"Raul Esparza is being bumped up to series regular on NBC's Law &
Order: SVU. He plays Assistant DA Rafael Barba on the Wolf
Films/Univeral Television drama, which returns for its 15th season
beginning September 25 and stars shooting next week in New York. Said
executive producer Warren Leight: "Making him a series regular is a
small way of acknowledging his enormous contribution to our show."
Esparza is repped by ICM Partners and Elin Flack Management.
