Heather Graham Law & Order True Crime

TVLine Items: L&O True Crime Adds Trio, Younger After Show and More

Flowers in the Attic matriarch Heather Graham is getting entangled with another twisted family.

The actress has joined the cast of producer Dick Wolf’s anthology series Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders.

Graham — whose other TV credits include Californication and Scrubs — will play Judalon Smyth, the emotionally fragile mistress of the Menendez brothers’ therapist Dr. Oziel.

Additionally, Elizabeth Reaser (Grey’s Anatomy) has been tapped to portray deputy district attorney Pam Bozanich, who is assigned to the murders of Jose and Kitty Menendez. Larry Cedar (Deadwood) will co-star as Kitty’s older brother Milton Andersen, who covets the family’s fortune.

The Menendez Murders cast already includes The Sopranos‘ Edie Falco (as defense attorney Leslie Abramson), ER‘s Anthony Edwards (as judge Stanley Weisberg), Parenthood‘s Sam Jaeger (as Detective Les Zoeller) and Law & Order: Criminal Intent‘s Julianne Nicholson (as defense lawyer Jill Lansing).

Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders premieres Tuesday, Sept. 26 at 10/9c on NBC.
