Departed LAW + ORDER stars Benjamin Bratt and Chris Noth have left behind enduring mementos - strange artwork and bits of junk.

Actor Jesse L Martin, who currently stars as DETECTIVE EDWARD GREEN on the show, has inherited the desk once used by both actors - and all of its contents.

Martin, 34, says, "I opened the drawers recently and found old deodorant and one of those rubber shoe covers, which I can't imagine anybody wearing.

"The desk pad has all kinds of doodles by me and Benjamin Bratt and Chris Noth.

"There's also a crazy, superclose-up Polaroid of Chris with this cheese-eating grin. I leave it there because it cracks me up."
