Every Main Cast Member of Death and Other Details
Mandy Patinkin - Rufus Coteworth
Mandy Patinkin plays Rufus Coteworth, aka the world's greatest detective.
While Coteworth is a master in analyzing cases and finding the real suspect, the viewers meet the detective in Death and Other Details as a struggling man trying to find his place in the world.
Speaking with Entertainment Weekly in November 2023, showrunners Mike Weiss and Heidi Cole McAdam teased what to expect from Coteworth in the series, noting that "he is constantly amazed by his own brilliance:"
"Rufus tells us, at the very beginning of our story, to pay attention. Details matter. Rufus can take a single thread found at a crime scene and tell you where it was woven, and when, and who it belonged to. He is constantly amazed by his own brilliance. In that way, he is not unlike Poirot, Holmes, or other masterful detectives who came before him."
Patinkin's most recognizable role is playing Saul Berenson in Homeland. The actor's other notable roles include The Princess Bride, Alien Nation, and Dick Tracy.
