I have for many years in the Police Service appeared to look like Mr. Franz and was refered to by his screen name in NYPD Blue. Last year I was in Hospital in Vancouver BC and the Nurses kept wondering what happened to the guy from NYPD Blue. My sister had to tell them I was not him even though I now work in the BC Film Industry.
