Law & Order: Svu Boss Warren Leight on Stabler Regrets, Benson Changes and a Final Word to Fans

26 May 2016 6:37 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Leight's out on Law & Order: Svu. Warren Leight that is. The Tony-winning writer and executive producer ended his tenure on the NBC police drama with the season 17 finale "Heartfelt Passages." A particularly fitting name for his final episode that featured the elite squad of detectives losing one of their own—a first in 17 seasons. Under Leight, Law & Order: Svu underwent a shift, partially at of necessity as Christopher Meloni exited between seasons 12 and Leight's first, season 13. The series started focusing more on Mariska Hargitay's Olivia Benson, her rise to power in the squad room and for the first time in more than a decade, the character had a personal life that wasn't depicted as »

Why Mariska Hargitay Is More Committed to Law & Order: Svu Than Ever Before

25 May 2016 7:30 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Mariska Hargitay's Olivia Benson plays several different roles for many different people. She's the boss of the Special Victims Unit, she's mom to Noah, girlfriend to Tucker (yeah, get used to it), and hero to all (including viewers) on Law & Order: Svu. She's taken her licks and gotten back up time after time, so season 17, which Hargitay called a "huge," year for Benson, is no different. "For me it's been a balancing act. Balancing being the boss, balancing being reintegrated after the 'Townhouse Incident' and balancing motherhood and priorities—keeping all the balls in the air is what's so hard. Having Noah and feeling like I have so many kids," she told E! »

13 Times Leads Left Their TV Roles Before the Show Ended After six seasons as the first-billed lead on “The Vampire Diaries,” Nina Dobrev announced she would be leaving — though the show would go on to a seventh season. “Tvd” has since been renewed for a Season 8. Christopher Meloni made an abrupt exit after the Season 12 finale of “Law & Order: Svu,” and the show seemed doomed without one half of the Stabler-Benson partnership at its heart, but with Mariska Hargitay still on board, the crime drama has just been renewed for a Season 18. “Sleepy Hollow” shocked fans when »

8 April 2016 1:18 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Mariska Hargitay is an A-list member of Taylor Swift's squad (only she and Ellen Pompeo have cats named in their honor), but that doesn't prevent her from getting starstruck. In fact, the Law & Order: Special Victims Unit star was moved to tears when she met Misty Copeland, Principal Dancer with American Ballet Theatre, at Variety's Power of Women New York event, which was sponsored by Lifetime. E! News caught Mariska's emotional meeting with Misty on camera, and when we discovered the sweet reason behind her tears, we wanted to name our next pet after Olivia Benson, too. "My daughter's four and wants to be a ballerina," she said of little Amaya as she held Misty's hands. "God »

Mariska Hargitay to Receive Karma Award at Power of Women NY

5 April 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

It’s imperative to envision a world where women can feel safe, says Mariska Hargitay. Inspired by her role on NBC’s hit “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit,” she created the Joyful Heart Foundation to heal, educate and empower survivors of sexual assault, domestic violence and child abuse. For her work creating the foundation, Hargitay is receiving the Karma Award from the Karma Automotive company at Variety’s Power of Women New York luncheon on April 8 at Cipriani Midtown. Karma Automotive will make a donation to Joyful Heart.

“The fact that there’s this underlying belief that a world without sexual assault and domestic violence is not a realistic goal is one of the major obstacles to getting there,” Hargitay says. “It’s our responsibility to apply our best thinking to these issues that have been underfunded, under-researched, and under-regarded for so long,” adds the mom of three, whose “No »

‘Ghoulies 1&2′ Blu-ray Review (101 Films)

5 April 2016 4:28 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Ghoulies

Stars: Peter Liapis, Lisa Pelikan, Michael Des Barres, Jack Nance, Mariska Hargitay, Scott Thomson, Ralph Seymour | Written by Luca Bercovici, Jefery Levy | Directed by Luca Bercovici

Ghoulies 2

Stars: Damon Martin, Royal Dano, Phil Fondacaro, J. Downing, Kerry Remsen, Donnie Jeffcoat, Dale Wyatt | Written by Charlie Dolan, Dennis Paoli, Luca Bercovici | Directed by Albert Band

For my film-loving friends and I, Ghoulies and its immediate sequel were almost rites of passage growing up – I distinctly remember renting them from not only the local video shop but also that strange guy that used to park on the street corner renting tapes out of his boot (or, if he was more successful, the back of a transit van). You know the one, he’d have the craziest VHS tapes you’d ever seen – Class of Nuke Em High, Black Roses, The Toxic Avenger, Ghoulies… all films that sold themselves on artwork alone. »

Why Christopher Meloni Didn't Want Benson and Stabler to End Up Together on 'Law & Order: Svu'

31 March 2016 3:01 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Christopher Meloni remains very proud of his role on Law & Order: Svu as Detective Elliot Stabler, but he disagrees with the show's diehard fans on one fundamental thing: Stabler and Mariska Hargitay's Olivia Benson definitely did not belong together, he says.  Meloni told James Lipton on Thursday's episode of Inside the Actors Studio that while fans often pulled for a relationship to happen between their characters, the show's cast and crew "always knew it would have been the death knell of that relationship."  We "needed to keep that line taut but very clear," Meloni said.

31 March 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Christopher Meloni may have left Law & Order: Svu years ago, but the bond he has with his former TV partner Mariska Hargitay runs deep still to this day. In a bonus clip from his interview with James Lipton on Inside the Actors Studio, Meloni opens up about working with Hargitay for those 12 seasons of Svu and reveals why the writers never "went there" with Detectives Stabler and Benson. "She was always ready for anything new…There was always an unspoken shorthand to what we were doing. That makes it just so much easier, and off camera as well," Meloni said. "There's a lot to be said for that when you're working with someone for 16 hours a day, you better get along when the cameras »
