Richard Belzer has returned for his thirteenth season as the acerbic Detective John Munch on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, after first portraying Munch on NBC's critically acclaimed drama series "Homicide: Life on the Street" for seven years. "This is one conspiracy in which I have been a willing participant," says Belzer, a renowned conspiracy theorist, of his 18-year, multi-show portrayal of Munch. In fact, Belzer has played Detective Munch on a record-setting 11 different television series: Law & Order, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, Law & Order: Trial By Jury, Homicide, The X-Files, The Beat, M.O.N.Y., Sesame Street, The Wire, Arrested Development and 30 Rock.
The veteran standup comic, actor and author began his on-screen career with a starring role in Groove Tube, the counterculture film that went on to become a cult classic. Belzer's comedic talents have since been featured in every entertainment medium from off-Broadway to radio to film to television. He is the author of four books, the last two of which were a crime fiction series co-written with Michael Black that featured Belzer as the mystery-solving protagonist.
