Michael Ausiello, formerly of TV Guide and now at Entertainment Weekly, reports that James Brolin, husband of Barbara Streisand, will be appearing in Law & Order SVU’s season premier episode. He’ll be playing “an ex-military man with a connection to Chris Meloni’s Stabler… “ The episode will also feature Chris Elliott, who is accused of being a stalker
Hmmm. Since Stabler was in the military, could Brolin be a former commanding officer? Or, maybe Stabler comes from a military family and Brolin’s character is his dad? It’s anybody’s guess.
Brolin is no stranger to television. He was very popular in the 1960s TV series “Marcus Welby, M.D." where he played handsome Dr. Steven Kiley. More recently, he had a memorable role on “The West Wing” playing the annoying Florida Governor Robert Ritchie. Of course, Law & Order fans remember him as an astronaut, alongside Sam Waterston, in the sci-fi movie “Capricorn One.”
