A STRING OF HATE CRIMES HITS CLOSE TO HOME FOR DETECTIVE TUTUOLA (ICE-T), AND THE SVU SQUAD SUSPECTS A COVER UP WHEN A PRIVATE SCHOOL TEACHER (GUEST START TONY HALE) IS SIMILARLY ATTACKED. JANE ADAMS, DYLAN MINNETTE AND MARTHA STEWART ALSO GUEST STAR.

As Detective Tutuola’s (Ice-T) son Ken (Ernest Waddell) prepares to tell his father that he is getting married, his fiance is brutally assaulted by a street gang. He’s the latest in a string of recent hate crimes against gay men, and before the SVU squad can arrest a suspect, a school teacher (guest star Tony Hale), is similarly brutalized even though he doesn’t fit the pattern. As the detectives search for a connection, they learn that he was dismissed from an elite private school for having an inappropriate relationship with a student (guest star Dylan Minnette, NBC’s “Awake.”) In trying to make their case, they quickly realize the facts don’t add up and another teacher (guest star Jane Adams) may hold the clues to what really happened. Also starring Mariska Hargitay (Detective Olivia Benson), Richard Belzer (Sergeant John Munch), Danny Pino (Detective Nick Amaro) and Kelli Giddish (Detective Amanda Rollins.) Special appearance by Martha Stewart and Stephanie March (ADA Alex Cabot).




SVU returns with all new episodes Wednesday April 11th and we finally have a promo!




ONE OF BENSON’S (MARISKA HARGITAY) SOLVED CASES IS REOPENED, AND THE SUBSEQUENT LEGAL BATTLE CAUSES FRICTION BETWEEN EXECUTIVE ADA DAVID HADEN (GUEST STAR HARRY CONNICK HR.), BAYARD ELLIS (ANDRE BRAUGHER) AND BENSON. MARKS CONSUELOS ALSO GUEST STARS.
A rape victim is brought to the hospital after a harrowing hours-long ordeal, and Benson (Hargitay) recognizes the suspect’s M.O. from a case she solved eight years ago. The jailed rapist confessed to Benson after a tough interrogation but has been claiming his innocence ever since his conviction. The SVU squad is forced to reopen Benson’s old case to determine if they are dealing with a copycat or a case of wrongful imprisonment. As Benson’s detective work is challenged, her personal relationship with Executive ADA Haden (Connick) is also placed in jeopardy when Counselor Bayard Ellis (Braugher) gets involved. Also starring Ice-T (Detective Odafin Tutuola), Dann Florek (Captain Donald Cragen), Danny Pino (Detective Nick Amaro) and Kelli Giddish (Detective Amanda Rollins.)

Don’t worry Olivia Benson fans. Law & Order: SVU star Mariska Hargitay says she’ll keep solving crimes on the NBC drama next season.

“It’s looking that way,” Hargitay confirmed to TV Guide Magazine on Sunday at a benefit in Los Angeles for her Joyful Heart Foundation, which supports survivors of sexual assault, domestic violence and child abuse. “I think the writing is great. I absolutely love my cast. I think Danny Pino [Det. Amaro] has invigorated that show. [Guest star] Harry [Connick Jr.] has reinvigorated me. And dealing with these issues is more than a TV show to me. It excites me to be on a show that sheds light on darkness. With the combination of SVU and Joyful Heart, my life is really complete and extremely fulfilling, because we watch people’s lives change right in front of us.”

It’s a good thing there’s another season to come, especially now that the relationship between Benson and Connick’s character, David Haden, is heating up. “It’s going to get complicated, though,” warns Hargitay. “But when Chris Meloni was around there was no way Olivia could ever be with anybody else. Now that he’s gone, I think she has room in her heart.”

As long as she also makes room to solve cases. “The case we’re about to work on is one that deals with Fleet Week, and sailors that may or may not be responsible for a rape,” Pino reveals. “Amaro starts to realize that maybe the original attacker wasn’t really guilty. He starts to look at the new evidence and starts to question [the original investigation].” Mark Consuelos will guest star as a potential suspect.

But re-opening a case won’t score Amaro any points with his new colleagues. “There are some fireworks involved, since he’s one of the new guys and he’s coming in questioning what the unit has been doing in the past. You can imagine it doesn’t go over well,” Pino says. “But I think he does achieve communication, and there’s a catharsis within the unit — ‘We’re really a team. It’s not about going after each other, it’s about going after justice and doing what’s right.’ And ultimately we all come out as winners.”

Although Pino previously worked on Cold Case, another procedural drama dealing with violent crimes, the actor admits that SVU has been a different experience emotionally. “On Cold Case you were dealing with a box of evidence. Here you’re dealing with someone who’s very much alive,” he says. “It’s surprising with what the show is about how much fun we have [off screen]. I think we have to keep it light on set, because the themes that we’re dealing with are so tragic.”

Cheers to Mariska Hargitay for doing career-best work on Law & Order: SVU.

You’d think after 13 years of playing NYPD sex-crimes Det. Olivia Benson — and losing her longtime on-screen partner, Christopher Meloni, at the end of last season — the Emmy winner might be tempted to phone in her performance. But between her rock-solid new costars Danny Pino and Kelli Giddish and brilliant new showrunner Warren Leight, the Emmy winner seems creatively reinvigorated.

Hargitay has shown off Benson’s softer side through her ongoing romance with Harry Connick Jr.’s ADA David Haden as well as in this week’s episode, when she attempted to help her troubled half-brother (Michael Weston) regain custody of his kids. No wonder the actress has already agreed to return for another season. It’s up to NBC: Renew SVU!

Five years after Law & Order: SVU fans met Det. Olivia Benson’s estranged half-brother, Simon Marsden (Michael Weston) is back and in desperate need of her help .

“He’s not really well-equipped for the world as it is,” Weston says in this exclusive behind-the-scenes video. “He has a low self-esteem and an inability to push through difficult circumstances with his head up, and so he finds himself getting the short end of the stick a lot and feeling a little sorry for himself.”

In Wednesday’s episode (10/9c, NBC) Benson (Mariska Hargitay) calls on defense attorney Bayard Ellis (returning guest star Andre Braugher) to help when child services threatens to take away Simon’s kids. “He needs his family just like I think Mariska’s character also does,” Weston says. “This is his way of finding his sister, I think, in some deep convoluted, subconscious way. He tracks her down even to his own self-detriment.”

But can Olivia really help him? That remains to be seen. “The beauty of their scenes together is that they are both aching for that connection with a part of their real family.”

Former Big Love star Chloe Sevigny is returning to TV with a guest role on NBC’s Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, TVGuide.com has learned exclusively.

Sources tell us that Sevigny will play a stay-at-home mom who is attacked and kidnapped while video-chatting with her husband, who’s halfway around the world. She is slated to start shooting the episode next week. NBC declined to comment on the casting.

Sevigny is the latest big-name actor to visit SVU this season following Andre Braugher and Harry Connick Jr., the latter of whom is currently appearing in a four-episode arc as the love interest of Mariska Hargitay’s Olivia Benson.
