Law & Order: SVU Collars Shohreh Aghdashloo

Emmy winner Shohreh Aghdashloo is taking that hypnotic husky voice of hers over to Law & Order: SVU for an episode. The 24 alum will play Sunny Qadar, a tough-but-fair investigator in the Brooklyn DA’s office.

According to an SVU source, Aghdashloo met series star Mariska Hargitay at last year’s Emmys and hit it off immediately. Showrunner Neal Baer, in turn, asked her to do the show. Quick aside: If generating sparks with MHar at the Emmys is the litmus test for landing an SVU guest spot methinks my phone should’ve been ringing off the hook a long time ago. But I digress…

Aghdashloo’s episode is slated to air in January.
