Geniuses, lower your voices: Mariska Hargitay is stealing all of your choices. The SVU star is as big of a fan of Hamilton as Taylor Swift is of her, and so, EW reports, she'll be the one who tells the story of the Hamilton: The Revolution audiobook, out next month. She'll handle the prose passages while Lin-Manuel Miranda does the verse — one more link in the long history between Hamilton and SVU. "Mariska, in addition to being the no. 1 fan of the show, represents, to me, much of what Hamilton is about," Miranda says in a statement: "tough, smart, and New York." In other words: Just like her city, she's strong, savvy, and gritty, and (with the possibility of a spoken-word Grammy) she is not throwing away her EGOT.
