It's a 'Homicide: Life on the Street' reunion tonight on 'Law & Order: SVU.' Andre Braugher begins his guest arc on the long-running NBC procedural, reuniting with fellow 'Homicide' star Richard Belzer. However, Braugher isn't reprising his 'Homicide' role of Det. Frank Pembleton -- instead, he's playing Bayard Ellis, a new high-profile defense attorney.
In 'True Believers,' a music student, played by 'Medium' star Sofia Vassilieva, is raped in her own apartment. The detectives think they have a pretty solid case ... until Braugher's character becomes the suspect's attorney.
Below, check out the first meeting between Braugher's new character and Belzer's John Munch, plus a behind-the-scenes interview with Vassilieva.
