Jesse L. Martin stars as the compulsive and passionate Detective Ed Green on "Law & Order." In the 2006-07 season, Green is the senior detective and is tasked for the first time training rookie detective Nina Cassady (Milena Govich). Jesse L. Martin has received multiple SAG nominations (Ensemble) and six Image Award nominations (Outstanding Actor) for his work on the show.

An accomplished actor and singer who has already made his mark in the worlds of theater, television and film, Martin continues to establish himself by constantly bringing a winning combination of indelible charm, charisma and intensity to his roles.

In film, Martin recently completed production on the independent film "Cake Eaters," Mary Stuart Masterson's feature directorial debut. Martin stars opposite Aaron Stanford, Jayce Bartok and Kristen Stewart. Martin was most recently seen reprising his role in the film adaptation of Jonathan Larson's Pulitzer-Prize and Tony Award-winning musical, "Rent." Based on Puccini's classic opera "La Boheme," this revolutionary rock opera tells the story of a group of bohemians struggling to live and pay their rent in the gritty background of New York's East Village. Martin originated the role of Thomas B. "Tom" Collins.

Martin received critical acclaim for his recurring role on "Ally McBeal" as Ally's boyfriend, Dr. Greg Butters. Martin's additional television credits include a guest-starring role as a disenfranchised alien on "The X-Files" (episode written and directed by David Duchovny); a series regular on the Fox series "413 Hope Street;" a guest-starring role on the Wolf Films/Studios USA series "New York Undercover"; and the telefilm "Deep In My Heart," co-starring opposite Anne Bancroft and Gloria Reuben.

Past film credits for Martin include "Season of Youth" and the independent feature "The Restaurant," where he performed alongside Adrien Brody, Elise Neal and Lauryn Hill.

In theater, Martin starred in "Rent," one of the longest running shows on Broadway. "Rent" was the winner of the 1996 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, the Obie Award, the New York Drama Critics Circle Award, four Tony Awards and three Drama Desk Awards. Martin originated the role of Thomas B. "Tom" Collins in the off-Broadway production at the NY Theatre Workshop and carried it through to the Broadway production.

Martin's extensive New York theater credits run the gamut from Shakespeare to musical comedy and include such productions as "Timon of Athens" and "The Inspector General" (National Actors Theatre); "I Ain't Yo Uncle" (Hartford Stage); "Rock N' Roles From Wm Shakespeare" (Actors Theatre of Louisville); "The Butcher's Daughter" (Cleveland Playhouse); "Romeo & Juliet" (Acting Company Tour); and "Two Gentlemen of Verona" (Arena Stage).

An alumnus of NYU and a classically trained stage actor, Martin currently resides in Manhattan.
