Skeet Ulrich Protects And Serves On <i>Law &amp; Order: Los Angeles</i>

Not content with letting Lost star Henry Ian Cusick steal the Law & Order spotlight, it's now been revealed that Skeet Ulrich has signed on for the leading role in NBC's latest incarnation of the show, Law & Order: Los Angeles.

Ulrich will play Detective Rex Winters, and Deadline provides a nice description of the role:

Detective Rex Winters, a handsome, rugged former Marine with the intuition of a natural cop. Winters was 6 weeks on the job when the Rodney King riots occurred, which shaped his entire policy of policing. His personal life is a bit of a mess: his first marriage ended when he had an affair - with his former partner, to whom he is now married.

There are four other major roles remaining to be filled: a captain, a prosecutor, his assistant and Rex's partner, thirtysomething detective TJ Jaruszalski. Where do I sign the campaign for Ulrich's Scream co-star Matthew Lillard to land the TJ Jaruszalski role? We can totally forget about that one time Lillard played a skeevy SVU bad guy, right?
