Mariska Hargitay and Christopher MeloniIt's only been a month since Christopher Meloni stepped down from 'Law & Order: Special Victims Unit,' but producers are reportedly screen-testing his possible replacements in New York today.

Production on the upcoming Season 13 is due to get underway soon and, according to Deadline.com, 'SVU' creator/executive producer Dick Wolf and NBC have narrowed the field to a short list of five.

The actors, who have all doubtless just spent a sleepless night in the Big Apple rehearsing their lines, have been named as: Danny Pino ('Cold Case'), Kevin Alejandro ('True Blood,' 'Southland'), David Conrad ('Ghost Whisperer'), Michael Raymond-James ('Terriers') and Rhys Coiro ('Entourage').

Each one will test today with Meloni's co-star, Mariska Hargitay, who plays Det. Olivia Benson on the drama. Both Alejandro and Raymond-James recently guest-starred on 'SVU,' so could be feeling like they've got the edge.

'True Blood' Books 'Southland''s Kevin Alejandro

by Laura Prudom, posted Jan 4th 2010 11:15AM
Hunky 'Southland' star Kevin Alejandro will be trading the mean streets of L.A. for the backwater town of Bon Temps when he joins the cast of 'True Blood' for its upcoming third season, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.

Alejandro is best known for his recurring roles on 'Shark,' 'Drive,' 'Weeds' and 'Ugly Betty,' in which he played Hilda's ill-fated flame, Santos. According to THR, the actor is expected to appear in almost every episode of the vampire drama's next season, where he'll play Jesus Velasquez, a Latino orderly who works at a care facility where Ruby Jean Reynolds (Alfre Woodard) is staying and subsequently becomes romantically involved with her son, Lafayette (scene-stealer Nelsan Ellis).

The cast of Drive
(S01E01/S01E02)
To be honest, I was sold on this one long before we finally got a look at what the Drive team has been working on all this time. I count myself as a Tim Minear fan, so his involvement was enough to get me interested. Add in a cast including Nathan Fillion (Firefly), Melanie Lynskey (Two And A Half Men), Kevin Alejandro (Sleeper Cell), Kristin Lehman (Tilt), Dylan Baker (The Book Of Daniel), and Taryn Manning (Hustle & Flow), and you really have something.

Drive -- An early look

When I first heard the general premise for Drive, I instantly thought of Cannonball Run. The Cannonball Run is a movie a fondly remember watching time and again as a kid. Tons of money on the line, fast cars, hot women ... I mean hell, I was a hormone-filled kid somewhere between 10 and 13 years old when I first saw this flick, so cut me some slack.

While there is the obvious similarity with the whole race-around-the-country thing with Cannonball Run, after watching the rough-cut first episode of Drive I can start by telling you one way where the two differ: The Cannonball Run was for pussies.
