Sonny Crockett (TV)

"My name is Miss Crockett. This is my partner, Mr. Tubbs. We're here conducting an investigation."

Sonny Crockett and Rico Tubbs, played by Don Johnson and Philip Michael Thomas, were the heroes of the '80s hit TV show Miami Vice. Their 21st-century reincarnations were played by Colin Farrell and Jamie Foxx before Veronica and Tim took a shot at it. C & T were cops who often went undercover infiltrating the huge drug trade in Miami. While catching bad guys and bedding the ladies, Crocket and Tubbs always looked good. Their wardrobe, created by costume designer Gianni Versace, influenced many men to wear pastel T-shirts under Armani jackets (with the sleeves rolled up, of course) while sporting just a teensy amount of stubble. This was one of Law & Order creator Dick Wolf's first TV-producing gigs, so, really, we have Crocket and Tubbs to thank for the sound that has defined the L&O franchise, chung, chung.
