'Law & Order: CI' scoop: Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio named new captain

Law-Order-chief_lLaw & Order: CI is undergoing yet another staffing change.

Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio has been cast as the show’s new captain, sources confirm to me semi-exclusively.

She replaces Eric Bogosian, who is the latest CI vet to depart as the show shifts its focus to Jeff Goldblum and new partner Saffron Burrows.

As I previously reported, Vincent D’Onofrio, Kathryn Erbe, and Bogosian will exit after appearing in the show’s two-part season 9 premiere. Rumor has it one of the three will be carted off in a body bag.

Thoughts on Mastrantonio as the new boss? Sound off below! (Additional reporting by Keith Staskiewicz)
