Snapshots of People at Work

The back story, Scene I: Fairdale native Ron Harris moves to New York in 1974 to pursue acting career.

Scene II: Publicist and Boston gal Jane Harris hits New York in pursuit of acting.

Scene III: "We fell in love with each other on stage," Jane said. "We were doing a show called 'The Three Cuckolds,' " Ron said.

Scene IV: "We got married in 1982 in what was the backyard of our little house in Brooklyn," Jane said.

Scene V: Both were working on the television show "Law & Order: Criminal Intent" and "as the crow flies, we lived a mile and a half from the Trade Centers -- where they were," Ron said, on Sept. 11, 2001. "We stayed for quite a while," Jane said.

.....Scene III: "When I left the show, Vincent D'Onofrio (for whom he was a stand-in) … gave me two cases of Knob Creek bourbon. That's more than enough bourbon for a lifetime," Ron said. "We used it as the seed bourbon to start the business."

It's not the same impression of Vincent he gave in his interview. Obviously Vincent's much nicer than Ron at first led us to believe.

I bet most of us always thought so.
