O'CONNELL LOVES PLAYING THE GOOD COP



Jerry O'Connell doesn't credit personal charm for his move from frequent appearances to full-time cast-member status on "Crossing Jordan." "My character is the cop in this, so they kind of needed me on this show," deadpans the actor. "They came to me last season and said, 'Look, we want to make it more like these other shows and we need a cop, will you be our cop?' It was a right-place, right-time kind of thing, so I'm loving it." O'Connell's mother is particularly happy about the job. "On one is prouder that I'm playing a cop than my mom. She'll say things like, 'I always knew you'd make a good cop.' I have to remind her that it's make-believe."
