SVU Nabs Paul Adelstein for Guest Gig

Scandal Paul Adelstein

Law & Order: SVU‘s latest bold-faced name? Private Practice alum Paul AdelsteinChung! Chung!

Adelstein will guest-star on the Feb. 4 episode of NBC’s long-running procedural, TVLine has confirmed.

The actor, currently starring opposite Lisa Edelstein in Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce on Bravo and recurring as Scandal spinmeister Leo, will play the uncle of an SVU rape victim. The episode is titled “Decaying Morality.”

The appearance actually will be a return to the series: Adelstein had a role in a Season 4 episode called “Mercy.”

Adelstein tweeted a photo of himself on set Tuesday…

… and promptly was answered by SVU show runner Warren Leight.

    Back to getting guest stars from the glory years. That’s what Warren Leight is good at and that’s it.

        I tried writing twice and it wouldn’t accept. The “Hi” was a test.
        Let’s see what Warren Leight does with FORGIVING ROLLINS”‘ Will there be a satisfying outcome, or will we be filled with anguish and angst? Will Amanda be able to say what is necessary to put Chief Patton away? Will he go free if She doesn’t? Will this episode be concluded tonight, or will this continue to drag out until episode 13? Since Kelli Giddish won’t be in episodes 11 and 12, Will non diehard SVU fans be willing to wait around until a conclusion in possibly episode 13? Will NBC overplay their hand in dragging this out? Everyone waited a month for this episode. How angry will some of us be if it doesn’t come to a conclusion for another 3 weeks? Since Everybody’s contract is up after this season, will NBC increase the payroll(they’ve been cutting it since the end of season 12) or will more people be leaving? Most people think that the only person that matters is Mariska Hargitay, but NBC would be very foolish to think that. I’ve read that at least 4 new NBC shows will be cancelled at the end of this season. Will NBC be stupid enough to screw around with what may be their last great show(in my opinion)? I can only say this for sure. if Kelli Giddish is gone, so am I.

    he will be the actual rapist/or has something to do with. You can’t cast Paul Adelstein just to be an uncle. Based on SVU history

    I hope he stays busy with Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce and guest star roles because I just find him annoying on Scandal.

    SVU is one of my favorite shows and I always love it when they guest stars too. Paul Adelstein is a good actor and I’m excited to see him on SVU once again. Everyone on SVU is awesome!

    I love him in Girlfriends Guide to Divorce. He is really good in it. Sometimes his character is easy to hate but he is doing an excelent job and i hope the show runs for a long time.
