Bad news for Bensidy! It looks like Law & Order: SVU's Dean Winters is moving on.
Winters has been cast in a lead role for the anticipated Vince Gilligan-David Shore CBS drama Battle Creek, Deadline.com reports. The project, which was given a straight-to-series 13-episode order, is about the partnership of a detective (Winters) and an FBI agent with very different world views. Winters' character, Detective Russ Agnew, is described as a smart, tough, impatient, and pragmatic guy who gets results but with whom no one wants to partner.

Harry Connick Jr.
Who dat? Only the best thing to happen to American Idol in this post—Simon Cowell era.
Harry Connick Jr. may not be as instantly recognizable as his fellow Idol panelists Jennifer Lopez and Keith Urban, but in a world where too many reality-show judges act more like cheerleaders (yes, The Voice, this even applies to you), this New Orleans crooner and accomplished cutup has what I'd call (apologies to Cowell) the X — or expert — factor. He's exceptionally entertaining, extremely knowledgeable and expansively personable — even when his explosive opinions earn him the labels "Hatchet Harry" and "Harsh Harry" from the kinder, gentler Lopez and the occasional disgruntled contestant. But how can you not love an Idol judge who hates the word pitchy and refuses to be wowed by caterwauling vocal gymnastics?
Mariska Hargitay, Sophia Bush
Chicago P.D. is sending one of its own into the trenches of the Big Apple.
Sophia Bush, who plays Det. Erin Lindsay on the new NBC drama, is traveling to New York this coming week to shoot a scene for Law & Order: SVU with star Mariska Hargitay, executive producer Dick Wolf told reporters Sunday at the network's Television Critics Association winter previews.

Law & Order: SVU
[Warning: The following story reveals plot points from Wednesday's episode of Law & Order: SVU. Read at your own risk.]
Capt. Cragen (Dann Florek) didn't go out in the high style of Sgt. Munch's dressy (and boozy) retirement party back in October, but it was a fitting farewell for Law & Order's longest-running character.
Longtime Law & Order: SVU castmember Dann Florek had one stipulation when discussing his exit from the series with showrunner Warren Leight.
"Dann said, 'I don't like parties. I don't want a party,'" Leight tells TVGuide.com with a laugh. "But he does have a nice 'farewell to the troops' moment in this episode."
On Wednesday's episode (9/8c, NBC), Capt. Cragen will retire from the force after 15 seasons of SVU and three seasons on the original flagship series — all of which makes him the longest-running character in Law & Order history. "We set this thing in motion where, for the first time ever, he had a hint of a social life," Leight said in reference to...
It's been a rough season on Law & Order: SVU thus far for Det. Olivia Benson, who was kidnapped and tortured by a serial rapist in the haunting season premiere.
But behind the scenes, the series' longtime star Mariska Hargitay has only good things to say about the show's current season. "I think it's been...
Jon Seda, Jason Beghe
The original Law & Order seems like such a distant, and classy, memory these days. Dick Wolf's mini-empire within NBC now runs on a higher octane of lurid overkill. While Chicago Fire is a harmless enough, though largely forgettable, soap about telegenic first responders, its no-brainer (and brainless) spinoff, Chicago PD, is the most arrogantly conceived display of bare-knuckled hooey since the mercifully short-lived Ironside reboot, which polluted the same Wednesday 10/9c time period last fall.
Torture! Clones! Betrayal! Sexting! And just sex!
