According to Dick Wolf, four actors are in the running to replace Chris Meloni.

Danny Pino from "Cold Case," Kevin Alejandro from "Southland," David Conrad from "The Ghost Whisperer" and Michael Raymond-James from "Terriers" are all the Wolf's screen test list.

The only actor of those four I'm familiar with is Kevin Alejandro from "Southland." If the new guy is going to partner with Benson, though, my choice is David Conrad (he's the closest to her in age).

Your thoughts, everyone?

I haven't watched SVU in a while, but this still upsets me. :( Stableeeer...!
Pretty sure, him and the character dynamics he had were some of the main reasons I watched it in the first place.

I had no idea Chris Meloni was leaving. A part of me thinks some fresh blood would be good, but I still think I'll miss him. Though I won't miss all the B.S. with Stabler's kids.

I used to watch "Cold Case." Danny Pino's okay, but I suppose we'll have to see how he works with the rest of the cast.

So, is he really leaving, then? Have you read an official announcement from NBC? Because all those 'Chris is leaving' news articles surfaced again a few weeks ago, but they were exactly the same quotes as articles from the year before, and unless NBC have officially announced it, I don't know if I believe it.

This is going to turn out to be just how The X-Files died. Replace one, bring in Jennifer Love-Hewitt, replace the other...
