In the criminal justice system, it’s hard to resist casting Elisabeth Röhm as an assistant district attorney.

The Law & Order actress is joining CBS’ upcoming procedural Stalker as a series regular, according to Deadline.

Röhm’s character, a Los Angeles Deputy District Attorney named Amanda, is assigned to the stalker-thwarting Threat Assessment Unit. But like an Avril Lavigne song, things will go and get complicated for the single mom of a grade-school aged boy when she winds up working with Dylan McDermott’s Jack Larsen, a man with whom she shares a romantic past.

Deadline notes that Röhm’s role was “listed as a lead on the pilot’s breakdown” but wound up being only a brief presence in the initial episode when played by October Road‘s Elizabeth Bogush.

Röhm’s other major credits include Angel, The Client List and American Hustle.

Stalker premieres Wednesday, Oct. 1 at 10/9c on CBS.

    Is it because she’s a lesbian?

    (in case you didn’t get this, no, it’s not the actress I’m referring to.)

    Great to see Serena Southerlyn from Law & Order back on TV.

  3. Matt says:

    Not a great actress…I was looking forward to the show until now.

    • Whatevah says:

      You typed exactly what I was thinking. I’ve always wondered who she knows. I can’t watch the Law and Order episodes she’s in. I am bummed about this. I really wanted to watch this show *sigh*

        On L&O she played a blah character(although after Angie Harmon they all were blah). But in other things she’s done, she’s a much better actress.

    • Georgia Madman says:

      Funny, I wasn’t going to watch the show until now.

    Great addition. Looking forward to seeing her. And, yeah, that was one of the most bizarre send offs in L&O history. Funny how the most of the women who decided to leave L&O – Hennessey, Parisse and Rohm all got hateful endings – the first two great examples of misogyny. .
