There will be some new faces at the front of Law & Order: Criminal Intent's ninth season, and they have just cast the final new actor. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Mary Elizabeth Mastsrantonio has been cast as the new captain in Law & Order: Criminal Intent.

She will replace Eric Bogosian, who played Captain Danny Ross on the show for the past three years, and will be the new captain, coming from a working-class background. Saffron Burrows will also be a new addition to the series this year, replacing Julianne Nicholson, who bowed out of the show after the birth of her child.

Series stars Vincent D'Onofrio and Kathryn Erbe have also left the series, and this new season will take on a much lighter tone and follow Jeff Goldblum's Zach Nichols, who is now the squad's lead detective.
