The Connie Rubirosa depicter will join Alfred Molina and Terrence Howard, reprising her 'Law & Order' role in the Los Angeles spin-off.
Following the exit of Skeet Ulrich, Regina Hall and Megan Boone, "Law & Order: Los Angeles" is going to welcome Alana De La Garza. The depicter of Connie Rubirosa in "Law & Order" is set to reprise her Assistant District Attorney role in the spin-off.
"I hope fans of the 'Mothership' will be happy to see the return of Alana's character, Connie Rubirosa, one of the longest-running assistant prosecutors on Law & Order," creator Dick Wolf told TV Guide. "Alana has a huge following and it will be interesting to follow her character as she comes to terms with Los Angeles justice."
"LOLA" itself is currently put on another hiatus. After being absent for two months, the TV series is not going to return on February 8 as scheduled. Instead, the network will set a new date. On top of that, it also made a role-shuffle in addition to letting go some of regulars. Alfred Molina's role is changed from deputy district attorney to police detective, and Terrence Howard will appear every week as the deputy district attorney.
