Harry Connick Jr. will have a multi-episode, guest-starring turn on NBC’s procedural drama Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, it was announced at NBC’s TCA Day. Connick & Mariska Hargitay were introduced by video — check it out!
Connick will guest-star as Executive ADA David Haden, a dedicated, straight-shooting prosecutor who is assigned a case with Detective Benson (Mariska Hargitay). Although Benson is at first wary of Haden, they are both surprised to find they work well together. As the case develops, so does their relationship.
“This is a home run on so many levels,” Hargitay says. “The show is very fortunate to have Harry’s extraordinary talent, and I’m lucky because I get to work with my friend. I think Olivia couldn’t have asked for a better companion to take her through a new stage in her life and career.”
Connick’s first episode will air January 18.
Law & Order: Special Victims Unit airs Wednesdays at 10 p.m. on NBC.
