A new record set by someone who doesn't really exist

Richard "The Belz" Belzer broke his own record this Sunday. His character Det. John Munch- originally on "Homicide: Life on the Street," has appeared on more TV shows than any other fictional character.
This Sunday he was on "The Wire."

It's a strange distinction. His cop character is just like him - wears dark suits and glasses, believes in conspiracies and cracks wise. So it could just be the Belz doing a cameo and saying a couple of cop things.

He made an appearance on the short live cop show on the UPN with the same creator as “Homicide.” Like"The Wire," it was only one scene, but he actually talked to the shows characters.

Munch even appeared in Muppet form on Sesame Street. Belz did not do the voice, but it is the character, so that counts.

Here he is in puppet form:

Here’s the list:

· "The Wire" (2008)
· "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit"
· "Sesame Street" (2006)

· "Arrested Development" (2006)

· "Law & Order: Trial by Jury"
· "The Beat" (2000)

· "Law & Order" (1996, 97, 2000)
· "Homicide: Life on the Street"
· "The X Files" (1997

On the X-Files
