Skeet Ulrich Out of Law & Order: Los Angeles

by at .

Law & Order: Los Angeles will soon undergo a drastic casting change.

According to Deadline Hollywood, Skeet Ulrich - the first actor cast on the latest installment of this franchise - will exit the series this season.

Producer Dick Wolf doesn't plan on stopping production on the show, despite such a significant shake-up. No word yet on just how Detective Rex Winters will be written out.

Alfred Molina, meanwhile, will remain as Ricardo Morales, but jump to the precinct, beginning with episode 15. It will be revealed that this character was a LAPD detective for 15 years prior to becoming a lawyer.

    They shoot Winters and LOLA dies. Ulrich drew in a lot of viewers and it seems they all left en masse once his character was killed. Bad move. He was likable and had a strong bond with the other Det., TJ something and Molina is horrible as a cop -- unwatchable. They really imploded this show badly. Seems almost deliberate?

    Really disappointed that Skeet Ulrich's charachter has been written off. He was one of the only reasons I was watching this one. I think you chose the wrong one to write off.

    I am adding the comment that not only was I very disappointed to see Skeeter leave LOLA because he was a misstep? I also read that my other favorite on the program is the other misstep.....I am gasping for air!!! That actor being the deputy d.a. Terrence! good grief.....isn't the economy enough to deal with?
    good bye

    I was shocked to see my fav Dec Winters let go. He was the only reason I watched! I cannot express how disappointed I am. Why not removal of Skeet's partner and still bring in the new dude. I appreciate the new character replacement but skeet should have remained a lead. don't know if i can continue to follow the series.

    these ppl don't account for what skeet ulrich brings to the table yes the characters have not built to much attachment to characters for 13 episodes but it has more potential than casting a lead aka morales who basically nobody has freakin heard of
    now that ulrich is gone i'm gone

    I've just started watching this show and I love Skeet Ulrich's character. I'm gutted he's leaving. I also think Megan Boone and Regina Hall leaving is a mistake. It's only early days, why all the changes?????
