Skeet Ulrich to Anchor Law & Order: Los Angeles

by at . Comments

Despite a lack of cast members, Law & Order: Los Angeles was a key part of NBC's fall schedule when the network unveiled its new line-up in May.

Now, the series finally has a name attached to it: Skeet Ulrich will play detective Rex Winters, an ex-Marine whose experience during the Rodney King riots shaped his philosophy on the job.

As first reported by Entertainment Weekly, the character is also married to his ex-partner.

Ulrich appeared on three hours of CSI: NY last year and anchored cult favorite Jericho, which only lasted for 29 episodes, but developed a passionate following.

What do you think? Is Law & Order: Los Angeles off to a promising start with this casting?

This makes me nostalgic for Jericho! I've never watched Law & Order at all, but now I totally will. I love Skeet Ulrich.
