Does Steve Valentine of the television show Crossing Jordan have a small part in the new Hannibal Rising movie? Can you give us more information on him?
—Julie Mitchell, Clinton, Miss.
Valentine, 40, hails from London and worked as a disc jockey in Yugoslavia as a teenager before coming to the United States. The actor played small parts in a variety of TV shows, including Will & Grace, Dharma & Greg and Just Shoot Me, before landing the role of Nigel on Crossing Jordan. (If you’re a real Valentine fan, you might recall that he’s played characters also named Nigel on episodes of two other shows, Silk Stalkings and Martial Law.) He’s divorced and lives in Los Angeles. And while he has appeared in numerous films, Hannibal Rising is not one of them.
