Huh, the Law & Order spin-off, Law & Order: Los Angeles, got unexpectedly classy by announcing that Alfred Molina, the British actor who has been in Frida and Spider-Man 2 and nominated for three Tonys (he just received one for Red on Broadway), will be a DA on he show. Via EW's Michael Ausiello, producer Dick Wolf said, “I am thrilled that Fred is LOLA‘s Deputy D. He joins a remarkable list of some of America’s greatest character actors like Sam Waterston, Vincent D’Onofrio, Jeff Goldblum, Steven Hill, Dianne Wiest, and Michael Moriarty as stars of Law & Order-branded series."

As one EW commenter said, "Damn. Now I’m going to have to watch and I wasn’t going to out of protest for the original being cancelled." In other LOLA casting news, Skeet Ulrich is playing one of the detectives.
