Law & Order: Christopher Meloni Knows It's Mariska Hargitay's Day

Law & Order: Organized Crime star Christopher Meloni shared a video to let SVU's Mariska Hargitay know that HE knows today's her special day.

While NBC's Law & Order fans have the returns of the main series (S22E12 "Almost Famous"), "SVU" (S24E12 "Blood Out") and "Organized Crime" (S03E12 "Partners in Crime") to look forward to this week, we have much more important business to address today. And we mean literally today… as in, January 23rd. Because today marks Mariska Hargitay's (SVU's Olivia Benson) birthday, and a whole lot of fans have hit social media to offer their love & well-wishes on her special day. But this is "Law & Order" that we're talking about, so when we mention Hargitay, then we have to check in on what her long-time friend & co-star Christopher Meloni (Elliot Stabler) had to share on Hargitay's day. And Meloni didn't disappoint, letting Hargitay know that he knew what today was… without actually saying it.
