New gig.

Kelli Giddish (ex-Di) has just been added as a series regular to “Law & Order: SVU.” According to TVLine, she will play a cop, who will help fill the gap when series lead Mariska Hargitay (Olivia Benson) begins to cutback her airtime midseason. The long running crime show has also added Danny Pino to the cast, since Chris Meloni (Elliot Stabler) won’t be returning for the upcoming season.

Giddish has also recently appeared on “The Good Wife,” “Chase,” and “Past Life.” “Law & Order: SVU” airs on Wednesdays at 10.00 EST PM on NBC.
