Law & Order: SVU season 19 spoilers: Isaiah Thomas to appear


For anyone out there who loves some of the notable guest stars that have appeared on Law & Order: SVUover the years then you’ll love this: Isaiah Thomas is stopping by!
Yesterday, the newly-acquired Cleveland Cavaliers star confirmed that he is filming for the hit NBC show today; there’s no indication as to if he’s playing himself or a character, but this marks his scripted TV acting debut. (The only official credits to his name right now are a number of sports talk show appearances.) The former Boston Celtics guard remains a fan favorite there following the recent trade (how can he not be based on some of his performances?), and this gig should help him gain even more of a following all over the country.
Beyond just being a cool experience for him, we also love the fact that a notable professional athlete is making such a big statement in being a part of the show with such a clear mission statement: Helping those who are victims of domestic violence. We don’t have to get into any headlines with other athletes to state the importance of a man using this platform to raise awareness and support for victims, and this show is more than just an hour of scripted entertainment. It’s inspired a lot of people over the years and will continue to do so.
Thomas joins a rather storied list of notable names to appear on an SVU episode, and it’s one that includes such familiar faces as then-Vice President Joe Biden, Modern Family star Sarah Hyland, Elizabeth Banks, Bradley Cooper, tennis sensation Serena Williams, Martin Short, Carol Burnett, and Brad Garrett. Some of these people appeared on the show prior to being a household name, whereas others turned up as a means to lending their voice to a cause. Biden had done a great deal of work, for example, with series star Mariska Hargitay on various causes. His appearance came about as a result of that.
New episodes of Law & Order: SVU season 19 start airing on Wednesday, September 27 and know that CarterMatt is going to be bringing you reviews and previews all season long. Based on the timing of Thomas’ post here, odds are that he will appear at some point later this fall.

For some additional Law & Order: SVU season 19 news…

If you haven’t seen the first promo for the new season yet, be sure to check that out over at the link here! Everything that we’re seeing on it at the moment suggests that we’ve got a great episode ahead there with Ice-T’s character of Fin being forced to deal with a case that could have international ramifications. Beyond that episode, there are also some big stories for Carisi and Rollins coming up; as for Hargitay’s Benson, this upcoming season could be putting her through hell more so than any other in recent memory. For whatever reason, she just can’t catch a break.

EXCLUSIVE: ‘Law & Order: SVU’ Season 19 Premiere First Look!


Olivia Benson (Mariska Hargitay) and the elite squad of special detectives are back for a new season -- its 19th! -- of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, and ET has your first look at the premiere, which will take the action all the way to Cuba.
The new season kicks off on Wednesday, Sept. 27 with an international tug-of-war when Det. Odafin “Fin” Tutuola (Ice-T) chases a fugitive rapist from New York to Cuba, potentially derailing Assistant District Attorney Rafael Barba’s (Raúl Esparza) legal case. Meanwhile, Lt. Benson, who is still acting commander of the SVU, is faced with shocking allegations that leads to the return of an old friend.
The premiere, “Gone Fishin’,” will see the return of Dean Winters as Brian Cassidy, a former SVU detective who now works for NYPD’s Internal Affairs and was briefly romantically involved with Benson, as well as series regulars Kelli Giddish as Det. Amanda Rollins and Peter Scanavino as Det. Sonny Carisi.

The first hour also features guest appearances by Amy Smart as Karla Wyatt, former Nashville star Will Chase as Byron Marks, who leads Fin to Cuba, former House actor Peter Jacobson as Randy Dworkin and Cuban actress Mariela Garriga as Elana Marks.
While not too many details about the new season have been released, there will be some new faces both in the SVU and the courtroom. Brooke Shields has been cast in a recurring role that shakes things up for Benson.

“I'm excited to stir the SVU pot a bit,” Shields said in a statement to ET, later revealing to Newsday that her character is “pretty complicated and it’s gut wrenching. What’s so amazing about the show is that the characters are so rich and layered, and they’re just filtering me through it.”
Shields will make her first appearance on Oct. 11. Meanwhile, Philip Winchester will reprise his Chicago Justice role, Assistant State’s Attorney Peter Stone, when he joins the series full-time midseason and Annabeth Gish (The X-Files) will appear as a defense attorney in episode three. 
There have also been changes behind the scenes, with Michael Chernuchin taking over as showrunner. And in an interview with EW, he revealed that the new season will tackle the Charlottesville, Virginia, riots. “You can bet your bottom dollar that we’ll do that,” he said. “We don’t want to take a stand on any political point of view, but we like to present the issues. What I want is, at the end of a show, for half the people to stand up and cheer and the other half to throw their shoes at the TV. I want controversy.”

Other ripped-from-the-headline episodes this season will touch on passengers being dragged off commercial airplanes as well as catfishing and cyber-bullying in an episode that Chernuchin described to THR as “our answer to 13 Reasons Why.”
Law & Order: SVU premieres Wednesday, Sept. 27 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on NBC.

18 Inspiring Mariska Hargitay Quotes


If you’re unsure as to who Mariska Hargitay is, my heart hurts for you. To make things a little more clear, she is also known as Olivia Benson who is a detective on the hit TV series Law and Order: Special Victims Unit. Mariska is a badass on and off the screen. She has a wonderful heart and a body that matches it. Not only is she an actress, but she is the Founder and President of the Joyful Heart Foundation, which is an organization that helps victims of sexual assault and domestic violence. And to top it all off, she is a mother of three beautiful children. She was also featured in Taylor Swift's Bad Blood music video. Mariska inspires me every day to be joyful and thankful for the life that I have. I hope her quotes will inspire you as well.

1. “Being fearless means busting down those walls of fear and being who you are, not who someone else thinks you are. People like to put others in a box and tell them what they can and cannot do or who they can and cannot be. No one can tell you who you are and what you are made of, only you yourself know what you are made of, and only you yourself can do the work to become who you want to be.”

2. “No one can take away your pain, so don't let anyone take away your happiness.”

3. “It's a life's journey of finding ourselves, finding our power, and living for yourself, not for everyone else.”

4. “Your body is not who you are. I don't think women should label themselves based on the way they look. What about defining yourself by a different kind of measurement? What about your heart, your soul, your compassion, your generosity, your strength and your power? There are so many other things to focus on besides your waistline.”

5. “No one can tell you who you are and what you are made of, only you yourself know what you are made of, and only you yourself can do the work to become who you want to be.”

6. “By coming forward and sharing your story, you don't know the countless lives you change.”

7. “If I can play a little part in the world's healing, and making it a better place than when I came, then I just thank God for that chance.”
8. “Over half a million women are raped in this country every year, and only a fraction of them report it because they're too ashamed. It’s a really screwed up world, but it’s not your fault, and what happened to you, it doesn't make you the monster.”

9. “You've got to kick fear to the side, because the payoff is huge.”

10. “In life you have two choices. You can laugh or you can cry. You have to laugh, you have to.”

11. “Sometimes things in life happen that allow us to understand our priorities very clearly. Ultimately you can see those as gifts.”

12. “I am grateful that I didn't let fear get the best of me. It only holds you back from possibilities and greatness.”

13. “Healing takes time, and asking for help is a courageous step.”

14. “I think God runs the show. Completely. Life proves it every day: He runs the show.”

15. “There's so much that you can get mad about. Out of self-preservation, I focus on being grateful.”

16. “A guy at ABC told me to change my name and get a nose job. I said 'You get a nose job.'”

17. “I'm a size 8, and I feel proud of that, because it's healthy. I've never felt compelled to be a skinny actress.”

18. “But trust can take you a long way. And my faith takes me a long way. And I think that our pains, our vulnerabilities, and our insecurities can fuel us to be better. To try harder. To dig deeper.”
