Sneak Peek at Wentworth Miller's Guest Appearance (Or Is It?)

It's no secret that Wentworth Miller will be returning to television screens via a guest appearance on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit 's season premiere, which airs on September 23 on NBC. 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.

Wentworth Miller Returns to TV with 'SVU' - Featured

It's been a few weeks since Michael Scofield said his final farewells in the Prison Break series finale, and everyone wondering what Wentworth Miller would do next can rest, for now. Today TV Guide Magazine confirmed that Miller will be guest starring on the season premiere of Law and Order: Special Victims Unit, an episode that airs Wednesday, September 23 at 9pm on NBC. This news comes shortly after confirmation that stars Christopher Meloni and Mariska Hargitay will be staying with SVU despite early reports that the two might leave, If you're a Wentworth fan worried that he'll be playing a bad're probably right.

However, I've seen enough episodes of Law and Order: SVU to know it's never that simple. Source Here

'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

Random scooplets: 'SVU,' 'Greek' and 'Gilmore Girls' - Featured

Law & Order: SVU: There's still no deal in place for Mariska Hargitay and Chris Meloni to return next season, but I hear talks are "moving in the right direction." Greek : Kadeem Hardison ( A Different World ) has been cast as Ashleigh's father, Brian Howard, in a season 3 episode. Pops arrives on campus to spend Father-Daughter Weekend at the ZBZ sorority with Ash. Gilmore Girls : Nope, the show isn't returning. And I don't have an update on a possible movie. I do, however, have good news for fans of Gilmore guy Matt Czuchry. The pilot for his new CBS legal drama, The Good Wife , doesn't suck. Like, at all. (Watch a clip here .) Blind item: The coolest casting coup in recent memory was supposed to be finalized this week. Now I'm hearing it's not happening at all. The only hint I can give you is that it involves an actress we adore and a show we're obsessed with. And no, this is not a follow-up to my Summer Glau- Dollhouse story. Source

Mariska Hargitay Says "Stunt" Led to Partially Collapsed Lung

Law & Order: SVU star Mariska Hargitay says she suffered the partially collapsed lung that sidelined her from the show by taking a fall during filming. "I've been doing my own stunts on the show for 10 years," Hargitay told People. "I fell wrong, basically. I collapsed my lung doing a stunt." Hargitay, 45, underwent surgery in January and returned to work on SVU shortly thereafter. She then checked back into the hospital on March 3 for discomfort related to the injury. Hargitay's rep said she underwent "routine tests," and the star reported back to the set on March 23. Despite the scary couple of months, Hargitay said she's completely healthy now. "I'm 100 percent," she said. "I'm back to my old self." Source Here

Hargitay on SVU Fate: "I Have a Lot of Faith It's Going to Work Out"

While ongoing contract negotiations continue to leave the fate of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit 's two leads in question, Mariska Hargitay is optimistic. "I hope so," she told Access Hollywood, when asked if she'll be returning as the NBC cop drama's Olivia Benson. "We're all trying to work it out and I have a lot of faith it's going to work out." Hargitay's co-star, Christopher Meloni (Elliot Stabler), agreed: "It's a good vibe on the set," he said. "We all love each other. We're still happy with the stories that we're telling and you know, we'll see how it works out." In recent weeks, negotiations between the actors and the network have been described as aggressive. "The show's coming back - with or without them," Marc Graboff, co-chairman of NBC Entertainment, said during Monday's upfront presentation. Despite the uncertainty surrounding her future on SVU, at least Hargitay is again enjoying good health, after suffering pneumothorax (a collapsed lung) this winter. "I feel great," she said. "I've bounced back [after I] had a scary couple of months." Are you as optimistic as the SVU stars that they'll be back? Source Here
