Law & Order SVU: Benson Gets a Boyfriend

The web site Dose.ca says People Magazine is reporting that when Law & Order SVU returns this season, Olivia Benson gets herself a love interest. Here's the scoop from Dose.ca, ignore the fact they get Ice-T’s name wrong.

“Benson Gets a Boyfriend on Law and Order: Sport Utility Vehicle

It only took her nine seasons, but Det. Olivia Benson (Mariska Hargitay) has finally nabbed herself a man on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, reports People. Once the show returns after the strike, it will be revealed that Hargitay has begun dating a man named Kurt Moss, the editor of the fictional New York newspaper The Ledger. Moss will be played by Bill Pullman, who is taking time out from his busy alien-fighting schedule to make out with Hargitay.

Benson and Moss face an uphill battle with their love, since personal relationships never fare well on SVU. After focusing too much on his work, Det. Stabler (Christopher Meloni) nearly got divorced; then his pregnant wife got into a car accident while in labour. Det. Tutuola (Ice Cube - yeah, "Cop Killer" Ice Cube plays a police officer) is divorced and has a rocky relationship with his gay son and Sgt. Munch (Richard Belzer) is just one creepy dude. For her part, Det. Benson has always had trouble with her personal life; as a product of rape, she is often seen "Taking! It! Personally!" when dealing with rape cases.

Pullman starts filming next week, with his first appearance airing on April 22. NBC did not reveal how many episodes his character will stick around for, but knowing the show, he and Benson will probably break up when he betrays her trust in order to get the scoop of the century; SVU may be entertaining, but it's still predictable.”
