Law & Order: SVU snags James Brolin for season premiere

james brolinOf all the Law & Orders -- and I watch all three -- Special Victims Unit is the one that indulges in more character-oriented storytelling. That's all for the better, as far as I'm concern, whether that means going inside Olivia's mind as she's struggled with knowing she was a child of rape, or suffering when Elliot's marriage was on the rocks.

When the new season of SVU returns on Tuesday, September 23, we'll be getting some more character development with a special appearance by Emmy winner James Brolin.

Richard Belzer, who plays Detective Munch, mentioned Brolin's guest appearance to TV Guide, saying, "He's a great guy; he's got a big fight scene with Stabler, so that should be fun." Brolin is playing a former military man who shares a past connection with Elliot. Hmm...was Christopher Meloni ever on Pensacola: Wings of Gold? Brolin, by the way, turns 68 this Friday, July 18. Remember when he was the hot, young motorcycle-riding Dr. Steve Kiley on Marcus Welby, M.D.?

In addition to Brolin in the premiere, comic Chris Elliott will be appearing as well, playing against type as guy who may or may not be a stalker. Then again, what was he in Something About Mary? Oh, right, that was a comedy.

Belzer is expecting to get more screen time this season, especially since Adam Beach is off the canvas (his character was last seen being taken away in handcuffs after shooting a baddie -- on purpose). Belzer couldn't talk specifics, but he did hint, 'There are some big surprises coming up."

SVU is my favorite L&O, exactly for that reason - the characters and the relationship between Olivia and Elliot (Mariska Hargitay and Chris Meloni are awesome in their roles!) I'm excited for the upcoming season - you guys at tvsquad need to get on top of things and start reviewing the new eps!!
