The role will mark Beach's return to television since his appearances on "JAG" and "Third Watch" as he has been busy with a successful film career. Beach's character, Chester Lake, was first introduced to the series in its eighth season when he joined forces with Det. Odafin Tutola (Ice-T) to track down a rapist who had struck in Brooklyn and Manhattan. “… - (Thanks Cindian!)
