Shakeup on Law & Order: Los Angeles: Skeet Ulrich out, Alfred Molina now playing a cop
Law & Order: Los Angeles, which last aired in December, underwent a major creative overhaul in January. Skeet Ulrich, Regina Hall and Megan Boone all exited the series, which in turn promoted part-time cast members Alfred Molina and Terrence Howard to full-time regular status.
When the series returns, Molina's character will move from the district attorney's office to the police force (to work as a detective alongside Corey Stoll's character) and Howard's character will become the show's sole senior district attorney.
