"[It] has to be scary as hell for her," executive producer Warren Leight tells TVGuide.com of the relationship between Oliva (Mariska Hargitay) and Executive Assistant District Attorney David Haden (Harry Connick Jr.). "It's going to be interesting to see somebody in her mid-40s who has not really been in a long-term sexual relationship with someone for a very long time."

Hugh Laurie, Teri Hatcher
Earlier this week, Fox called time of death on House after eight seasons. Last summer, ABC announced that Desperate Housewives will move off of Wisteria Lane in May, also after eight seasons.
Both series have been huge commercial and critical successes, but even their diehard fans conceded that it was time for their beloved shows to end. No one should overstay their welcome, right? So we want to know: Which other long-running shows do you think should be put out to pasture?
Christopher Heyerdahl shouldn't work on his tan anytime soon.
The veteran actor who played ancient Volturi vampire Marcus in the Twilight movies will continue to fang it up on HBO's True Blood, Deadline reports. He'll play Dieter Braun, one of the five council members of the Vampire Authority, the highest-ranking governing authority over all vampires. Braun appears relatively mild-mannered, but revels in innovative torture techniques while interrogating prisoners.
Mariska Hargitay and Harry Connick Jr.
It's been a rough year for Det. Olivia Benson (Mariska Hargitay) on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.

Law & Order: SVU
More than 20 years after TV viewers first met Capt. Donald Cragen (Dann Florek) on Law & Order, the actor — not to mention fans — still doesn't quite have his character figured out. And he wouldn't have it any other way.
"I always like when the writers throw a curve ball or when I discover something new because playing a character like this, to me, is like hanging out with a really good friend," Florek tells TVGuide.com. "I would never presume that I know everything about him."
