His representative also mentioned that McCaffrey was “One of Dick Wolf’s proteges (“Swift Justice”).” He added that “McCaffrey went on to a successful 35-year career in television and film. Trained at the Actor’s Studio, he never lost his love for creating characters; however, his good looks often pushed him toward leading man roles.”
