Jesse L. Martin Exiting Law & Order


After nine seasons, Jesse L. Martin is leaving “Law & Order” and is expected to be replaced by “K-Ville” star Anthony Anderson (Transformers).

Variety says Martin will shoot one more episode of Dick Wolf’s NBC drama, with Anderson joining later this season.

Fox has never officially admitted that it and “K-Ville” are splitsville, but Anderson’s casting would seem to be the final nail in the coffin for the highly touted 2007 drama.
