Parisse to uphold ‘Law’

New 'Order' for long-running skein

Annie Parisse is the new “Law & Order” assistant district attorney.

Parisse, who joins the show in midseason, fills the void left by the departure of Elisabeth Rohm, who announced last summer that she’d leave the show some time this season (Daily Variety, June 23).

Parisse joins the show in this season’s 14th episode, which is expected to air sometime in January. Her character has not yet been named.

Parisse appears in feature “National Treasure”; other feature credits include “How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days.” She’s also no stranger to the Dick Wolf/”Law & Order” franchise: Thesp gueststarred on the show in the 2001-02 season.

She becomes the sixth actor to play the assistant district attorney role on the skein, following Richard Brooks, Jill Hennessy, Carey Lowell, Angie Harmon and Rohm.

Long-running “Law & Order” is no stranger to cast changes. Most recently, Dennis Farina joined the show, replacing Jerry Orbach (who has moved to the new “Law & Order: Trial by Jury”).

Parisse’s other credits include soap “As the World Turns” as well as guest spots on “Friends,” “Third Watch” and “Big Apple.”

“Law & Order,” from Wolf Films and NBC Universal TV, is in its 15th season.
