Law & Order: SVU Recruits Brooke Shields for Major Arc

Law & Order: SVU Recruits Brooke Shields for Major Arc”

Law & Order: SVU is adding a very familiar face to the mix for season 19.

Though specific details on her role are being kept under wraps, Shields' character is expected to shake things up for Olivia Benson (Mariska Hargitay).

The two-time Golden Globe nominee noted in a statement, "I play a very different character from any I have ever played".

Shields is the second new addition to the Universal TV drama. She joins Philip Winchester, who will reprise his Chicago Justice role as lawyer Peter Stone at some point during the season.

As previously announced, also climbing aboard the procedural-that-just-won't-quit for this season is new showrunner Michael Chernuchin, who previous year helmed Dick Wolf's one-and-done "Chicago Justice". For Shields, the SVU part comes after her recurring stint on ABC'sThe Middle and more than a decade since her last appearance on NBC in Lipstick Jungle. SVU has previously hosted high-profile guest stars like the late Robin Williams, Sharon Stone, Alec Baldwin, Whoopi Goldberg and Carol Burnett.

Shields also will be seen this fall in indie feature drama Daisy Winters.
