Skeet Ulrich Leaving 'Law & Order: Los Angeles' Amid Creative Overhaul of Show Deadline.com

Skeet Ulrich, the first actor to be cast on "Law & Order: Los Angeles," is leaving the show amid a creative overhaul of the program, reports Deadline.com's Nellie Andreeva.

Ulrich, who plays Detective Rex Winters, will be joined by the departure of two regulars, Regina Hall and Megan Boone, who play an ADA and DDA on the show, the story notes. Creator Dick Wolf is making the changes "on the fly, without stopping production on the show that is now filming Episode 12," Andreeva writes.

Another story on Deadline.com about the departures notes that Boone is leaving the show entirely, while Hall may return for a few episodes. Although the show is NBC's highest-rated new drama, the series' ratings have been middling, the story adds.
