Skeet Ulrich cast for Law & Order: Los Angeles as Detective Rex Winters

Scoop: ‘Law & Order: Los Angeles’ subpoenas Skeet Ulrich | Ausiello | EW.com

We finally have a face to put with the name spin-off.

Sources confirm that Jericho survivor Skeet Ulrich has signed on to play one of the two lead detectives on Law & Order: Los Angeles.

Ulrich’s character, Rex Winters, is described as an ex-Marine who possesses the intuition of a natural cop. His experience during the Rodney King Riots — which occurred during his second month on the job — shaped his philosophy on policing. Basically, the world is chaos and people are either good or bad. As an added twist, he’s currently married to his ex-partner.

Ulrich is the first actor to sign up for LOLA duty. Five other roles — including Ulrich’s onscreen partner — are currently being cast.

Is NBC off to a good start with Ulrich?

Hmm, I like the cast so far. Skeet Ulrich on LOLA, many fans are definetly gonna watch this show. I can’t wait for September myself. LOLA and from what Neal Baer’s been tweeting, we’re gonna have a two-hour SVU premiere that will leave fans guessing. Sounds like a good start, now if AMC would take the original Law & Order! And USA Network CANCEL Law & Order: Criminal Intent. We’d be okay.

    Skeet Ulrich is an excellent choice! Now if they keep going with intelligent casting, Dick Wolf, Blake Masters and Rene Balcer may have a winner on their hands!

    Now, if only the mothership were running as well… Just cancel ‘CI’ and put the mothership in its place!

      I hope the original series is renewed too! I wouldn’t mind Walon Green going to it!
