Posted by admin with No Comments

Law & Order: Special Victims Unit is loading up on guest stars.

Today’s Hoda Kotb is set to appear as herself in an episode that includes Ron Rifkin (Alias), Brian D’Arcy James (Smash), Stevie Lynn Jones (Crisis), and Dana Wheeler-Nicholson (Friday Night Lights), EW has learned exclusively.

In the episode, titled “Producer’s Backend,” Rifkin reprises his role as Counselor Marvin Exley, who’s representing Tensley (Jones), a young Hollywood starlet in trouble with the law… again. Tensley’s downward spiral causes Benson and the SVU to think there’s a dark, underlying reason for her erratic behavior. James guest stars as a top-level producer, known for giving Tensley and a score of other famous teens their big break. Nicholson will play Tensley’s mom.

Law & Order: SVU returns Sept. 24 at 9 p.m. ET. The episode is slated to air in October.

Exclusive: USA to Air SVU Marathon Featuring New Video From Chris Meloni

Posted by admin with No Comments

USA will air a second Law & Order: SVU “No More Excuses” marathon this month, this time with the help of former star Christopher Meloni, TVGuide.com has learned exclusively.

Meloni, who played Det. Elliot Stabler for 12 seasons, will appear in a brand-new call to action spot set to air during the marathon, which kicks off Sunday, June 22 at 3/2c. The video is specifically targeted to encourage more men help stop domestic violence and sexual assault.

Mariska Hargitay and more of this season’s MVPs

“Engaging men is a crucial part of the movement to address and, one day, end sexual assault, domestic violence and child abuse,” SVU star Mariska Hargitay said in a statement. “I am so grateful to USA for their courage, vision and generosity in joining us to involve men in saying NO MORE. Being part of NO MORE from the beginning has been a great privilege. We must confront the myths and excuses that perpetuate violence and abuse. Society continues to misplace shame and blame on survivors — both women and men. That has to end.”

USA teamed with Hargitay’s Joyful Heart charitable foundation and the No More campaign for the first “No More Excuses” marathon two months ago. Similar to the first event, this 8-hour marathon will be hosted by Hargitay and her SVU co-stars Ice-T, Danny Pino and Kelli Giddish, in addition to Meloni.

Throughout the marathon, viewers will be encouraged to seek out additional information online, or to call national help hotlines to speak with counselors and advocates. More information on the No More campaign, which aims to end the social stigma surrounding domestic violence and sexual assault, can be found here.

Law & Order: SVU’s “No More Excuses” marathon starts Sunday at 3/2c on USA.
