Andre Braugher has found a new gig after the cancellation of TNT’s Men of a Certain Age. The Emmy Award-winning actor is in negotiations to join NBC’s Law & Order: SVU in a recurring role.

Braugher will play a defense attorney for the poor who works alongside Detective Olivia Benson (Mariska Hargitay).

NBCUniversal has come under fire recently for not having enough minority actors in lead roles. This casting is a step in the right direction.

Law & Order: SVU season premiere airs Sept 14 on NBC.
