On the crime procedural, Anderson portrayed Detective Kevin Bernard. He came on board toward the end of Season 18 in 2018 and remained on the show through Season 20 when the series came to an abrupt end. Several other former L&O also have been approached about the new season, from Wolf and Rick Eid, most notably veteran Sam Waterson.

During the interview with Ray, in which Anderson was joined by his mom, he also spoke about the eighth and final season of ABC’s black-ish and calling it “presidential in its efforts” and promising surprises.
