Lots of characters have cycled into and out of Law & Order: SVU over the past 19 seasons, with a whole host of actors portraying hard-boiled police detectives and hotshot attorneys on the drama. With Chicago Justice's Peter Stone now showing up on the series, we couldn't help but wonder if the character might be around for a long while and actually become a regular fixture on the show for the foreseeable future. Here's what actor Philip Winchester had to say about the chances of him sticking around to help prosecute the perps from the NYPD's Special Victims Unit.
Philip Winchester spoke with CinemaBlend's own Nick Venable recently and revealed that he would certainly love more opportunities to really get into the character and explore this new challenge in his life.
Winchester was also quick to note how wonderful it was to be a part of the ensemble on SVU, with all the actors on set making his job easier, both as an actor who was new to working within the show's well-oiled machine, and as he got used to the flow between his character and the ones who've been on the series for so many years. He also added that, while a bit nervous to step into SVU in the beginning, the cast absolutely made the process painless for him.
Well, let's hope that Philip Winchester can stick around for a while, because those guys in the SVU could use all the help they can get putting creepy bad guys away. Warning: spoilers for the Law & Order: SVU episode "The Undiscovered Country". Viewers just learned how Winchester will be able to stick around. Unfortunately for fans of Rafael Barba as the Assistant District Attorney working with Special Victims, Barba has officially departed the series. After he made a fateful decision to end the life of a child who required a ventilator to breathe and whose mother wanted to end his suffering, he was put on trial. Although not convicted, Barba decided that it was time to move on. Winchester's character is in the mix as a regular for the rest of Season 19 and beyond as the new A.D.A.
