BRITISH actor Alfred Molina has joined the cast of NBC’s Law and Order: Los Angeles alongside Skeet Ulrich.

According to Variety, Molina will play the deputy district attorney alongside Ulrich’s detective.

The programme, known by the acronym LOLA, is the first time the franchise has opted for a West Coast setting and is due to air in the autumn.

Commenting on Molina’s appointment, Dick Wolf, creactor and executive producer of Law & Order said: “I am thrilled that Fred is LOLA‘s Deputy DA. He joins a remarkable list of some of America’s greatest character actors like Sam Waterson, Vincent D’Onofrio, Jeff Goldblum, Steven Hill, Dianne Wiest and Michael Moriarty as stars of the Law & Order-branded series.”

Molina is best known to American audiences as Doc Ock in Spider-Man 2 (pictured).

But he has also appeared to widespread acclaim in movies such as last year’s An Education and can next be seen on the big screen alongside Nicolas Cage in Disney blockbuster The Sorcorer’s Apprentice.
