Anderson's Relatives Mistake Him For Real Cop

ANTHONY ANDERSON's relatives struggle to understand the LAW & ORDER star is only a TV cop - they are convinced he's a real life police detective.
The actor has played Detective Kevin Bernard on the hit TV show since 2008, but admits some family members still turn to him when they get in trouble with the law - thinking he can put in a good word on their behalf.
He says, "My family's a little crazy, sometimes they confuse reality with fiction. A couple days ago my cousin called me up and was whispering on the phone, 'Look man, I just got popped (busted) for driving without a permit and failure to yield to a uniformed officer.'
"I was like, 'Wait a minute, what do you want me to do about it?' He was like, 'Can you make a phone call for me?' I was like, 'No, I can't do that. I'm a TV cop, I can't be listening to stuff like this!'"
