What would a week be without yet another Law & Order
departure. Angie Harmon
will leave the venerable NBC drama at the end of the season to reportedly focus on a film career. "She asked to be released early from her contractual commitment to the show," executive producer Dick Wolf
said. "As I've said numerous times in the past, if an actor wants to leave the series for personal reasons, and gives ample notice so that it doesn't affect production, I have never stood in anyone's way." Harmon may appear in the first six episodes of Law & Order
next season as well.
