Terrence Howard joining 'Law & Order: L.A.'
Will play deputy district attorney, rotating with Alfred Molina
Terrence Howard is joining the cast of NBC's newest "Law & Order" spinoff.
Howard will play a deputy district attorney in "Law & Order: Los Angeles," rotating with Alfred Molina, who was previously announced as a prosecutor on the drama.
Series creator Dick Wolf said Friday the combination of Howard and Molina makes him feel like the manager of the 1961 Yankees. Wolf said he now had his "Mantle and Maris," referring to sluggers Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris.
Also joining the cast of "LOLA," as the "Law & Order" spinoff is nicknamed, is Corey Stoll. He's in the movie "Salt" and guest-starred in the original "Law & Order."
"Law & Order: Los Angeles" debuts Sept. 29.
