Jesse L. Martin
(Detective "Eddie" Edward Green)
With his distinctly different personality and background, at first Briscoe clashed with his new partner, Det. Green (Seasons 10-11.) But the compulsive and passionate Green wants the same results as his more seasoned partner: to catch the suspect and build a case that will bring him/her to justice. Known for his aggressive and cunning interrogation style, Green must sometimes be reined in by Lt. Van Buren. However, his enthusiasm for his work is matched by his loyalty and sense of integrity.
