Michael Ausiello of Entertainment Weekly is reporting that Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio will play the new captain on Law & Order Criminal Intent. She will replace Eric Bogosian, who has played Captain Danny Ross. The name of her character is not yet available.
As fans that follow the show already know, show stars Vincent D’Onofrio, Kathryn Erbe, and Eric are all exiting the show in the season premiere 2 part episode for the new season, which will begin in March 2009, one of their characters being killed in the process.
Mastrantonio has appeared in several films, such as “The Abyss,” “The Color of Money'” and “Robin Hood Prince of Thieves.” She also had a recurring role in CBS’ "Without A Trace.”
I know it will be hard for D'Onofrio, Erbe, and Bogosian fans to be exited for this change. I wish Elzabeth the best in this new role.
