SVU Exclusive: Rosie Perez, Garret Dillahunt to Anchor Explosive Episode

Rosie Perez and Garret Dillahunt will square off on an explosive episode of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit this fall about pedophiles' rights, has learned exclusively. On the fifth episode of the new season, Dillahunt ( Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles ' Cromartie, No Country for Old Men) will play the head of a pedophilia organization (think NAMBLA - or, you know, don't). "It's called 'Hardwired,'" executive producer Neal Baer says, "because they believe that pedophilia is [a genetic predestination]." Baer says the writers had the Oscar-nominated Perez (Do the Right Thing, Fearless) in mind when they wrote the role of a young sexual abuse victim's mother. "I think you'll be surprised by her performance," he says. Jim True-Frost, who you might remember from The Wire, also appears in the episode as Perez's husband and stepfather to her son. She takes legal action against Dillahunt's organization for its influence over her husband, who has been accused of abusing her child. The same episode also marks the return of two fair-haired legal ladies to the series: Defense attorney Patrice Larue (Jeri Ryan) will battle Stephanie March's Assistant District Attorney Alexandra Cabot, who starts her 10-episode run behind the prosecutor's bench that week. Not enough? Fine. Baer also tells us that the same hour will feature a "big reveal" about B.D. Wong's Dr. Huang, which will surface as a result of a confrontation he has with Det. Benson (Mariska Hargitay). Law & Order: SVU returns for its 11th season on Wednesday, Sept. 23 at 9/8c on NBC. "Hardwired" is scheduled to air in October. Source Here

Law & Order: Special Victims Unit veteran Adam Beach is set to go on board for HBO polygamist drama Big Love 's fourth season for a season-long recurring role as Tommy Flute, the son of Bill's (Bill Paxton) partner, the head of the Indian Gaming Casino Jerry Flute (Robert Beltran). Beach, 36, is best known for his roles as Marine Private First Class Ira Hayes in Flags of Our Fathers and Private Ben Yahzee in Windtalkers. The HBO drama announced previously that it was on a lookout for two additions to its cast, including Barb's (Jeanne Tripplehorn) pre-teen niece and Cindy's (Judith Hoag) daughter and closeted gay Mormon and new Trustee of the Juniper Creek Assets who might also be a love interest for Alby (Matt Ross).

Of course, it'd be weird seeing the guy in a different setting, after four years of getting into prisons, breaking out, and generally running away on Prison Break . Of course, we now know that the former good guy/bad guy (depending on who you are) is playing pretty much a good guy on the SVU season premiere, as an NYPD officer who saves a rape victim. While NBC isn't really giving that many details on storylines for the show yet, they posted a sneak peek on the season premiere on the show's website. Yep, your first glance at Wentworth after attempting to take down the Company and paying too much for it. The video's right below, and my quick takes as well. Souce Here

SOURCE TAKEN FROM DIGITAL SPY SITE Meloni 'SVU' return 'not purely financial' Law & Order: SVU star Christopher Meloni has said that the problems with his show contract were not entirely financial. Earlier this year, Meloni and co-star Mariska Hargitay stalled on renewing their terms, but have both recently signed new deals to continue with the series. Speaking to TV Guide, Meloni said of the negotiations: "There were a few quality-of-life issues as well. Meaning work hours, that stuff. "Aside from that, when you're dealing with the types of money - and I don't mean just mine and Mariska’s contracts - I mean the economic climate, everyone trying to squeeze out as much money as they can both from the product and us as performers that you have to tread carefully because it's a very uncertain environment out there. It was the dance that needed to be danced. It was a long waltz." He added that the process angered some fans of the show. "On the whole, 90% were with us and then you had the 10% [that] weren't. They were really upset that all this was maybe threatening the continuation of the show." NBC recently announced that the new season of Law & Order: SVU will premiere on Wednesday, September 23.

'SVU' exclusive: Stephanie March is staying! - Featured

Stephanie March One down, two to go. With so much attention focused on the Christopher Meloni and Mariska Hargitay talks, we nearly forgot about the up-in-the-air fate of another Law & Order: SVU vet: Stephanie March. I say nearly because the actress has quietly inked a new contract to continue playing ADA Alex Cabot. How lengthy is her commitment? Read on and find out... NBC declined comment, but an SVU insider says March's pact calls for her to appear in a minimum of 10 episodes next season. The show is expected to introduce one or possibly two new characters to fill the ADA void when Cabot isn't around. March, who left SVU's full-time ranks in 2004, returned for a 10-episode run last spring. Her first episode back was one of the show's most-watched of the season. Ecstatic that March is sticking around? Then proceed to the comments section, silly! Source
