Winter TV Preview: Law & Order: SVU

Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, NBC
Returned Wednesday, January 2 at 9/8c

Replacing Chris Meloni on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit may have seemed like an impossible task, especially since he was a central part of the show. But since his arrival as Detective Nick Amaro on NBC’s long-running legal drama, Danny Pino has made it look as easy as 1-2-3. The 38-year-old Cuban-American actor has earned nothing but praise for his work on SVU, including an ALMA Award nomination this year for Outstanding Actor in a Drama Television Series.
