Skeet Ulrich out at ‘Law and Order: Los Angeles’

Skeet Skeet Ulrich is out as one of the stars on NBC’s “Law and Order: Los Angeles.”

News comes after days of other reports of a major shake up on the show. NBC and exec producer Dick Wolf finally confirmed the changes on Wednesday.

Ulrich, who played Detective Rex Winters, will depart the show after episode 14.

Instead, the show will now revolve around stars Terence Howard and Alfred Molina.

Molina, who has played D.D.A Ricardo Morales, will have a more active role moving forward as his character — an LAPD vet — quits the prosecutor’s office in frustration and returns to the force as a detective.

Howard and Molina will now appear in each episode.

“We have the fortune of two world class actors on LOLA, and it was frustrating to have one on the bench every week,” Wolf said. “It would be like having Peyton Manning and Tom Brady as your quarterbacks, playing alternate games.”

NBC also confirmed that Regina Hall and Megan Boone have also been let go as regulars on the retooled series.
