Skeet Ulrich Fronting New 'Law and Order' Franchise

Skeet Ulrich

Among the six actors who went into consideration, Ulrich came out as the first to be announced as the lead detective of 'Law and Order: Los Angeles'.

Skeet Ulrich can cross his fingers his latest choice on TV is a success. He has signed up to front the much hyped "Law & Order" spin-off in Los Angeles. The "Scream" star will play one of the two lead detectives in the series, which is scheduled to debut this Fall.

Ulrich's previous starring TV roles in series "Miracles" and "Jericho" were short lived because of cancellation. He went over to rival drama franchise "CSI: NY" briefly last year to play a killer.

Deadline previously reported that half a dozen actors, including Ulrich was in consideration to take the lead role. James Van Der Beek, Michael Rapaport, Michael Ealy, Dylan Walsh and Dean Cain all came into the producers' mind and there's still a chance one of them will be cast for the show follows two detectives.

"Law & Order: Los Angeles" is also looking forward to add female factor. Lucy Liu was being considered to take a high-ranking role in the LAPD. Announcement is expected to be made soon because production will start July 22.

    His name is "Skeet"! In the era of Lil John, why do that to yourself unless comedy is your main brand? How about "Skuut". That would work with his last name. Add some umlauts. It'll be kool. Skeet skeet skeet.

    hopefully the new law and order will use correct language. It is someone suffering from schizophrenia not a schizophrenic. people have names and should never be called by the illness

    Ok, I am praying that Skeet Ulrich gets this. I have been wanting to see him in either movies and/or Television shows. I am rooting for Skeet Ulrich, I am very fond of him and his work. He deserves to be the "IT" man again. Loved Jericho, great TV Show. Hey Skeet do me a favor, leave these stupid Twilight Actors in the dust and I want to see you on every Magazine. Lots of Luck Skeet :)
