Law & Order: Organized Crime recently gave a funny behind-the-scenes look at the show. The Law & Order twitter account has been trying to make up for the summer hiatus by keeping fans entertained with funny little posts about the show. This time, we got behind-the-scenes insight with a stunning star.

The photo post, which says “In the trailer vs. in action,” shows off actress Danielle Moné Truitt featuring a selfie in the trailer and a photo of her on the show. The actress plays Sergeant Ayanna Bell on the hit procedural.

Before Law & Order: Organized Crime, Truitt had roles on Chicago Med, Deputy, Rebel and The Princess and The Frog. Now, she’s one of Organized Crime‘s leading players.

Sergeant Bell and Elliot Stabler didn’t necessarily adjust to partnership easily. The two were at odds from the start, frequently butting heads. But over the course of the season, the two form a bond. However, Bell’s wife, Denise, still isn’t a fan of Stabler and his often rough ways.

‘Law & Order: Organized Crime’ Star Dylan McDermott Says it’s the ‘Show To Watch’

Some actors take on projects and wind up not loving the end result. That definitely wasn’t the case for Dylan McDermott. While McDermott loves crime shows, the actor, who plays bad guy Richard Wheatley, said that Law & Order: Organized Crime goes where other procedurals don’t.

“This is the show to watch because you get to go home with the bad guy,” McDermott told Live With Kelly and Ryan. “That’s me. You get to meet my family. You get to see, you know, the intimate details of who this guy is. So it’s not like a regular ‘Law & Order’ where, you know, you meet the bad guy, they chase him, they get him, and it’s over.”

Wheatley is a suspect for the murder of Detective Elliot Stabler’s wife and is the center of the show’s premise. Organized Crime follows former SVU Detective Elliot Stabler’s return to the force after an assassination attempt meant for him wound up killing his wife. The man responsible? Richard Wheatley.

But the show wouldn’t be possible without characters both allied with Stabler and opposed to him. McDermott thinks that his character makes quite the “formidable foe.”

“Stabler definitely needs a foe, a formidable foe. Otherwise, the show wouldn’t work. Because that kind of conflict, that standoff is so necessary on a show like this. So, you have to have somebody who can take him on, and I think that Richard can take on Stabler. In fact, he looks forward to it,” McDermott told TV Line.

With a season finale as shocking as the one for Law & Order: Organized Crime and a big cast to both root for and root against, season 2 should definitely be action-packed. The show will return this fall.
