On Sunday, August 30th, USA will air a special ‘Law & Order: Special Victims Unit’ “NO MORE Excuses” marathon featuring stars of the Network’s original hit series lending their support for the effort to end domestic violence and sexual assault. The marathon, in partnership with Mariska Hargitay’s Joyful Heart Foundation and the NO MORE campaign, will include custom wraps and PSAs with important information and resources during each episode from 12pm/11c to 11pm/10c.
USA talent participating in the effort includes SUITS’ stars Gina Torres, Patrick J. Adams and Sarah Rafferty, GRACELAND stars Aaron Tveit and Daniel Sunjata, ROYAL PAINS star Mark Feuerstein, MR. ROBOT star Rami Malek, and WWE Superstar John Cena. The marathon will also include original wraps with Mariska Hargitay and other current and former SVU cast members such as Raul Esparza, Kelli Giddish, Chris Meloni, Danny Pino, Peter Scanavino and Ice-T. The episodes in the marathon include a plethora of guest stars including: Gloria Reuben, Maria Bello, Peter Gallagher, Jason Beghe, Jesse McCarthy, Kathy Griffin and Sophia Bush.
“It’s been a great privilege being a leading partner in NO MORE from the beginning,” said Mariska Hargitay, founder of the Joyful Heart Foundation. “Society continues to misplace shame and blame on survivors-both women and men. That has to end. By confronting the myths and excuses we rely on to avoid ending domestic violence and sexual assault, NO MORE fills me with confidence and renewed determination that we will put an end to the violence.”
Just as one person left Detective Rollins’ life on Law & Order: SVU, another one is coming back in.
The new season will feature the return of Rollins’ sister (Lindsay Pulsipher) — but she’s bringing a new face with her. “We’ll see her sister and meet her mother,” executive producer Warren Leight tells TVGuide.com. “Even if their intent is to be supportive, and I’m not even sure it is, her family showing up is not a great thing for her — nothing good comes from seeing her sister or her mother.”
As to why they’re coming around, could Rollins be expecting a baby just like Kelli Giddish is in real life? “By the end of the premiere you’ll know part of the answer to that question,” Leight teases.
Step aside, Ice-T! You’re not the only Law and Order: SVU star with big family news to share!
E! News can confirm actress Kelli Giddish married Lawrence Faulborn in a beach wedding ceremony earlier this summer.
According to Paradise Beach Weddings, the couple exchanged vows steps away from the ocean blue water in New Smyrna Beach, Fla. Family and friends witnessed the bride say “I Do” in a stunning white dress with a floral crown.
Perhaps Giddish’s spring shoot with Sophisticated Weddings where she walked the streets of New York City in a wedding gown provided some serious marriage fever.
While the wedding news could provide enough joy for loyal fans, there’s even more happy news to share.
A rep for NBC confirmed to E! News that Giddish is also pregnant and expecting her first child with Faulborn.
The announcement comes just a few short hours after co-star Ice-T announced he was expecting his first child with wife Coco.
“@FINALLEVEL and @cocosworld having a baby. @TheKelliGiddish and L Faulborn having a baby,” showrunner Warren Leight joked on Twitter. “#SVU — most fertile show on Earth. Congrats all!!”
