The cast for NBC’s “Law and Order: Los Angeles” continues to grow with its latest addition. Just yesterday we revealed that Alfred Molina and Corey Stoll had been cast as a prosecutor and detective, and now Terrence Howard is about to get in on some of that legal action. According to Variety, the Oscar nominated actor is in talks to play one of the main characters on the network’s newest spin-off.
Howard’s involvement isn’t really a shock because he was one of the actors rumored to be on the casting shortlist back in June. He was mentioned alongside Skeet Ulrich who ended up landing the role of Detective Rex Winters, while Stoll will play his partner TJ Jaruszalski, and Molina stars as Deputy D.A. Morales. If the deal goes through, the trade claims that Howard will take on the role of the new Deputy District Attorney who’ll work alongside Molina’s character.
Production on “LOLA” is expected to begin on August 2nd and the show will debut this fall. So how will this affect the other “Law and Order”? Well, “Special Victims Unit” will be the lead in for the freshman series, which will take over the original “L&O” time slot of Wednesdays at 10 PM.
“Law and Order: Los Angeles” is scheduled to premiere on September 22nd.
