Actor Richard Belzer, longtime star of "Law & Order: SVU" -- or as Baltimore prefers, of "Homicide" -- hit Bethesda this weekend to promote his new book. Belzer's latest project is "Dead Wrong," his examination of four 1960s assassinations -- President John F. Kennedy, Sen. Robert F. Kennedy, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and Fred Hampton who led the Black Panthers. It also gets into the death of Marilyn Monroe and some other deaths with shadows and questions lingering over them. (For any "SVU" fans out there, you'll know that Belzer has worked his love of a good conspiracy into his character, Det. John Munch.)

Then Belzer dawns, a reed in black with a face Keith Richards would envy. Shades mask Belzer's baby browns. Yeah, I really broke my ass to be here.

A New York City cab driver is found dead in his vehicle. He's been stabbed 37 times and dismembered in a particularly grisly way. There's so much blood even a hard rain can't wash it away.This is how the world begins in "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit," a new NBC drama, premiering tonight at 9.By the time the pilot ends an hour later, I guarantee you will believe in this semi-new universe created by Dick Wolf; it has that realistic a feel. But whether you will want to return to it week after week is less certain.

Detective Crosetti is short, fat and bald, with an attitude -- which makes him just about a perfect Barry Levinson character."The quest is what matters," he says.
