Law Order SVU Philip Winchester Cast Season 19 Chicago Justice

Law & Order SVU: Philip Winchester to Bring Chicago Justice Role to NY

Philip Winchester will lay down some Chicago Justice to Manhattan later this year, when his character from that cancelled NBC procedural winds up on another: Law & Order: SVU

Per our sister site Deadline, Winchester will recur on SVU as Peter Stone, the role he originated on Chicago P.D. and then played on its legal-themed spinoff. Stone’s appearance in the SVU-verse makes sense: He’s the son of Benjamin Stone, the ADA on the original Law & Order. Peter will be an ADA in the Big Apple like his dad.

Winchester is the second Justice character to continue to live on another Dick Wolf-produced show. Jon Seda, who originated the character of Antonio Dawson on P.D., returned to that drama as a series regular after Justice‘s cancellation. Winchester is expected to make his SVU debut at midseason.

How do you feel about Stone coming to mix it up with Benson, Barba & Co.? Hit the comments and let us know!

    I can’t wait!! I loved Chicago Justice!!

  2. Natalie says:

    Barba is my fave.

  3. Max says:

    Thumbs up. He was a good actor wasted in a routine show. There was nothing that made Chicago Justice special other than the locale.

  4. Samuel says:

    Well some good news. What about Monica Barbaro’s character too?

  5. kathy finnegan says:

    I’ve loved this man since he played Robinson Crusoe years ago in a series. He was fantastic in Strikeback and am so happy he’s on SVU.

    • Fido says:

      I remember Strike Back – pew pew…. pew pew… [saves hostages]… pew pew pew… [has some nookie], pew pew [saves a kitten] pew pew… goes home to sleep.

  6. Tori Cooper says:

    How’s about get rid of Barba. That’d make it better.

  7. T.W.S.S. says:

    1. Will this impact Barba’s role on the show?
    2. Congrats to Stone and Dawson, but can Laura Nagel get a job please?

  8. Ice King says:

    Great call.

  9. The Rookie says:

    I want to see Alex Eames back. Olivia needs a friend and who better than L&O Universe Queen of Snark.

  10. piepeloe says:

    Didn’t watch the other show, but I’m always willing to give new characters a chance. I just hope this doesn’t mean Barba is leaving.

  11. Lexi says:

    Hopefully his means Barba is going to get kicked out the door! This new dude is the only acceptable person other than Alex Cabot. *crosses fingers and gives sign of the cross*

  12. Mer says:

    We better not lose Barba.

  13. Lisa says:

    Now this would give me a reason to watch SVU again. I like him.

  14. Rita says:

    Love it!!

  15. Debbie says:

    Good I glad he is moving to New York city

  16. dee says:

    I am so glad that Philip Winchester will be reprising his role on SVU, I love his character. I liked Chicago Justice, I was really bummed when it was cancelled. Cool casting!

  17. Kim m says:

    Awesome, Chicago justice should never been cancelled

  18. Dallas says:

    Didn’t like him on Justice so doubt I’ll like him on SVU. Hope Barba stays.

  19. Fido says:

    Will start watching SVU to check him out. SVU is the rapist of the week show, right ?!

  20. SUSAN LEE says:

    I can hardly wait!….Good choice!!!!!

  21. Jbj says:

    Seda originated Dawson on Chicago Fire, seasons before PD…I’m a bit shocked that I’m the first to note this.

  22. Cobra says:

    Have Ben Stone make an appearance!

  23. RedReddington says:

    It better not cut into Barba’s already too little screen time. Not really happy about this.

  24. Imagecrafters says:

    Loved PW in Strike Back, Players, and Chicago Justice. Liked L&O but not SVU. Wish he was in another show.

  25. winchester fan says:

    I actually haven’t watch SVU, but Mr. Winchester is worth watching no matter what media he does.
    I’ll definitely watch it now.

  26. I really like Philip and hope this works. Justice had no character development for him. Please fix that.

  27. jj says:

    SVU is my least favorite of all L&W because I can’t stand Christopher Meloni. And I just notice he is on the cast credit of S19E2. So no thanks.

    • Kathy says:

      If this is true, the entire SVU fandom will go bug-nuts insane. People have been screaming for Stabler’s return since Meloni’s botched contract negotiations.

  28. mrwynn says:

    He’s great. Loved him in Strike Back & The Player. Although he’s awesome as an action star, he’s got real acting talent as well. I stopped watching L&O, but I’ll start now that he’s on it. Kudos to Wolf for keeping such a talented actor!

  29. herman1959 says:

    Great, I really liked him in Chicago. I haven’t really watched SVU in years, but I’ll look out for the episodes involving Stone.

  30. Kiwi3 says:

    Super excited because I absolutely love Philip Winchester! Yay!

  31. Kiwi3 says:

    Although I guess his character got his beautiful eyes, great cheekbones, sun kissed hair, and body of a Greek God from his mother!

  32. padraicjacob says:

    Barba isn’t in every episode, with there being a random ADA in some episodes. So maybe this is to take care of those eps. Wonder if it’s because Raul Esparza only committed to a certain number of eps per year

  33. Jay says:

    Glad he will be on SVU. I was hopping Chicago Justice would have been given a second chance, however, this s at least a step in the right direction.

  34. Rasha says:

    He was the worst part of “Chicago Justice.” Do not want.

  35. Bellastwin says:

    this actually explains why Antonio leaves his position at the DAs office. Congrats to Philip for keeping his role!
