Dean Norris Joins Law & Order: Organized Crime In This New Role

Stabler’s mother asked and Dean Norris answered. In a promo for the upcoming week’s episode, “Deliver Us From Evil,” we caught a glimpse of Dean Norris playing the brother of Christopher Meloni’s Elliot Stabler. Yep, the drama’s just getting started.

Who Is Randall Stabler In “Law & Order: Organized Crime”

In a previous statement, NBC described the brand new character, Randall, as a successful real-estate agent who has a “strained relationship [with his brother] due to a disagreement about their father.”

At the moment, we don’t know what drama Randall’s presence will inject into “Organized Crime” or how long he plans to be sticking around, but one thing’s for sure, we’re about to see a bigger sibling rivalry than Hank and Walt in “Breaking Bad.”

As for his reason for finally showing up, season 4 premiere did a nice job of setting it up. Apparently Stabler’s mother’s dementia has progressed and the only one she wishes to “touch” her is Randall.

So, on behalf of his sick mom, Stabler reachers out to his brother, but when Randall shows up and asks him “are you glad to see me?” The look on his face plainly spelled out the two-letter word answer: NO!

However, Randall won’t be the only Stabler brother fans get to meet this season. As they say, trouble comes in twos and threes, meaning fans will get to meet the youngest Stabler brother as well.

Played by “The Right Stuff’s” Matthew Trotter, “Joe Jr.” was dishonorably discharged from the army and now works for a wine merchant. Already, this family reunion promises to come with sizzling tension.

Apart from the drama, there may be a sad end in sight for Ellen Burstyn’s Bernie Stabler. If she doesn’t make it to the end of the season, we might at least see Mariska Hargitay’s Olivia Benson come to comfort Stabler.

The two are, after all, as thick as thieves. Their relationship is also something fans hope can be explored further.

Organized Crime follows Stabler’s return “to the NYPD to battle organized crime after a devastating personal loss,” per a press release by NBC.

“However, the city and police department have changed dramatically in the decade he’s been away, and he must adapt to a criminal justice system in the midst of its own moment of reckoning.”
