He is the William Shatner of our generation. Seriously. Let's talk about it.

The sad thing is that he was really good on "NYPD Blue" 14 years ago when he emerged as an "overnight success" (always a bullshit term -- Caruso was in "An Officer and a Gentleman" and "First Blood" back in '82). But there was so much talk about him being the new big, bright, shining star of prime time that it went to his head and he immediately wanted to jump to movies. He's said in interviews that he had nine years out of the limelight to think about his mistakes, and I think he's sincere.

But in the "CSI: Miami" reruns I've seen, all the energy and danger and unpredictability he had as an actor on "NYPD Blue" for 26 episodes is gone. He's like the 21st century's answer to Jack Lord now. He's not trying to be a movie star anymore, but he doesn't really seem to be trying to do ANYTHING onscreen. He's just ... there. My coworker thinks he doesn't bother to learn his lines, so everytime he looks away from an actor in a scene, she thinks he's looking at cue cards. She may be right.
