'Homicide: Life on the Street' Cast Now, 20 Years after the Show Ended
“Homicide: Life on the Street” ran for seven seasons, with a beautiful cast that showed Baltimore Police Department’s Homicide Unit with fictional stories.
After “Homicide: Life on the Street” ended in 1999, fans of the show saw a de facto ending through “Homicide: The Movie” in 2000, with their favorite cast. Here’s how they are 20 years later.
Daniel Baldwin suffered from addiction during his time acting in the 1989 sitcom “Sydney” and entered into a rehab facility not long after.
As “Homicide: Life on the Street” was coming to a close, he experienced an overdose at the Plaza Hotel in Manhattan, and in 2005 suffered another relapse.
He has since become an advocate for drug awareness and plans to open a drug rehabilitation center in Central New York with support from his family.

Actor and director Clark Johnson was seen on television again in 2003 and 2006 as he joined the cast of “S.W.A.T.” and “The Sentinel,” respectively.
He is one of the five actors who appeared in both the first and last episodes of “Homicide: Life on the Street.” Joining him are Belzer, Kyle Secor, Yaphet Kotto, and Sharon Ziman.
Melissa Leo focused on her career as an actress after the series ended, having films that won her awards.

She also received different award nominations for her role in the 2008 film “Frozen River” and the HBO series, “Mildred Pierce.”
Jon Polito is a television veteran with many films to date, including “Millers Crossing,” “Barton Fink,” “The Freshman,” “The Man Who Wasn’t There,” “The Crow,” and “Blankman.”
In 2001, Polito garnered a TELLY for animation voice-over in “The Dancing Pumpkin” and in 2005, won the Cinequest Maverick Award for his life-long work in the industry. He also won a Best Actor Award in 2012 for his short film “Anti-Muse.”
Kyle Secor is not only an actor but a certified yoga instructor and kung fu and karate-trained man. Before acting in “Homicide: Life on the Street,” he worked on “Law & Order” with Jill Hennessy. After the show in 2001, Secor appeared in “Crossing Jordan.”
Before starring in the show, Ned Beatty had several films and shows which won him different awards, including an Emmy Award nomination for Best Actor in “Friendly Fire.”
