It is time for the return of a big name to NBC. Anthony Edwards has been added to the cast of Law & Order: True Crime. He starred on ER for several seasons. He will join Edie Falco, Gaston Villanueva, and Gus Halper on the new drama series.
“Edwards plays Los Angeles judge Stanley Weisberg who oversaw the Menendez trial and had a contentious relationship with defense attorney Leslie Abramson. Though he once had had a good reputation as a fair jurist, in the years leading to the Menendez brothers’ trial he had been humiliated in the eyes of his peers who thought he has lost the ability to control his courtroom. He previously had presided over hung juries in the McMartin preschool molestation case and acquittals for the police in the Rodney King trial.”
Law & Order: True Crime will premiere this fall. Are you excited to see Edwards on the series? Tell us what you think.
