SEX & The City star Chris Noth regrets returning to the LAW & ORDER TV franchise to replace exhausted VINCENT D'ONOFRIO - because the show killed his creativity.
Noth reprised his Mike Logan character in 2005 for three seasons on Law & Order: Criminal Intent and now admits the lengthy return to the cop drama was a mistake.
He tells Cigar Aficionado magazine, "I never really believed I fit in that show. I did it because the deal was so good and I didn't have to do every episode (and) Vince needed a break.
"We did some good shows. We had a good crew and I liked the people. But I don't want to do something that's just comfort food.
"Those procedurals (shows) lull you into a certain state because they all look the same and they're death to the creative process for an actor."
