We finally know who’s playing the new Stabler brother on Law & Order: Organized Crime. Find out who it is and what impact they have on Season 4.

Law & Order: SVU fans know that Elliot Stabler (Christopher Meloni) comes from a large family with three brothers and two sisters. However, aside from his mother, Bernadette (Ellen Burstyn), none of the other Stablers have been featured on either SVU or Law & Order: Organized Crime. 

That will be changing as Season 4 has Stabler meeting two of his brothers. The first is Randall, the eldest brother, who dropped out of the family to be a real estate magnate. He’s reunited with Elliot on a case, but the pair have problems stemming from their relationship with their late father. Dean Norris (Breaking Bad) has already been cast in the role. 

Now, younger brother Joe Jr. will enter. The character is described as having spent a decade in the Army before being dishonorably discharged under dubious circumstances. He now works for a British wine merchant and seems to be hiding a secret from the older brother he idolizes. 

Law & Order: Organized Crime cast: Who is Michael Trotter?

A relative newcomer, Michael Trotter’s credits include Underground, Inhumans, The Resident, and CSI: Vegas. His big breakout was playing astronaut Gus Grissom in Disney+’s adaptation of the best-selling book The Right Stuff. 

As it happens, Law & Order: SVU fans may recognize Trotter as he played Teddy Muncy, the troublesome younger brother of SVU cop Grace Muncy (Molly Burnett). Another fun connection is that Trotter is married to Jamie Gray Hyder, who played Kat Tamin on Law & Order: SVU before exiting the series in 2021. 

Like Norris, it’s a guest star role, but Trotter should be interesting showing more of the Stabler family dynamics and sparking Law & Order: Organized Crime Season 4 even more.
