Question: There's a rumor that Marcia Gay Harden is replacing Mariska on Law & Order: SVU during her maternity leave. True?

Answer: False. Although Neal Baer insists that no final decision has been made about who'll be stepping in for Marish, a reliable source confirms that Gladiator's Connie Nielsen will fill the void for at least six episodes. In related news, you have to check out these SVU-themed Valentines. I especially heart the "YOU'RE EXTRA SPECIAL" one.
