Sisto in Law & Order's court

By Tim Surette

Jun 01, 2007

One person glad that NBC picked up the long-running crime drama Law & Order is Jeremy Sisto. The late decision to renew the Dick Wolf-produced series for an 18th season means actor Sisto has a new job.

Sisto has been added to next season's cast as a detective to replace Milena Govich (Detective Nina Cassady), reports the Associated Press. The actor is no stranger to the Law & Order proceedings, as he guest-starred last season as a criminal defense attorney.

He's also no stranger to NBC; the 32-year-old actor played the lead role in the network's failed drama Kidnapped last year. He also donned sandals as Jesus in the 1999 miniseries Jesus, wore more sandals as Julius Caesar in the 2002 miniseries Julius Caesar, adopted a bit of psychosis as Rachel Griffith's mentally unstable brother in Six Feet Under, and danced with Brittany Murphy as Alicia Silverstone's one-time love interest Elton ("rollin' with the homies") in Clueless.

Sisto's addition comes just days after former real-life senator and potential 2008 presidential candidate Fred Thompson announced that he was leaving the show.

    At this point, I'm wondering how much difference any cast change will make. The show has become a dinosaur and will be extinct before long.

    18 years of the same storyline. A new actor won't make any difference.

    I might just check it out now that he'll be on it.

    I haven't watched the show since Jerry passed, but I will return to it now that Sisto is set to be on it. Sisto is one of my favourite actor's.

    I like him a lot. However, I think Law and Order is in the process of jumping the shark and should be ending soon, before it gets too bad. It's simply run it's course.

    OH! Jeremy Sisto! I remember him from 'Clueless' and his little stint on the second last episode of Dawson's Creek!

    It'll be great to see him in L&O;!

    Good riddance to Thompson! I've always loathed him.

    Iquiring minds want to find out who will replace Thompson as I for one will miss him.
