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)

NBC

Appeared on: Law & Order, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, Law & Order: Criminal Intent, Conviction

Notes: 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.

31. Sonya Paxton (Christine Lahti)

NBC

Appeared on: Law & Order: Special Victims Unit

Notes: Sonya was such a hot mess that it really took away from any desirability Christine Lahti brought to the table.

30. Elizabeth Donnelly (Judith Light)

NBC

Appeared on: Law & Order: Special Victims Unit

Notes: Fierce hair and great bone structure, Elizabeth would be higher on the list if there weren't so many hotties on these shows.

28. Tracey Kibre (Bebe Neuwirth)

NBC

Appeared on: Law & Order: Trial by Jury, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit

Notes: She may not have the youth of some of her colleagues, but she's still Bebe Neuwirth and that goes a long way.

26. Jack McCoy (Sam Waterston)

NBC

Appeared on: Law & Order, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, Law & Order: Trial by Jury

Notes: With age, he's begun to look a little like Sam the Eagle. But he's still a good-looking man and a familiar face. It's hard not to feel affection (and a little attraction) to McCoy.

18. Claire Kincaid (Jill Hennessy)

NBC

Appeared on: Law & Order

Notes: People remember Claire fondly — as well they should. But beautiful as she is, she had some really bad '90s hair for much of her run.

13. Rafael Barba (Raul Esparza)

NBC

Appeared on: Law & Order: Special Victims Unit

Notes: Maybe you have to hear Raul Esparza sing to understand how hot he is. So go do that, and then come back to this list.

1. Alex Cabot (Stephanie March)

NBC

Appeared on: Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, Conviction

Notes: That hair. Those glasses. The unresolved sexual tension with Olivia. It will never get any hotter than Alex Cabot. Never.
