad, N.M.
After 12 seasons on NYPD Blue, Franz, 63, chose to take some down time. He and his wife, Joanie, recently built a home in Idaho, commuting between it and their house near Santa Barbara, Calif. He also enjoys being the proud grandpa of two preschool-age grandchildren. And the four-time Emmy winner, who has been an avid golfer for years, hits the links as often as possible.
