Looks like a little more "T" will be on the set of Law & Order: SVU.
E!'s Ice Loves Coco star Ice-T has announced that he will be reprising his big, scripted-TV role as Detective Fin Tutuola on the long-running NBC procedural. Maybe this news will help dull the pain from the recent departure of the show's front man, Christopher Meloni.
But what did Ice-T reveal about possible replacement castmembers? Here's what we can tell you:
Mariska Hargitay will also be returning for the 13th season, but prepare to see a little less of Detective Olivia Benson. Word has it that by midseason Benson will be promoted to supervisor, leaving her detective slot open for a new female lead. Speculation has led many to believe that Jennifer Love Hewitt, who garnered stunning reviews for her guest spot on the show last season, will replace Benson but don't jump to conclusions just yet.
"At this moment no one else is locked as new members of the show..." Ice-T tweeted, putting a halt to the recent bloom of speculation.
So are you ready for some more Ice-T on SVU this fall? How do you think the writers will write off Detective Stabler? And are you ready for the premiere of Ice-T's new show Ice Loves Coco this Sunday on E!?
