Casting News - February 2, 2021

NBC's Law & Order: Organized Crime and Netflix's The Lincoln Lawyer.

  • Becki Newton, Jazz Raycole and Angus Sampson have joined the cast of the upcoming drama starring Manuel Garcia-Rulfo. Newton previously starred for four seasons in ABC's Ugly Betty and two seasons in HBO's Divorce. Raycole starred for two seasons in BET's The Quad. Sampson starred for two seasons in Hulu's Shut Eye.
  • Newton will play Lorna, Mickey's (Garcia-Rulfo) second ex-wife and a constant confidante who works as his office manager, running the business side of Mickey's practice. Part secretary and part therapist, she is supportive and encouraging of Mickey, but she's also concerned about him taking on more than he can handle in his first important case back after rehab.
  • Raycole will play Izzy, Mickey's client, a young former addict charged with grand larceny for stealing a necklace to support her habit. She's clean now - a fact that Mickey can relate to - and he not only gets her acquitted but lets her pay off her bill by working as his driver.
  • Sampson will play Cisco, a former biker gang member who now serves as Mickey's investigator, friend, and when necessary, bodyguard. He is an imposing figure with a keen mind and a deep well of contacts on both sides of the law that help him do his job.
  • Tamara Taylor has joined the cast of the upcoming drama starring Christopher Meloni and Dylan McDermott. She previously starred for eleven seasons in FOX's Bones and one season in Netflix's October Faction. She has also recurred on Netflix's Altered Carbon and ABC's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
  • No details were immediately announced about the character she will be playing.
