DEAR STACY: Can you please explain what happened to Jamey Sheridan on “Law & Order: Criminal Intent”? For a while he wore a patch on one eye. Was he injured? I never saw it explained. – Susan B-W, NYC
DEAR SUSAN: Sheridan suffers from Bell’s palsy, which the “L&O:CI” producers wrote into his character’s storyline. The actor left the show at his own request in 2006, worn out by the commute between his Los Angeles home and New York production. Since then he’s been seen on “Eli Stone” and in Jane Seymour’s “Dear Prudence” telepic. Recently, he made NBC’s “Trauma” medical series pilot with Derek Luke.
