Skeet Ulrich starring in <i>Law & Order: Los Angeles</i>Law & Order: Los Angeles was the only new series without a cast when NBC picked up the spin-off series back in May and now they have cast their first lead actor. Ausiello Files is reporting that Skeet Ulrich has been cast as one of the leads in Law & Order: Los Angeles.

Ulrich will portray Detective Rex Winters, one of the two lead detectives on the new series. Here's a breakdown of the character from the site.

"Ulrich's character, Rex Winters, is described as an ex-Marine who possesses the natural intuition of a cop. His experience during the Rodney King riots - which occurred during his second month on the job - shaped his philosophy on police work. Basically, he believes the world is in chaos, and people are either good or bad. As an added twist, he's married to his ex-partner."

The site is also reporting that five other lead roles are currently being cast for the new series. We'll be sure to keep you updated with any further Law & Order: Los Angeles casting news as soon as more information comes in.
