Three-time Grammy Award winner, two-time Emmy Award winner and Tony Award nominee Harry Connick Jr. will have a multi-episode, guest-starring turn on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, beginning Wednesday, January 18th, 10 pm eastern.
will guest-star as Executive ADA David Haden, a dedicated,
straight-shooting prosecutor who is assigned a case with Detective
Benson (Mariska Hargitay). Although Benson is at first wary of Haden,
they are both surprised to find they work well together. As the case
develops, so does their relationship.
“This is a home run on so many levels,” said
Hargitay. “The show is very fortunate to have Harry's extraordinary
talent, and I'm lucky because I get to work with my friend. I think
Olivia couldn't have asked for a better companion to take her through a
new stage in her life and career.”
A star in music, theater,
film and television, Connick recently won his second Emmy for musical
direction of his live concert television special, “Harry Connick Jr. in
Concert on Broadway.” He currently is starring on Broadway in the
musical “On a Clear Day You Can See Forever.”
