SVU Gets Connick

It had to be you, Harry! Let's hope he
has better luck wooing Det. Olivia
Benson than his creepy predecessors!
I'll be honest. After the first two episodes, I have not been watching SVU, I think that's about to change. Singer/Actor Harry Connick Jr.  will be slipping into the revolving door role of district attorney on Law & Order: SVU. Not only that but he'll also be doing double-duty as a love interest for Mariska Hargitay's Detective Olivia Benson.

He'll play Executive Assistant District Attorney David Haden on multiple episodes. As a huge Connick fan (music and acting), I'm in. It will also be interesting to see how the relationship plays out. I don't think she's ever had a relationship that didn't end badly. One guy was a reporter who sold her out for a story. Another would be suitor ended up being a pedophile. Here's hoping Harry has a more positive outcome.

Ironically, he'll be playing an Executive Assistant District Attorney. His dad, Harry Connick Sr., served as the District Attorney in New Orleans from 1973 to 2003.
