Belzer will continue in his role of the tough detective John Munch on the "Law & Order" spin off. In the new series, Detective Munch will move to the elite Special Victims Unit of the NYPD.
"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" begins production this week in New York City. In a unique joint broadcast schedule, the new series will run on NBC, Mondays from 9-10 p.m. (ET) and on USA, 13 days later, Sundays at 11 p.m.
"I have always loved the character of John Munch, and Richard's unique sardonic wit will blend very well with the dynamic we are establishing on `Law & Order: Special Victims Unit,' with Chris, Mariska and Dann," Wolf said.
"This is one conspiracy in which I was a willing participant," commented Belzer, famous for being a conspiracy theorist.
