Lord forbid I get Cross examined by John Buchanan

Lord forbid I get Cross examined by John Buchanan

Lavender-squirrel

I know nothing about law but be he comes across as a dirty lawyer. How he throws out comments and immediately says withdrawn. Like he wants the jury to hear it but then “officially” takes it back. He drives me nuts.


Dark_Dreamr

Yep he destroys the victim and witness and when they began to answer “WITHDRAWN”


TwoBitSpecialist

That's because he is, but he is never the subject of an investigation so he gets a pass. He always represents obvious criminal enterprises.


Robert0023

Yeah, I get that from most of the defense attorneys in the show, except for Trevor Langann. I don't know why but he feels like the only good defense attorney.


RoteSchuh

It might be because the actor is Mariska Hargitay's real life husband.


lagameuze

I would LOVE to see him involved in a crime omg. I want him in jail lol


lorinisapirate

Remember when he was the attorney for the Russia human trafficker? Mother fucker knew everything.


PeligrosaPistola

He looks like an older, portlier version of John Cena here


SwAeromotion

Reminds me of IL Gov. JB Pritzker


foo-bar-baz-bin

There’s no one in this picture. What are you talking about?


Dark_Dreamr

Hilarious 😂


jadexangel

I can’t unsee it now


jeahboi

He’s such a great love-to-hate-him character.


aftercloudia

If I was being dogged by this man in court I'd probably cry then start swinging and end up in jail 😔


bayalyboo

“Court officers, have them removed right now!!”


AlphaNepali

If I ever needed a lawyer, I would choose him.


holliehippotigris

Callahan is pretty good too. She represents shitbags like he does.


Dark_Dreamr

He should work for the prosecutor


Liam_Statham

This man annoys me so much with sarcastic comments in court.


Dark_Dreamr

He makes me feel so guilty when all I do is stay home


YouGoThatWayIllGoHom

LOL I was going to comment and say nearly the exact same thing . . . He makes me wonder if I'm the one who committed the fictional crime.


holliehippotigris

Proves he's a good actor but his character is a complete shit person with no morals.


TrevorLahey93

Barba vs Buchanan is some of the best court battles on the show.


crepelabouche

Hard agree.


Darkfire757

They need a spin-off show as legal partners


MrsJetson

I hate everything about him, which I guess is good casting on SVU's part.


rheiush

I would confess to a crime even if I didn't commit any and I would be called just as the witness 😄. He is intimidating and twisting words, saying outrageous things and then taking them back. I bet any real judge would fine him after the first try of this tactics and that would be it. But on TV it's entertaining. Barba must have ruined many pens out of frustration over this guy.


Reninwonderland

I hate the character so much. Kudos to the actor though, he does an excellent job with him


LanaDelGay96

Him along with Rita Calhoun are my favorite defense attorneys. He's such a love-to-hate character


bayalyboo

And the episode where he and Rita have to team up bc the sk hired them both… top notch.


yoimprisonmike

Rudnick. The ME who killed women


BoSocks91

Best defense attorney in the series IMO. Love this character. Great actor, and for anyone who is interested…check out The Wire. Delaney Williams portrays one of the best characters in the series.


cypher448

It’s interesting there are so many actors from The Wire, and then you have John Munch who played himself on The Wire.


BoSocks91

Loved Munch’s cameo. That was very cool to include him. But yah, it’s crazy. When I first started watching, I kept pointing out all the SVU characters lol.


crepelabouche

Everytime I see him I know I’m about to hear something slimey.


big_nothing_burger

He may be the sleaziest of all the lawyers.


Dark_Dreamr

Definitely 👨🏻‍⚖️


emmamason2324

I really don't like him and he's a sleazeball.


KatieLouis

I love him.


Ravenhunter_

I'd probably start crying


Peachyyykeeks

Every time he shows on an episode my blood starts to boil haha


PocoChanel

Nice tie, though.


gguerr07

no bc he would make me so angry with his WITHDRAWN


Ravenhunter_

Cross examined? You mean bullied?


EmpMel

I always think about how McCoy flagship got in trouble for his comments (minus True North) and yet this dude gets away with EVERYTHING under the sun. Another lawyer got shut down and then an episode or two later here comes Buchanan attacking Evie in her cross. It really seemed like writing-wise though they wanted her to lose that episode.


moonchild37

oh lord he’s a real POS. i get the feeling that he may get his own episode in the future, whatever it may be!


Arkady2009

Hate his character but damn, that’s because he’s a good actor. You’d think he’d stop defending rape suspects though because he always loses, lol.
