Sam Waterston at "Law & Order and the Stage" panel...

Sorry if you're seeing this AGAIN on your f-list...

Sam was at the Law & Order and the Stage panel last night, along with Linus Roache, Annie Parisse and writer/producer Gina Gionfriddo. I went, it was awesome and I got to meet Sam!

A couple of pics under the cut from the event. If you wanna know more, I can give more details, but as I said, I don't want to spam people any more than I already have!

Sam Waterston in Russia

So this is a little random, but apparently my Russian professor was actually Sam's personal interpreter when he went to Russia sometime in the 90's (okay, really random). I've known this since last semester, but today in class she was talking about  differences between Russia and America, and then started telling us about  Sam riding the Moscow metro and being the first American some other random Russian metro-rider had met and rude waiters and such and I was just like OMG. SAM STORIES. по-русский.

ANYWAY. That's actually all I really had to say. It was just a wonderful moment.

Sam's statement on L&O's cancellation

In case you live under a rock, Law & Order has been canceled.

Sam released a statement regarding the cancellation.

Here it is in its entirety:

This season's shows are as good as any we've ever made on Law & Order.

A job like the one I've had doesn't happen in my line of work. I've had a great time. It's opened countless opportunities, kept me close to home, family, and friends, given me millions of wonderful things to say in highly dramatic circumstances, and kept me out of trouble.

I have no complaints, none, but I'm as surprised as anyone. I couldn't imagine there would not be a 21st season on NBC, either. So, if we end up tied for first with "Gunsmoke" for longest running primetime drama ever, that'll do. No complaints.

I'm permanently grateful to Dick Wolf and the close-knit community that's our crew, writers, actors and producers. What a class act they are, and with NBC's support over these many years, they've changed my life.

To the fans of the show, thanks for your amazing loyalty. Last but not least, unbelievable numbers of people in New York adopted us as their mascot, the highest possible compliment from the best town around.
