Alec Baldwin is returning to scripted TV for the first time since 30 Rock ended with a role on Law & Order: SVU, and we have an exclusive sneak peek.

“Criminal Stories” is a very special episode of SVU: It’s the first time series star Mariska Hargitay has stepped behind the camera as a director. Baldwin’s appearance has been a long time coming. The former 30 Rock star is good friends with Hargitay, and the two had been talking about getting him on SVU for some time. Get a sneak peek at the two together below.

“When Mariska told me that she was directing, I thought, ‘It’s about time,'” Baldwin said. “It’s very daunting to direct, because you’re insisting people see you in a different way. You’re kind of giving people, not orders, but suggesting things to them in a way you didn’t before. You’re relationship completely changes for that week…She’s doing a fantastic job.”

In “Criminal Stories,” Baldwin plays Jimmy “Mac” MacArthur, an old-school newspaper columnist who gets full access to Sergeant Benson (Hargitay) and the SVU squad for a story. But when the rape case of a young Muslim woman (guest star Summer Bishil) escalates to a hate crime, Jimmy declares the whole thing a hoax. But is it?

In January, Hargitay told E! News she was itching to get in the director’s chair.

“It’s a long time coming; I’ve wanted to do it for a while. There are a lot of things that I’ve learned and collected. I know how to get performances, I know what buttons to push in people and I’ve been doing it for a long time…Since I’ve been on SVU, I get more joy, sometimes, from helping somebody else with their performance than my own,” she said. “That’s when I got the idea…It’s just this idea of helping to tell the story or even help people get in touch, like how people help me to get to my soul. I’m up for the challenge…It feels like a natural progression.”

Law & Order: SVU airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. on NBC.


E! News showed a sneak peek of Criminal Stories this evening. I uploaded the clip to YouTube. May contain spoilers so don’t watch if you wish to remain spoiler free!

Dana: You guys have been giving so many Law & Order: SVU goodies lately, don’t stop now! I need to know what the heck is going on with Benson! Is she going to become a mama to that poor family-less boy from earlier this season?
Look for a follow up with Baby Boy Doe in episode 19. “That baby right now is caught in the system. No one has come forward, no one is in the system who is related to the kid and the kid is getting shuttled from foster home to foster home,” executive producer Warren Leight told us. “Even the bureaucrats in charge of the kid are being rotated. So it seems to me the only one who is really concerned for Baby Boy Doe, aside from our fans, is Olivia Benson. So, in 19 we’ll get just a little follow up on it. But Baby Boy Doe doesn’t have a name or a family yet and Olivia is showing up.”


Katie went behind the scenes of Mariska’s directorial debut. The clip aired today and I uploaded the video to YouTube for those who missed it. It’s a cute video and we get to see Mariska directing a little bit 🙂 I recorded the video on my phone so the quality may not be the best. Sorry!

SVU 15×17- Gambler’s Fallacy Captures

I’m so happy these pictures are finally released! You can check out 15 behind the scenes pictures of Mariska directing and promotional episode stills below. The episode, Criminal Stories, airs next Wednesday.

Will the repercussions continue in next week’s episode directed by Mariska Hargitay?
It doesn’t deal with my storyline specifically but that will come back. It was so much fun having Mariska direct that and having Alec Baldwin on-set. It’s so great to see such a great actor at work. And it was great to see our family here, the cast and crew, rally around our leading lady. They put together a really solid episode.

How would you describe Mariska as a director?
Awesome. My first scene with her, I was so impressed with this moment she created that wasn’t on the page. I trusted her. But, she’s been at it for years. One of the big reasons the show is as successful as it is is that she does have a role in it and does have a say.

“Law & Order: SVU” airs Wednesdays at 9/8c on NBC.
