New Law And Order Svu Season 17 Nick Amaro Confirmed To Be Gone Forever

21 May 2015 12:56 PM, PDT | OnTheFlix | See recent OnTheFlix news »

According to a recent report from TV Line, it's definitely confirmed to be very true. We won't be seeing actor, Danny Pino aka Nick Amaro, in action anymore as he's decided to exit the "Law And Order: Svu" show indefinitely. So, don't be looking for him in season 17. Showrunner ,Warren Leight, mentioned to TV Guide that it was probably about the right time for him to leave, saying: "It seemed to be, in a strange way, right for Amaro to start fresh somewhere else. It’s not to say any of us enjoys it, but it seems like that’s where the story was going and I think all of the actors felt like the exit was honored.” As previously reported, "Law And Order: Svu," was definitely early renewed for a brand new season 17. The official premiere date should be announced in a few weeks, so stay tuned for that. »

About Law & Order: Svu's Finale Conversation Regarding Benson and Stabler...

21 May 2015 10:46 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Law and Order: Svu ended its sixteenth season with a bang. Yes, there was a courtroom shootout, but the bang I'm talking about is Sgt. Olivia Benson's (Mariska Hargitay) conversation with Detective Nick Amaro (Danny Pino) about her former partner, Elliot Stabler (Christopher Meloni). Yes, Svu went there. And it's fine. In fact, it's good the writers did. This is the conversation that is stirring up all sorts of feelings in Svu fans: Amaro: "I know I wasn't what your old partner was for you." Benson: "No, you weren't. I grew more in my last four years with you than I did in the 12 years I was with him. You know, that relationship, whatever it was, didn't allow for »

Danny Pino Leaving Law and Order: Svu

21 May 2015 5:50 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Law and Order: Svu is no stranger to cast changes, but this time viewers got a proper goodbye from Danny Pino. E! News has confirmed Pino, who joined the show in season 13 alongside Kelli Giddish as new detectives replacing Christopher Meloni, left the series as a series regular as of the season 16 finale. His character, Nick Amaro, has had problems with the brass before and attempted to apply for the sergeant's exam, but was discouraged. After a shootout in the courtroom that saw him take out Johnny D. (Charles Halford), Benson's (Mariska Hargitay) latest tormentor, Amaro took a bullet to the liver and knee. Sensing he was going nowhere in New York, Amaro informed Benson he was planning to retire and head to »

Mariska Hargitay on Delivering Law and Order: Svu's "Brilliant" and Best Finale After 16 Seasons

19 May 2015 12:00 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Can Mariska Hargitay's Olivia Benson ever be happy on Law and Order: Svu? She's been pretty darn close this season while caring for little Noah, the foster child she's planning to adopt in the Law and Order: Svu season 16 finale. But this is Law and Order: Svu. Things never go as planned. Noah's birth father, Johnny Drake (Charles Halford), returns and tries to reclaim his parental rights in "Surrendering Noah." Yes, the same Johnny D. who was involved in a sex trafficking ring and is being charged with rape, kidnapping and assault. As if that weren't enough to stress out viewers, we know this: Not everybody makes it out of the finale alive. "Juicier than that? That's already insanely »

Dennis O’Neil: Cop Shows, Reality Blows

14 May 2015 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

I call them “cop shows” or, if I’m feeling a bit cutesy, “badge operas.” A screenwriting acquaintance says they’re “procedurals.” But never mind the label: by whatever name, they’re what constitutes most of the bread-and-butter television programming and you probably don’t have to go further than your nearest remote to find one.

There will be a pseudo family of protagonists – police, doctors, lawyers, feds, the occasional fire fighter or paramedic – and these people will be presented with a problem, usually one that involves injury done to an innocent party, and, using their skills and wit and such facilities as are provided to them, they will solve the problem. Usually, but not always, there is a happy ending appended to the story and once in a very great while, things end badly.

But don’t hold your breath waiting for that episode. Usually, by the rolling of the end credits, »

The Bruce Jenner Effect: Will More Lgbt Celebs Come Out of the Closet?

6 May 2015 11:00 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Orange Is the New Black star Samira Wiley hopes Bruce Jenner will inspire more Lgbt celebrities to come out. "I think people are so afraid to do it, rightfully so, because of history," Wiley, who is openly gay, told me while promoting her guest role on tonight's Law and Order: Special Victims Unit. "But I think people sometimes think we're still in that time. I find more and more when celebrities come out it's like, 'Oh, gosh, I didn't know that person was gay,' but as quickly as the next day it sort of becomes obsolete because that doesn't change who the person is. "I think more and more people are starting to realize that," she said. Even so, the 28-year-old »

The actress (aka Oitnb's Poussey) makes her debut on tonight's Law and Order: Special Victims Unit as Michelle, a woman who comes forward to recant her claims of rape and incest that sent her father to prison 17 years ago.

Wiley admits she couldn't stop taking photos when she was on the Svu set. "It was sort of surreal," she said. "It's such an iconic »

Ted 2 Reveals A Foul Mouthed New Trailer

27 April 2015 1:17 PM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Seth MacFarlane's filthy, talking teddy bear is back this Summer with Ted 2, and Universal have dropped a new red band trailer, which shows MacFarlane's signature pop culture infused humour is still strong the second time round (the Law and Order bit that kicks this off is pretty darn funny), and the rapport between Mark Wahlber and CGI co-star is better than ever. We all no MacFarlane has his fair share of detractors, but Ted was one of the better R rated comedies in the last few years, and hopefully the sequel will be more of the same. Released: June 26th (U.S.)/ July 10th (Irl/U.K.) Synopsis: Newlywed couple Ted and Tami-Lynn want to have a baby, but in order to qualify to be a parent, Ted will have to prove he's a person in a court of law. »

Recently, NBC released these 2, new sneak peek/spoiler clips (below) for their upcoming "Chicago Fire" episode 21 of season 3, and they offer up new looks at some pretty interesting stuff as Olivia Benson from Law And Order: Svu is spotted interjecting herself into a Chicago case, and more.

'Last Man's Mel Rodriguez's Career Boomerang is the Most Heartwarming Showbiz Story of the Year

24 April 2015 10:36 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

After a long, long build-up, TV’s Golden Age is having its Mel Rodriguez moment; within the past few months, the distinctively cuddly-sized actor has occupied critical roles in not one but three acclaimed series. First, he was seen as Patsy de le Cerda, the hapless head nurse on HBO’s hospital comedy, Getting On. Then he popped up again as the short con accomplice of young Saul Goodman on AMC’s Breaking Bad prequel, “Better Call Saul.”  And finally, he made a surprise entrance as Todd, the incarnation of the “Last Man on Earth”s nightmare. We caught up with him by phone as he took a break from “doody duties,” tending to his three month old daughter, Stella. Hitfix: Suddenly, all my favorite shows are centered around Mel Rodriguez.  How did this happen? I don’t know man, I really don’t. I’m the luckiest guy in the world. »

Recap: 'Saturday Night Live' – Taraji P. Henson and Mumford & Sons

11 April 2015 8:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

After a slow start to 2015 (anniversary special excluded), the last two weeks of “Saturday Night Live” have been a return to form. Both the Dwayne Johnson and Michael Keaton episodes were excellent, now the show has the chance to complete the trifecta with Taraji P. Henson as host. There’s bound to be at least one “Empire”-centric sketch tonight (probably involving musical guest Mumford & Sons, because why not), but personally? I’m hoping Taran Killam gets to bust out his amazing Brad Pitt impression opposite Henson in a parody of “The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button.” (Those banking on a “Person Of Interest" parody might be disappointed.) Still, there’s far more than parodies planned tonight, and as per usual, I’ll be covering them in liveblog form. Follow along starting at 11:30 pm Est, and leave your comments throughout the show as I grade each segment in real time. »

The CW’s ‘The Flash’/’Arrow’ spinoff casts Hawkgirl and Rip Hunter

30 March 2015 6:40 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

While Marvel comics have enjoyed success on the big screen over the years, their counterpart DC Comics has similarly found success on the small screen. The company’s most notable two shows have been Arrow and The Flash, both of which have enjoyed critical and commercial success on The CW. The world that the two shows have created led to the announcement that the channel was developing a new spinoff series that would be set in the same universe. Now the as-yet-untitled series has cast its first two original characters, as the creators have tapped Doctor Who‘s Arthur Darvill to play Rip Hunter and newcomer Ciara Renée to play Hawkgirl.

The duo will be joining a number of already-established characters and castmembers from both shows, as the series has already confirmed the casting of Brandon Routh, Wentworth Miller, Victor Garber, Dominic Purcell, and Caity Lotz in the spinoff. Of the group, »

Ciara Renee Joins Arrow-The Flash Spinoff As Hawkgirl

30 March 2015 2:50 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The CW’s crossover spinoff series involving key characters from The Flash and Arrow has added a brand new name to its leading roster. Set to join the highly-guarded series is Ciara Renee, whose TV debut came recently on Law and Order: Svu, in the role of Kendra Saunders Aka Hawkgirl.

A relative newcomer to the industry, Renee will be collaborating on the comic book team-up alongside a slew of returning stars from both individual shows. Brandon Routh (Arrow’s Ray Palmer/The Atom), Wentworth Miller (The Flash’s Leonard Snart/Captain Cold), Dominic Purcell (The Flash’s Mick Rory/Heat Wave), Victor Garber and Caity Lotz are all signed on for appearances. The latter – Caity Lotz – is one of the most intriguing additions to the cast as her character perished on Arrow, therefore making her return all the more mysterious.

Scandal Recap: Lena Dunham Goes Fifty Shades of Grey ... and Someone Gets Murdered

Lena Dunham's Scandal debut started out as a Fifty Shades of Grey situation that Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) needed to fix. And just when it looked like her character might be getting a Sex and the City ending, Huck (Guillermo Díaz) gave her a fate more suited for Law and Order: Svu. Thursday's episode was all about feminist issues: the line between owning your sexuality and being abused, the scrutiny a successful woman is subjected to versus a man. Though the Girls creator met a tragic end, our heroine rediscovered her erotic power with - surprise! - a »
