Explains Sophia Bush: “We have a case that we need a little bit of help with that began in New York City and that we’re now finding the M.O. in Chicago, and SVU was investigating it when it was up there and now it’s in our hands,”; she says.
Bush will be heading to New York this week to film her SVU scenes, and admitted that she’s excited to appear on the iconic police drama. “I’m the biggest SVU fan,”; Bush says. “So to have Ice and Kelli come down and work with us and now to be going to work with Mariska [Hargitay], I feel like it’s my birthday.”;
