NBC has found their Erik Menendez. TVLine reports Gus Halper has been cast in the network’s upcoming TV series Law & Order: True Crime.
Season one of the anthology drama will center “on Lyle and Erik Menendez, brothers who were convicted in 1996 of murdering their parents and sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.”
Halper joins fellow castmember Edie Falco, who will play defense attorney Leslie Abramson on Law & Order: True Crime. NBC has not yet announced a premiere date for the series.
What do you think? Are you fan of true crime shows? Will you watch the new Law & Order?
I like true crime shows so yes I will watch. I hope it doesn’t portray Erik as a victim and devote no time to Lyle. BOTH boys deserve equal story lines. Who is going to be cast as Lyle?
Why? Who cares? There is already way to many fake reality type shows littering the seemingly unlimited networks. Will anything change from seeing these things replayed? Even with Edie Falco I intend to give this a pass.
