J.K. Simmons in Der Spitzenkandidat (2018)

Before playing police psychiatrist Dr. Emil Skoda on Law & Order (1990), he played a fanatical nut-case suspect on a crossover episode of Law & Order (1990) and Homicide: Life on the Street (1993). He is among the few recurring members to have a guest spot as one character on a "Law & Order" series before going on to play a different character in the L&O universe (others include S. Epatha Merkerson and Jerry Orbach). Ice-T played a criminal who met a "striking" fate in Exiled (1998) before going on to star as Detective Odafin "Fin" Tutuola in Law & Order: Special Victims Unit (1999).

The name of his Farmer's Insurance television commercials character is Professor Nathaniel Burke, which was not spoken, but seen on the nameplate on his desk. This is also the name of the freight agent on Gunsmoke (1955) (played by Ted Jordan), though whether this is intentional isn't clear.
