    At least Andre Braugher's character is returning in the same episode.

    Is Andre Braugher playing Frank Pembleton or a different character?

    I was hoping you were going to say Christopher Meloni.

    He's playing Bayard Ellis, a defense attorney who's a recurring guest character.

    As for Chris Meloni: He left on good terms, and has always said he'd love to do a guest appearance as Stabler if asked. But it's not being planned right now.

    That's an interesting name. I just noticed that the first three letters of Bayard and the last three letters of Ellis spell out Baylis. When Andre Braugher was on Homicide, his partner's last name was Bayliss. Just a silly observation. Does Munch give him funny looks?

    ^ When Ellis walked into the SVU squad room once, he looked at Munch and said "Have we met?" :lol:

    ^that's funny. I'll have to check those episodes out. I stopped watching SVU after Meloni left because I didn't really like the new characters.

    Oh no, has L&O: SVU finally jumped the shark?

    I think casting Mike Tyson - a convicted rapist - on a show like SVU is a terrible idea.

    Any more terrible than a rapper with a song titled "Cop Killer" having a contract role as one of the cops?

    ^ That's completely different. Music is just music, after all.

    Side note: Chris Meloni fans might want to check out the new movie 42 that's coming out in a few months. CM plays Leo Durocher.

    If he comes to the show it will go down hill from there.

    I'll let you know when I get there.
    Does it matter who comes to L&O:SVU? -Don't they need a corpse in every episode?


    :p

    ^ apparently Tyson's character will be central to the episode.

    Look, I know he served his time and all that, but that doesn't mean SVU has to give him any more screen time than he already has got. And I wonder how Mariska Hargitay can stomach this, given all the work she's done for charity...
