NBC cast Kelli Giddish (“Chase”) and Danny Pino (“Cold Case”) as two new detectives on its “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” (Wednesdays, 10-11 p.m. ET in the fall).
Executive producer/creator Dick Wolf commented, “I’m very pleased that we have two amazing actors joining the cast. I know this combination will give us the opportunity to explore the world of ‘SVU’ with new eyes.”
Giddish recently starred in the NBC drama “Chase” as U.S. Marshal Annie Frost. Giddish also starred in “Past Life” and made guest appearances on “The Good Wife,” “Life on Mars” and “Without a Trace.”
In 2007, Giddish played a supporting lead role in David Connolly’s independent feature “The Understudy.” Following her departure from “All My Children” later that year, she made guest appearances on "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" and “Law & Order: Criminal Intent,” had a recurring role on “Damages” and appeared in Boaz Yakin's feature film “Death in Love.”
Pino starred for seven seasons on “Cold Case” as Senior Detective Scotty Valens. He also has guest-starred on such series as “The Shield,” “Men, Women & Dogs,” and more recently, in “Burn Notice.” His television movies include “Lucy” (as Desi Arnaz) and “Point of Origin.”
NBC's "Law & Order" is the tale of the elite squad of detectives who investigate sexually based crimes. Emmy and Golden Globe Award-winning actress Mariska Hargitay returns to portray Detective Olivia Benson.
Created by Emmy Award-winning producer Dick Wolf, "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" is now entering its 13th season.
