Josh Charles is returning to court.
The former Good Wife star has joined Dick Wolf’s forthcoming anthology series Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
The eight-episode first installment of the anthology is described as a “gripping in-depth dramatization” of the famed murder case that took America by storm in the early 1990s. When brothers Lyle and Erik Menendez were tried on national TV for brutally killing their parents in Beverly Hills on Aug. 20, 1989, their story became a nationwide obsession. Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders dives into the players, the crime and the media circus, detailing the day-to-day battles of the trial and unveiling the shocking truth of what really went down behind the scenes.
The Emmy-nominated Charles will play Dr. Jerome Oziel, the Menendez brothers’ controversial psychiatrist who plays a pivotal role in the case.
The cast also includes Edie Falco, Gus Halper, Miles Gaston Villanueva, Chris Bauer, Cliff Chamberlain, Lolita Davidovich, Anthony Edwards, Carlos Gomez, Heather Graham, Sam Jaeger, Constance Marie, Julianne Nicholson and Elizabeth Reaser.
