None of the original six cast members is currently on the program, although Chris Noth, who played Detective Mike Logan, appeared on Law & Order: Criminal Intent from 2005-2008 and Dann Florek, who played Capt. Don Cragen, currently appears on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, both reprising their original characters. Five of the longest-serving cast members are Steven Hill as D.A. Adam Schiff (1990-2000), Jerry Orbach as Detective Lennie Briscoe (1992-2004), S. Epatha Merkerson as Lt. Anita Van Buren (1993-present), Sam Waterston as A.D.A./D.A.

Martin took time off to film the movie Rent. Steven Hill was the last member of the first season cast to leave the show, though even he did not appear in the series' pilot episode. It is widely believed that Hill's character, Adam Schiff, was based on real life New York County District Attorney Robert M. Morgenthau who still serves in the post, aged 89.
