Paula Patton To Join LAW & ORDER SVU Cast

Paula Patton

Actress Paula Patton is in final negotiations to join the cast of NBC’s LAW & ORDER SVU as the assistant district attorney according to Michael Ausiello. If Patton agrees to a contract, she will succeed Sharon Stone as the ADA on the long running drama series.

Stone joined the cast of SVU last April as ADA Jo Marlowe during a four episode stretch, replacing “SVU” veteran Stephanie March as the ADA. March has since moved on from the series. No one from NBC or Wolf Films had any comment regarding the negotiations with Patton, but she is believed to be a permanent replacement in the role of ADA.

Patton previously starred in the movie “Precious” as alternative high school teacher Ms. Rain.
