Alfred Molina is bouncing back from his run on an NBC crime show — into an NBC legal drama.

The acclaimed veteran actor and former Law & Order: Los Angeles star has been cast in a multi-episode arc in the second season of Harry’s Law.

Molina will play ‪Eric Sanders, a man in his mid-late fifties who has been accused of murdering his wife. While admitting he was unhappy in his marriage and had dreamt of getting rid of her, he claims he’s innocent. After spending time in jail, he has suffered from anxiety attacks and is estranged from his daughter who believes him to be guilty of murder.

Molina’s character will be introduced in the season premiere on the show’s new night, Wednesdays, starting Sept. 21 and he will appear in three episodes.
