PAULA PATTON (‘PRECIOUS’) JOINS ‘LAW & ORDER: SPECIAL VICTIMS UNIT’ FOR MULTI-EPISODE STINT AS NEW ADA

Actress Paula Patton (“Precious“) will be joining the cast of “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” for a multi-episode stint as Assistant District Attorney Mikka Von, it was announced today by Creator and Executive Producer Dick Wolf.

Patton, who was nominated for multiple honors including the SAG Award (ensemble), NAACP Image Award (Supporting Actress) and the Critics Choice Award (ensemble) for her role as Ms. Blu Rain in the Oscar winning film “Precious,” will play a charming and savvy ADA who works with the Special Victims Unit on the Wolf Films/Universal Media Studios series, entering its 12th season on NBC.

Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” premieres September 22 in a new time period, Wednesdays at 9:00 p.m. (ET/PT) on NBC.

“When I saw Paula Patton give that terrific performance in the multi-Oscar nominated Precious, I knew she’d be perfect for SVU’s new Assistant District Attorney — she’s funny, warm and witty with a penchant for justice. And it happened. She’s starting in episode five. How cool is that?” executive producer Neal Baer said. […]

Now I don’t know about anyone else but I’m glad Paula Patton is joining the cast of SVU. Now I saw her in Precious and her acting there was phenomenal! As for SVU. Neal Baer and his crew of writers need to make sure not to make her character another Jo Marlowe (portrayed by Sharon Stone); some things you just don’t do!

On a CI front, rumors are saying that CI (and In Plain Sight) might not make it to renewals this time. I hope Law & Order: Criminal Intent DOES get canceled, especially if we can expect Walon Green to continue being showrunner. In all honesty CI’s season finale (“Three-In-One”) was a good series finale; it ended on a high note like when NBC canceled Law & Order after the episode “Rubber Room” (which also ended on a high note, rumors say AMC and Wolf are in ‘talks’). 

Personally In Plain Sight left me in a cliffhanger with the main character’s love life, Mary Shannon (portrayed by Mary McCormack); I’d actually like for it to come back for another season despite that some of the fans think John McNarama should step aside and let David Maples go back to being showrunner.

Again Law & Order: Special Victims Unit is set to have two back-to-back episodes on September 22, 2010 at 9:00PM/E and 10:00PM/E on NBC. And Law & Order: Los Angeles (whose filming has been pushed to August 2) is set to premiere the following week September 29, 2010 at 10:00PM/E following a new SVU on NBC.

On my front; I will still kick off Law & Order: Criminal Intent fanfiction on Tuesday September 21, 2010 at 8:00PM/E at http://www.fanfiction.net/u/1808736/
