Steven Hill, 78, the last remaining original cast member of NBC’s “Law & Order,” will be off the show by fall, to be replaced by Oscar winner Dianne Wiest (“Hannah and Her Sisters”), 54, reports New York’s Daily News. The departure of Hill, who’s been on since the program (TV’s longest-running drama) began in 1990, is by “mutual agreement,” according to a show spokeswoman. Wiest, like Hill, will play a Manhattan district attorney.
