How to Watch

On March 27, the new Law & Order star shared a video of his two granddogs, Mika and Otto. In the clip, we get to see the pair of giant black dogs basking in the sun without a care in the world. 

''Is it weird that I’m obsessed with my granddogs Mika & Otto?,'' Goldwyn captioned the video. We don't blame him!

See the adorable dogs later down in this post. 

Goldwyn has been married to actress Jane Musky since 1987, and the pair share daughters Anna and Tess, who have given him the precious gift of being a dog grandpa.

In a recent interview with TODAY.com, the actor discussed what inspires his DA character

''I wouldn't say that Nick Baxter, my character, that I'm modeling him after anyone in particular. I've always been fascinated with the criminal justice system. I'm on the board of an incredible organization called the Innocence Project, which is at the forefront of criminal justice reform in this country and has pioneered the use of DNA evidence to free the wrongfully convicted — which we're actually doing a show about now. We're filming it, so you'll see that soon. (I have) many friends that are lawyers, and some are prosecutors, and some are defense lawyers, but I kind of wanted to find my own way into it,'' he said. 

He also talked about how his directing roles helped him sympathize the actors experiences on set.

''I was lucky enough to direct Law & Order like 18 years ago in 2006 with Sam (Waterston) and Dennis Farina and Jesse Martin and Annie Parisse — incredible cast, as always, on Law & Order. I've directed a lot, and when I'm acting, I'm so happy not to think about directing. I would never presume to think what a director should be doing. I guess the only difference it makes for me as an actor is I can really sympathize with what a director's concerns are because I've been in the hot seat myself. So hopefully I can be helpful,'' he said. 

He also gave us hints about what to expect on upcoming episodes

''Nick Baxter is trying to put his team together, and as these initial episodes evolve, you're really going to see Nolan Price, Hugh Dancy's character, and I kind of sniffing each other out. They're trying to figure out where we come from, so there's quite a lot of tension in addition to some really interesting cases that I was really happy to see.''
