TVLine Items: Walking Dead Vet's SVU Gig, Steve Carell's TV Return, TVD's New Witch and More

Law & Order: SVU Season 14 Spoilers Law & Order: SVU has landed a Walking Dead fave for an upcoming, ripped-from-the-headlines installment.

Lauren Cohan will guest-star on the NBC procedural this March in an episode based loosely on onetime Senate nominee Todd Akin’s controversial 2012 remarks that pregnancies rarely result from “legitimate rape.”

    It must have killed you to write the words, “Ke$ha Docu-Series,” Megan. I know it killed me to read it.

    I haven’t watched the Vampire Diaries in a while, but have there been any non-black witches on that show yet besides the first witch/mommy Original?

    • Rrrrrr says:

      Not really. There was a white guy witch towards the end of season 2, but he was a heat star with few, if any, lines. I remember him because I was shocked that he was white, lol. Then the witch that created The Originals, Klaus’ mom, was white. She was only in a handful of episodes. Recently there was another white witch on, but she was only a ghost. And apparently the first witch Katsia was the original doppelgänger, which means she would be white. And I know way too much about this show.

      • shuayb says:

        You are right with most things but Ketsia is not the original witch- she’s just a witch who created Silas the first immortal. Katya is the original person who Katherine and Elena and many others look like her. And that’s who Esther used to do the ritual.

    steve carell seems to be a douche bag, why not give all of his fans a great ending? NOOPE THAT’S NOT HOW STEVE ROLLS.. –DOUCHE–

  4. Csalzy says:

    we’ve already said goodbye to Michael Scott. the Office finale needs to stand alone. the ensemble cast has done a great job these last 2 seasons and deserve a proper send off!

  5. Em says:

    Yay for Lauren Cohan! She seems to be popping up on all of my favorite shows: Bela on Supernatural, Rose on The Vampire Diaries, Vivian Volkoff on Chuck, and of course Maggie on The Walking Dead.

  6. Trent says:

    So, rather than return for the finale of the series that kick started his career, he goes onto a reality series that was only taught history before filming an episode? C’mon Steve.

  7. mia says:

    I hate myself for looking forward to Kesha’s show. I kinda really love her hahahah

  8. Danielle H. says:

    So Bonnie lives then..

  9. Ana says:

    When is NBC going to realize that their not to subtle political activism is not gaining them any fans? I would love to see Lauren in something other than TWD, but I’m not watching this.

  10. Jaime says:

    When bad shows happen to good people. This would be Lauren going to SVU. Stay awayyyyyyy!!
