The spin-off to 'Law and Order' is now officially filled by high-profiled names with the addition of the Oscar-nominated actor.
"Law & Order: Los Angeles" is shaping up nicely with the addition of another high-profiled actor. Following the news that "Salt" actor Corey Stoll is signed to be one of the police detectives, NBC announced that Terrence Howard is also part of the new family. He would play a prosecutor.
Howard will rotate roles with Alfred Molina as the deputy district attorney in the legal drama. Series creator Dick Wolf told the press at Television Critics Association on Friday, July 30, "I feel like manager of the 1961 Yankees. I have my Mantle and Maris." He was referring to sports ace Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris.
The confirmed line-up so far are thus Skeet Ulrich as Detective Rex Winters, Molina as Deputy D.A. Morales, Stoll as Winters' partner Detective TJ Jaruszalski and Howard as another D.A. who is yet named. No female lead has been introduced this far.
