Jill Hennessey, a former assistant DA on Law and Order and a Canadian, plays an assistant coroner in the Boston-based TV series, Crossing Jordan. In Wednesday's episode, Jack Klugman played a former head coroner who is losing his sight and probably his job. However, Hennessey agrees to become his
"eyes" in trade for his knowledge. He must have been hiding in his office during earlier episodes. Expect to see Klugman return in the future as a consultant. Hennessey's father, a former cop who now owns a bar, is played by The White Shadow, Ken Howard. In early episodes, he helped his daughter solve the mystery, but his role is becoming smaller and smaller. On Wednesday, Hennessey was in the bar, but Howard was not.
