Actor Danny Pino retired his role as Detective Scotty Valens on Cold Case, but he's back and ready to add some diversity to the primetime fall line-up on Law & Order: SVU. The 38-year-old will be replacing Chris Meloni's role for the 13th season premiere this September.
Why we love him:
- He has acting skills and Madonna's reference to prove it! Danny worked with the Material Girl on a London play titled "Up For Grabs."

The next time you see Christopher Meloni's character Elliot Stabler on Law & Order: SVU, he'll be Cuban. OK, not really. But Meloni's replacement on the thirteenth season of the hit NBC drama (premiering this fall) is a Cuban-American actor: Cold Case alum, Danny Pino. We caught up with Pino, 37, to get the scoop on his hot new role, and the hunky actor gave us tons of details about his audition, and explained why he doesn't feel he has to fill Meloni's shoes on the hit show.
