Two-time Emmy winner Andre Braugher is in talks for a role on NBC’s "Law & Order: SVU," reports Deadline.com.
Braugher, who last month received his second consecutive Emmy nomination for his role on the now-canceled TNT comedy "Men of a Certain Age," is closing in on a recurring role on "SVU" as an attorney who may get close to Det. Olivia Benson, played by Mariska Hargitay. His character works for the underprivileged, the piece adds.
Braugher guest-starred in an episode of "Law & Order" 15 years ago, the story notes. He won an Emmy in 1998 for another NBC crime drama, “Homicide: Life on the Street,” and has another Emmy to his credit, for FX’s “Thief” in 2006.
