$VU $tars $ign New, Big-bucks Deals

Although NBC is mum on the financial particulars, Variety reports that Mariska Hargitay and Christopher Meloni have signed on for two more years of Law & Order: SVU, inking deals that provide them each with $6.5 million-plus salaries, and in Hargitay's case, makes her (at the very least) one of network television's highest-paid actresses. As L&O creator Dick Wolf says he is happy "that Chris and Mariska have decided to stay with a show that they’ve made an indelible stamp upon," Hargitay's 7-month-old son, August, issued his own statement saying he is happy to now use $100 bills for baby wipes.
