Not even rumors of a shower scene on "NYPD Blue" can persuade Dennis Franz to shed some pounds.

"I'd love to say that I'm going to get in shape for it, but the most I'll probably do is skip breakfast," says Franz, who plays Detective Andy Sipowicz on the hit TV series. "So what you see is what you're gonna get."He's had other things on his mind, Franz says in the Sept. 3 issue of TV Guide.

"I was thinking mustache," says Franz, who shaved his facial hair for two summer TV projects. "I only had about two weeks to grow it back, and the more I kept checking the mirror, the slower it seemed to be coming in."
