Lost’s Desmond Gets Another Life on SVU


Stabler and Benson will be joined by a familiar face this fall, as Henry Ian Cusick — better known as Lost’s Desmond — has signed on for at least two episodes of Law & Order: SVU. Cusick will be playing a graphic artist named Erik Weber who may engage in some “flirtation” with Mariska Hargitay’s Detective Benson. Turning Desmond into a hip artist type and transplanting him to New York can be (begrudgingly) accepted, but messing with Des and Penny? That just ain't gonna fly. [TV Guide]
