"Law & Order: Los Angeles" has tapped a character actor to play a deputy district attorney, joining Skeet Ulrich in the NBC spinoff, reports Nellie Andreeva at Deadline.com.
Alfred Molina will play Deputy D.A. Morales, joining Ulrich’s Detective Rex Winters, who will be one of the show’s two detectives. The show’s production is scheduled to begin Aug. 2 for a Sept. 22 debut, the story says.
Molina "joins a remarkable list of some of America’s greatest character actors like Sam Waterson, Vincent D’Onofrio, Jeff Goldblum, Steven Hill, Dianne Wiest and Michael Moriarity as stars of the ‘Law & Order’-branded series," said creator-executive producer Dick Wolf.
