B.D. Wong has been on Law and Order: SVU for 11 years. That's an incredible run, and he was an amazing part of the show.
He just announced however, that he won't be back for season 13 of the hit crime drama. We're a little bummed, but mostly not, and here's why:
“I actually do not return for Season 13. I am jumping to Awake! It’s awesome!”
That's right, Wong landed the role as one of the shrinks in the ridiculously cool and powerful looking pilot for Awake, alongside the incredible Jason Isaacs who just freshly got off the monstrous Harry Potter train.
Seriously, Awake looks awesome. If you don't believe us, watch the trailer above and see for yourself (and check out Wong in the process)!
We're proud of you for making a change, B.D., and that even after 11 years you're still willing to do something a little risky! If the preview is dead on, though, we think that risk paid off!
We'll miss you on SVU, but can't wait to see you on Awake!
