Kathy Griffin to Play Lesbian Activist on 'Law & Order: SVU' (Hello, Emmy!)

by Chris Jordan, posted Nov 16th 2009 2:34PM
Kathy Griffin Law & Order: SVUD-list diva Kathy Griffin is about to star in an upcoming episode of 'Law & Order SVU', TV Guide is reporting.

Griffin will play a lesbian activist in the episode, airing Feb. 10 on NBC. Filming is scheduled to begin early next year.

Since Griffin is best known for her comedic work ('Suddenly Susan'; Bravo's 'My Life on the D-List'), we can only hope that the awards-hungry funny lady has booked 'SVU' to win another Emmy. And who can blame her? 'SVU' has dominated the guest acting Emmy categories in recent years, with awards going to Ellen Burstyn, Cynthia Nixon and Marcia Gay Harden.

Naveen Andrews'Lost' fans are about to get a double dose of Naveen Andrews.

TV Guide is reporting that Andrews will guest on an upcoming episode of 'Law & Order: SVU,' airing right around the time of 'Lost''s final season premiere in Jan., 2010.

Does this mean that Andrews' character, Sayid Jarrah, will make an early exit? So far no details have been announced regarding his 'SVU' guest spot, nor his presence in 'Lost' season 6. What we do know is that Andrews will begin taping in the "next week or so" in New York, while the cast of 'Lost' reportedly films episode 6 in Hawaii.

Benjamin Bratt back on the beat at Law & Order

by Kona Gallagher, posted Oct 25th 2009 11:06AM
law and order
I started watching Law & Order during the Briscoe and Green days, so I don't know a whole lot about Detective Rey Curtis, Briscoe's former partner from '94-'99. What I do know is that Benjamin Bratt is pulling a Chris Noth and returning to the show that gave him his big break.

Bratt, whose A&E series, The Cleaner, was just canceled, is reprising his role as Detective Rey Curtis on the original Law & Order. However, it doesn't look like the current crime-fighting duo of Lupo (Jeremy Sisto) and Bernard (Anthony Anderson) have anything to worry about: Bratt is only signed up for one episode.

Wentworth Miller goes from Prison Break to Law & Order: SVU

by Allison Waldman, posted Jul 3rd 2009 10:32AM
wentworth_miller_prison_breakMore good news out of NBC's top drama. Wentworth Miller is guesting on Law and Order: SVU, and this time he's not going to be behind bars. The Prison Break actor will star in the September 23 premiere of Law and Order: SVU, which is kicking off its 11th season on the NBC.

Wentworth Miller's casting comes on the heels of NBC re-signing of Mariska Hargitay and Christopher Meloni to two-year extensions as the show's mainstays, Detectives Benson and Stabler, as well as the return of Stephanie March as Alex Cabot and a four-show arc for Christine Lahti. I'd say that the powers-that-be are stacking the deck with prime talent to make sure Law and Order: SVU maintains its top quality status.

Meloni & Hargitay sign on for more Law & Order: SVU

by Allison Waldman, posted Jun 30th 2009 3:25PM
Hargitay_Meloni_Law_and_order_SVUWell, that's a relief. After months of speculation that NBC would be bringing Law & Order: SVU back for the 11th season without the two stars that have anchored the show, there's good news. Mariska Hargitay and Christopher Meloni have re-signed with SVU. They pair agreed to stick with NBC's top-rated Neilsen drama for two more seasons.

Good news is probably an understatement. It's really great news because with SVU moving to Wednesday, 9 p.m., the show really didn't need to shake up the cast at this point in time. Stability mattered and NBC found a way to bring the two stars into the fold, offering them both the flexibility they sought.
