Emmy nominated and acclaimed feature film actor Vincent D’Onofrio returns for his fourth season as the smoothly intuitive Detective Robert Goren in the Wolf Films/Universal Network Television drama series “Law & Order: Criminal Intent.”


“Bobby Goren takes you through a different story every week,” says D’Onofrio. “Sometimes it’s a ‘who-dunnit’ or sometimes a ‘why-dunnit.’ The fun and interesting thing about our show is that the audience knows things my character doesn’t and, as the story moves along, will realize that I know things that they don’t. The whole story is a game and we all get to play.”


With a haunting portrayal of an unstable Vietnam War recruit in Stanley Kubrick’s gritty “Full Metal Jacket” in 1987, D’Onofrio gained attention for his intense and compelling talent on the screen. His other early film appearances include “Mystic Pizza” and “Adventures in Babysitting.”


Recently, D’Onofrio executive-produced and portrayed 1960s counterculture icon Abbie Hoffman in the film “Steal This Movie,” opposite Janeane Garofalo, and starred opposite Jennifer Lopez and Vince Vaughn in the science-fiction noir film “The Cell.” He also recently starred in “The Dangerous Lives of Altar Boys” as an Irish priest opposite Jodie Foster; “The Salton Sea,” as a methamphetamine dealer opposite Val Kilmer; “Impostor,” with Gary Sinise; “Chelsea Walls,” directed by Ethan Hawke and “Happy Accidents” co-starring Marisa Tomei.
