Playing the ruthless Luca Santori on CBS Daytime's The Young and the Restless just might have been the perfect warm-up for Miles Gaston Villanueva's next big role. The talented actor has been cast as Lyle Menendez in NBC's upcoming true crime event series Law & Order: True Crime — The Menendez Murders

Gus Halper will portray Lyle's brother Eric in the eight-episode series. Edie Falco leads the cast as famed defense attorney Leslie Abramson

By creating a true crime spinoff platform for Law & Order, NBC hopes to cash in on the craze driven by podcasts like Serial and S-Town, as well as FX's smash hit American Crime Story: The People vs. OJ Simpson
