Alana De La GarzaFans of the mothership 'Law & Order' take note: Alana De La Garza is joining the cast of NBC's struggling 'Law & Order: Los Angeles.' Hooray! And it gets better: She's playing her 'Law & Order' character, ADA Connie Rubirosa.

According to Deadline Hollywood, the L&O veteran completes the casting overhaul that began with the dismissal of three actors and and the move of Alfred Molina's character to detective.

De La Garza joined 'Law & Order' in season 17 and was with the show until it ended in May 2010.

"I hope fans of the 'mothership' will be happy to see the return of Alana's character, Connie Rubirosa, one of the longest-running assistant prosecutors on 'Law & Order,'" Dick Wolf, the show's creator, said. "Alana has a huge following and it will be interesting to follow her character as she comes to terms with Los Angeles justice."

In doing so, she stars in her first leading role as Harper Grace in 'Seven Deadly Sins' (Sun., May 23, 8PM ET). The TV movie takes the notion of the "seven deadly sins" and weaves them in a modern high school setting-the film has the look and feel of modern day teen dramedies such as 'Gossip Girl' and 'The O.C.,' with fast dialogue, a group of kids who might think they're a little too grown up than they really are. And as you might suspect, some trouble goes down.

TV Squad spoke to Walker from her home in Manhattan about high school backstabbing, her own recent exploits with the seven sins and her future projects.
