It's been a long while since I've done 'Yummy of the Mood'! Peter Scanavino plays Detective Sonny Carisi on 'Law and Order: Special Victims Unit' since season 16 (now in season 17). He kinda replaced Christopher Meloni/Elliot Stabler (keyword: kinda) for me as Chris is no longer on the show for the past 5 years. Sonny is smart, funny, sorta annoys the other detectives but has a point. I really like him! In real life, Peter is married with a second child on the way.
