Nick Chinlund

  1. Christopher Meloni, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, TV, 1999-2013. “There’s no doubt who we should choose – Hargitay and Meloni,” said iconic producer Dick Wolf. They’d always been his favourites – “perfect chemistry!” – of the final group of three girls and four guys. Christopher and Mariska lasted 315 episodes (finally earning $400,000 per episode) as Detectives Olivia Benson and Elliot Stabler – named after Wolf’s children.  Meloni returned  to the Wolf fold in the 202l spinoff, Law & Order: Organized Crime.
