RELATED: More ‘LOLA’ Shakeup – Skeet Ulrich Out Too
EXCLUSIVE: The ADAs on NBC’s Law & Order: Los Angeles will be without assistance for now. As part of a creative overhaul of the Law & Order spinoff, co-stars Regina Hall and Megan Boone are departing the series. Hall plays ADA Evelyn Price, who works for ADA Morales (Alfred Molina); Boone plays DDA Lauren Stanton, who works under Joe Dekker (Terrence Howard). Boone is exiting completely, while Hall may return for a couple of episodes. The departures follow the early exit of series regular Wanda de Jesus who left in early September, before LOLA had premiered. I hear LOLA‘s casting director has been reading actresses for a potential new female ADA role on the show, which is now filming episode 12 and is returning with originals next month. NBC and Wolf Films have been discussing tweaks to LOLA since its launch, with conversations still underway. After a solid debut, the series has been middling in the ratings and has drawn some criticism from die-hard Law & Order fans. But it has been the highest-rated new NBC drama this fall, averaging a 3.0 demo rating.
