Howard to star in ‘Law & Order: LA’

Thesp will play prosecutor on NBC series

Terrence Howard has signed on to co-star in “Law & Order: Los Angeles.”

Howard will play a deputy D.A. on the NBC skein that also tapped Alfred Molina for a prosecutor role last week.

Besides Molina, Howard joins a cast that includes Skeet Ulrich and Corey Stoll, who will play detectives. Production on the Universal Media Studios show, known as “LOLA,” is set to start early next month — the series was ordered for the fall sked without a pilot.

“I feel like manager of the 1961 Yankees,” said “Law & Order” boss Dick Wolf in announcing the casting. “I have my Mantle and Maris.”

Howard has not been a regular on a series since his supporting role on the second season of the short-lived Showtime skein, “Street Time.”

With the original “Law & Order” getting the ax, “Law & Order: Los Angeles” will move into its old 10 p.m. slot on Wednesdays, paired with “Law & Order: SVU.”

Howard at present is lensing the indie feature “Winnie” in which he stars as Nelson Mandela opposite Jennifer Hudson in the Winnie Mandela biopic.
