The "Law & Order" Prosecutor Hotness Rankings

Sure, we could judge them by their skills as lawyers, but it's way more fun to be shallow. Here is the definitive ranking of hotness within the District Attorney's Office.

Posted on

36. Arthur Branch (Fred Thompson)

Appeared on: Law & Order, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, Law & Order: Criminal Intent, ConvictionNotes: Politics aside, Arthur just wasn't a looker. On the other hand, he kind of resembles a bullfrog, if you're into that sort of thing.
