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.
Deadline shared the following about Edwards’ role on the NBC 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.
Bring back Chicago med and Justice
This is a yawner. Wasting good talent on something that isn’t even that sensational anymore what with all the crazy awful murders that occur it seems monthly. Read People for an update on these two and it is nothing to draw viewer interest.
I don’t see much viewer interest in this story. We know they did it and we know they end up in jail. The O.J. docuseries detailed the complexity of the case, but this one was fairly cut and dried.
