Hugh Dancy To Investigate Killers, Try Not To Fall In Love With Them, In Law & Order Revival

How is Hugh Dancy supposed to solve homicides without his murder husband? According to Deadline, Dancy -- who played FBI consultant Will Graham in the NBC series "Hannibal," opposite Mads Mikkelsen's titular cannibal -- has been tapped to star in the "Law & Order" revival, which is also happening at NBC. Here's hoping that his character in the long-running procedural is better at catching criminals than catching feelings for them.It's been a decade since "Law & Order" went off the air, ending wi...

Detective Nick Amaro Is Returning To Law & Order: SVU For The 500th Episode

Yes, they were formulaic and unsubtle and the definition of "You know exactly what you're getting" progra...
