Raising Estrogen Levels on L&O

I received an email from a dear friend and avid RagHag devotee, asking me to find out the skinny on the Law & Order casting changes for its seventeenth season.

Dude, seventeen seasons. Holy crap, that's a lot of murders.

Dennis Farina - Detective Joe Fontana - will not be returning for a third season. And this isn't really a spoiler, but Annie Parisse isn't returning next season either because her character, Assistant D.A. Alexandra Borgia, was found dead in the trunk of a car after choking on her own vomit. Milena Govich, a 29-year-old actress who was on another Dick Wolf show, Conviction, is joining the cast.

But the question is: Is Govich replacing Parisse, which would be boring and typical cuz they get a new hottie for that role every season, OR is she replacing Farina, which would actually be exciting because in the 17 years this show has been on, there has never been a female detective. We've had S. Epatha Merkerson as Lieutenant Anita Van Buren representing us females, but it would be interesting to see hot Jesse Martin working side-by-side with a woman.

Well, from what I can tell, Milena WILL be replacing Farina as the next detective. I mean, it's even in Wikipedia. There's a good write-up about the changes on Newsvine. And some more traditional news sources talk about it as well. So I think it's probably good information.

There ya go, Mrs. P. I hope this answered your questions.

If y'all have any questions about anything relating to celebrity and media - send them my way!
