'L&O' gavels Roache By Nellie Andreeva and Kimberly Nordyke
July 18, 2007
Linus Roache has joined the cast of NBC's "Law & Order," while Danny Glover is set to recur on ABC's "Brothers and Sisters."
Meanwhile, Olivia Wilde, Kal Penn, Peter Jacobson and Anne Dudek have landed recurring roles on Fox's hit medical drama "House," and "L&O" alumna Milena Govich has come on board Fox's upcoming drama series "K-Ville."
Roache will play the new assistant district attorney who succeeds Jack McCoy (Sam Waterston) after McCoy's promotion to DA.
Roache is one of two new major casting additions to the Wolf Films/Universal Media Studios-produced drama this season, along with Jeremy Sisto, whose character replaced Govich's Detective Nina Cassady.
It's a reunion for Sisto and Roache, who starred together on NBC's "Kidnapped" last season.
