‘Law and Order’ nabs Alfred Molina

Thesp will play L.A. deputy district attorney

Alfred Molina has joined the cast of NBC’s “Law and Order: Los Angeles.”

He will play the deputy district attorney on the Universal Media Studios/Wolf Films production, which brings the enduring cops-and-courts format to a West Coast setting.

Show (known by the acronym “LOLA”) was greenlighted for NBC’s fall sked without a pilot, but casting has been proceeding slowly. Molina is only the second major role to be announced, following Skeet Ulrich, who will play a detective.

“I am thrilled that Fred is ‘LOLA’s Deputy D.A. He 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 Moriarty as stars of the ‘Law and Order’-branded series,” said “Law and Order” creator-exec producer Dick Wolf.

“LOLA” is set to bow in Sept. 22 in the Wednesday 10 p.m. slot behind “Law and Order: SVU.” Wolf, Rene Balcer, Blake Masters and Peter Jankowski are exec producers.
