Law and Order: Organized Crime Introduces Elliot Stabler’s Youngest Brother in Season 4

Los Angeles, CA – The hit crime drama series “Law and Order: Organized Crime” has cast an actor to play the role of Elliot Stabler’s younger brother, Joe Stabler Jr., in its upcoming fourth season. Michael Trotter, known for his role in “The Right Stuff,” will take on the role of Joe Jr., according to TVLine.

In November, TVLine exclusively reported that the show planned to introduce two of the Stabler brothers in the new season. Joe Jr. is the youngest brother who served in the Army for over a decade before being dishonorably discharged. The exact reason for his discharge remains unknown. He now works as the right-hand man to a British wine merchant, and his job carries a sense of shame that prevents him from facing his older brother Elliot, who he greatly admires.

The series also revealed that Elliot’s older brother, Randall, will be portrayed by Dean Norris of “Breaking Bad” fame. Randall left the family when he was young and went on to become a successful real estate developer. However, there is longstanding tension between Elliot and Randall due to an event involving their father.

Michael Trotter, who will be playing Joe Jr., previously portrayed astronaut Gus Grissom in Disney+’s adaptation of “The Right Stuff.” His wife, Jamie Gray Hyder, also has connections to the “Law and Order” universe as she played detective Kat Tamin on “Law and Order: SVU.”

“Law and Order: Organized Crime” is set to return for its fourth season on Thursday, January 18, at 10/9c on NBC.
