Raymond J. Barry To Continue His Father Figure Role…On LAW & ORDER: CRIMINAL INTENT

After 10 seasons of LAW & ORDER: CRIMINAL INTENT, we’re finally going to get to see a little more into the family side of tough cop Alex Eames (Kathryn Erbe.) TVLine reports that Justified‘s Raymond J. Barry has signed on to play Eames’ father. The character will be introduced when Eames and partner Detective Goren (Vincent D’Onofrio) visit Eames’ hometown and while no details have been set yet on when Barry will start appearing, the anticipation is already causing buzz.

The current season finds Detective Goren addressing his demons with a therapist, and it seems that Eames will have her own personal struggles as complications arise in her relationship with her father.

Law & Order: Criminal Intent premiered its 10th season this past Sunday on USA.
