LENA OLIN, RICHARD BURGI AND RUSSELL G. JONES GUEST STAR ON NBC'S "LAW & ORDER: SPECIAL VICTIMS UNIT"

Episode titled "Confidential" to air February 2010

NEW YORK - December 8, 2009 - Oscar and Emmy-nominated actress Lena Olin ("The Reader") will guest star with Richard Burgi ("Desperate Housewives") and Russell G. Jones on NBC's "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit," Executive Producer Neal Baer announced today. The episode titled "Confidential" premieres this February on NBC.

In "Confidential," Olin guest stars as Ingrid Block, the high-powered attorney of Richard Morgan, a billionaire investment banker, played by Richard Burgi. Jones guest-stars as Morgan's head of security, who discovers a woman has been abducted from his building.

"Ever since I first saw Lena Olin in "The Unbearable Lightness of Being," I've been a huge admirer of her work," said Baer. "To have her guest on 'SVU' in this intense role is what makes my job so gratifying."

Olin recently completed filming "Remember Me" opposite Robert Pattinson, Pierce Brosnan and Chris Cooper, which will be in theatres this March. Other film credits include "The Reader," with Kate Winslet, and "Awake" opposite Hayden Christensen and Jessica Alba. She and husband Lasse Hallstrom collaborated on the 2000 film "Chocolat," which received five Academy Award nominations, and on "Casanova" (2005). She then starred in "Alias" opposite Jennifer Garner in her first American television role ever. In 1988, Olin garnered international acclaim opposite Daniel Day-Lewis in her first English speaking film, "The Unbearable Lightness of Being." In 1989, she earned an Academy Award nomination for her work in "Enemies: A Love Story."

Burgi currently stars as Karl Mayer on ABC's "Desperate Housewives," opposite Teri Hatcher. His many television credits include "24," "Point Pleasant," "CSI," "The District," "Judging Amy," "The Sentinel," "Just Shoot Me," "Seinfeld," "Nip/Tuck," and "Reaper." His film roles include Curtis Hanson's "In Her Shoes" opposite Cameron Diaz and Toni Collette, "Fun with Dick and Jane" with Jim Carrey, "Cellular" opposite Kim Basinger, and "Shanghai Red" with Vivian Wu.

Jones recently won Obie, Audelco, and BTAA awards, and received Outer Critics and Joseph Jefferson Awards nominations for his role as "Christian" in the Pulitzer Prize winning play "Ruined" at Manhattan Theater Club. He received a SAG Award for his ensemble role in the film "Traffic" and has guest-starred on "Law & Order," and "Law & Order: Criminal Intent."

"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" is a Wolf Films production in association with Universal Media Studios. Dick Wolf is creator and executive producer; Neal Baer (NBC's "ER," "China Beach"), Ted Kotcheff ("Fun with Dick and Jane," "Weekend at Bernie's") and Peter Jankowski are executive producers.
