Los Angeles is getting its own version of the Law & Order franchise this fall, but we also will get an episode of “Law & Order Special Victims Unit,” with star Mariska Hargitay shooting scenes in Los Angeles around the time of the Primetime Emmys!
The episode will center on Detective Benson (Hargitay) investigating a rape kit and needing to come to Los Angeles to do so. While in LA, she will likely have to deal with Detective Rex Winters, who will be played by Skeet Ulrich and is a regular character on Law & Order: Los Angeles.
Since taking the role of Detective Benson, Hargitay has become an outspoken advocate for victims’ rights, especially in cases of sexual assault. She also founded the Joyful Heart Foundation to empower survivors of sexual assault, domestic violence and child abuse.
So she’s gorgeous and caring. Also, she seems like she’d be the BEST to go to happy hour with.
