Considering how upset Law & Order: SVU fans over the departure of Christopher Meloni, imagine how it affects co-star Mariska Hargitay.
Actually, you don't need to imagine. The Emmy winner provided a statement to TV Line today that reads:
“For the past 12 years Chris has been my partner and friend, both on screen and off. He inspired me every day with his integrity, his extraordinary talent and his commitment to the truth. I love him deeply and will miss him terribly - I’m so excited to see what he’ll do next.”
So are we. We're also curious about who will replace him. Which of these actors would make the best fit?
