    Rohm Closing 'Law & Order' Case

    Rohm Closing 'Law & Order' Case

    NEW YORK (Hollywood Reporter) - Elisabeth Rohm is expected to end her record-setting stint on NBC's veteran crime drama "Law & Order" sometime next season to pursue other acting opportunities.

    Rohm, who plays Assistant District Attorney Serena Southerlyn, is locked for the first 13 episodes of the show's 15th season this fall. Beyond that, there is a possibility for her to do a few more episodes before she departs.

    "Lis has done a terrific job as ADA Serena Southerlyn and she has been a consummate professional," "Law & Order" creator/executive producer Dick Wolf said in a statement. "We knew she had other career interests and opportunities and she graciously agreed to stay through the transition with Dennis (Farina), for at least 13 episodes of the new season."

    Last month, Farina was tapped to join the cast of the Emmy-winning series as Detective Joe Fontana. He will replace longtime star Jerry Orbach, who is expected to join the cast of the upcoming fourth "Law & Order" series, "Trial by Jury."

    Rohm, the fifth actor to play the role of the ADA, has made her character the longest-running ADA on the show, having replaced Angie Harmon in 2001 to work alongside Executive ADA Jack McCoy, played by Sam Waterston since 1994.

    "Sam Waterston has been a great teacher and friend who has taught me about taking risks, and it is time to put that knowledge into action. It is because of 'Law & Order' that I have so many opportunities come my way," Rohm said.

    Rohm, who is shooting "Miss Congeniality II," already has several television projects in the works. Before "Law & Order," she starred in the soap "One Life To Live."

    I was never that crazy about her. I would absolutely love it if Angie Harmon came back.

    Same here AJane. I think Elizabeth's acting is a little stiff, I hope the replacement is a much better actress. I loved Angie Harmon too, it would be great if she was coming back. I'm curious to see how Law & Order would do now that it's going up against CSI: NY.

    I know I'm in the minority but Elisabeth is my favorite ADA. Oh well. The day they get rid of Sam Waterson is the day I stop watching. Now he really makes the show, especially since they got rid of Jerry Orbach and his "one liners."

    And this is just another reason that I love to be Canadian! They're showing Law & Order on Mondays prior to CSI: Miami, and then CSI: NY in it's new slot on Wednesday nights! Perfect lineup for me!!!
