‘FBI’ Star Jeremy Sisto Says a ‘Law & Order’ Crossover Would ‘Be Awesome’

by Joe Rutland

Don’t get weird on FBI star Jeremy Sisto if he’s excited about a possible crossover with Law & Order. He has some history with the show.

Say what? Yes, indeed. The Jubal Valentine actor from FBI actually spent time on that other Dick Wolf-created drama. Between 2007-10, Sisto played Detective Cyrus Lupo, according to IMDb.

Let’s see what he has to say about these crossover reams in an interview with CinemaBlend.

“That’d be awesome,” Sisto says. “I should play both [of my] characters!

“That would be something…,” he continues. “I think it would be great if there was this really weird scene where Jubal was going into the restroom, and he looked up and at the next urinal it was Cyrus and we have some strange scene: ‘Hey, don’t I know you from somewhere?’

‘FBI’ Star Sisto Could Possibly Play Former, Current Characters If Crossover Happens

“I don’t know why we have to be in the men’s room—it just felt like an appropriate place for an absurd moment,” Sisto says.

OK, so what if he did play both characters? It has been done before in the long history of classic TV. Remember Patty Duke playing two characters on The Patty Duke Show? What about Max Baer being caught between Jethro Bodine and Jethrine in the first seasons of The Beverly Hillbillies?

Yeah, let’s reel this back into the current-day mode.

We all will have to wait and see what will happen. The one sure-fire connection between Sisto’s former and current show is Dick Wolf.

FBI kicks off the FBI franchise night, which dominates Tuesday nights on CBS. Sisto and Missy Peregrym are among the show’s top stars and you can see the drama at 8 p.m. Eastern, 7 p.m. Central.

Show’s Actor Shares What He Considers To Be ‘Heart of the Show’

If you don’t think Sisto keeps his ear to the creative synergy of FBI, then think again.

Follow what the actor says about what is the “heart of the show.”

Sisto shares in an interview with Starry Magazine about what “type of person” would go on the front lines every day.

“I think at the heart of this show is a reminder that these people are putting themselves put there so much,” he says. “And it takes a really specific type of person to go out on the line at that level and be like, ‘If I’m wrong, this couple loses their kid. But I’m going to trust myself.’ Every week is different…”

We can just marvel at how the show’s entire cast brings the work nature of an FBI agent to life every Tuesday night. Tune in on Tuesday nights, Outsiders.
