The series features stage regulars Alfred Molina and Terrence Howard, who have now been promoted to cast regular status. Molina's character will move to the police force (working alongside fellow stage vet Corey Stoll), having previously worked in the district attorney's office. Howard's character will be the only district attorney seen on the show.
In addition, Alana De La Garza, who appeared on the now-canceled original "Law & Order" series, has joined the cast of the spin-off to reprise her original role. She will work with Howard in the courtroom.
Molina holds Tony Award nominations for his Broadway performances in Red, Fiddler on the Roof and Art, and a Drama Desk nomination and Theatre World Award for Off-Broadway's Molly Sweeney. Film work includes "The Tempest," "An Education," "The Da Vinci Code" and "Spider-Man 2."
Howard, seen on Broadway in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, is an Academy Award nominee for "Hustle & Flow," with additional screen credits including "Iron Man," "Idlewild," "Lackawanna Blues" and "Crash."
Stoll appeared on Broadway in A View from the Bridge, Old Acquaintance and Henry IV, earning a Drama Desk nomination for his work Off-Broadway in Intimate Apparel. His film credits include "Salt" and "Push."
