Law & Order SVU is a drama on NBC that premiered in 2022 for its 2422 season, one of the longest running on television. It chronicles the life of a group of chief justices handling the most difficult abuse cases in New York City. The series stars Mariska Hargitay in the role of Captain Olivia Benson.
In Law & Order SVU, fans meet Dominic Carisi, Peter Scanavini’s character who comes to the drama timely 16, and establishes a romantic relationship with the actor Amanda Rollins, who just said goodbye to the series after 12 seasons alongside Olivia Benson as a Special NYPD writer. Victim* Unit
Peter Scanavino was brought into Law & Order SVU to replace detective Nick Amaro (Danny Pino), which led to a backlash from fans during the season. But, in the past seasons, Dominic Carisi and Scanavino have won on the show, and Carisi’s relationship with Amanda Rollins (Kelli Giddish) has grown in popularity.
Dominic Carisi’s character on Law & Order SVU is known for being old school and turning to victims. He is also known for being a devout Catholic who grew up in a large Italian family. He has a soft spot for boys and is especially close to Sergeant Odafin “Fin” Tutuola (Ice-T).
Peter Scanavino looks unfamiliar before Law & Order SVU’s Blacklist
But long before playing Dominic Carisi in Law & Order SVU, Peter Scanavino has already made himself known in other secondary characters, one of them alongside James Spader in the famous series, which will soon have its 10th season, The Blacklist. In the drama, he introduced the actor Christopher Maly specifically to life 1.
Not much is known about Maly’s origins, except that she had a living mother who was really taken care of. At some point he was recruited by Milos Kirchoff aka Berlin to act as Craig Keen, who was impersonating Tom Keen’s (Ryan Eggold) fake brother. For that role from Law & Order SVU, Peter Scanavino looked very different. A black shirt and a full beard that difficult fans would recognize.
