Henry Ian Cusick to Guest Star on Law & Order: SVU

at . Comments

Henry Ian Cusick will go from time-traveling to computer artistry.

The actor who created one of the most iconic characters in TV history - Desmond Hume on Lost - has landed a guest-starring role on Law & Order: SVU.

Cusick will play a graphic artist named Erik Weber on the drama, appearing on at least two fall episodes and possibly getting close to Mariska Hargitay's Detective Benson.

"There might be some flirtation," producer Neal Baer told TV Guide. "Erik meets Olivia when he comes to someone's aid. And then we'll see how it goes. Olivia is devoted to her job and knows that comes first."
