Harry Connick Jr. to guest-star on 'Law & Order: SVU'
For all you "Law & Order: SVU" peeps worried about Mariska Hargitay's future on the show, get a hold of yourself! Hargitay lightened her load after adopting a child last year, but she'll be in every episode when the show returns, NBC Entertainment Chairman Bob Greenblatt said Friday at the Television Critics Assn. press tour in Pasadena.
And Hargitay's character, Det. Olivia Benson, will be getting herself some romance action in the process with a little help from Harry Connick Jr. The crooner (who often moonlights as an actor) will join the show in a four-episode arc, beginning Jan. 18., playing an assistant district attorney on the show. Here's a look at their steamy connection.
