Terrence Howard Joins Law & Order: Los Angeles – Terrence Howard will be joining the cast of “Law & Order: Los Angeles,” which is the newest incarnation of the show with a star-studded cast. With the addition of Howard, they will have a cast that should garner a lot of interest in the spinoff show. Howard will be playing a district attorney, and will be sharing the position with Alfred Molina. He will also be working alongside Skeet Ulrich and Corey Stoll.
“I’m not paying Alfred and Terrence to be secondary actors,” said a producer from the show. It will be interesting to see how they handle Howard playing the character along with someone else.
“They’re the Jack McCoys. The prosecutors. They’re the ones who are going to be leading the cases,” said series executive producers.
In a statement, NBC Entertainment President Angela Bromstad said that having them on the cast will add to an ”already impeccable cast.” With the previous incarnation of “Law & Order” going stagnant, eventually leading to its cancellation, it is apparent that the studio is looking to re-brand the show with the new star-studded cast. The show must have a huge budget to have all of these high profile actors.
Howard previously has appeared in “Hustle and Flow,” for which he received an Oscar nomination. He also had other credits including “Iron Man,” and “Crash.” His successful movie career has not held him back from considering a return to television, based on him joining the cast of “Law & Order: Los Angeles.”
