American Horror Story star Dylan McDermott just posted the news announcing he is joining Christopher Meloni as a series regular! He captioned a photo with: "@nbc @nbcsvu @chris_meloni #lawandorderorganizedcrime New York, here I come!"

The official NBCSVU account also posted the Deadline article announcing the news too! No details have come through yet on whether Dylan will be playing a detective or a defense attorney but he already has a history of playing both law enforcement and lawyers!

He portrayed "FBI Agent Max Canary" in The Grid, "Detective Jack Larsen" in Stalker, and lawyer "Bobby Donnell" in The Practice. So there is no one more perfect for the series! NBC is pulling out all the stops for our much-awaited return of no-nonsense and hands-on "Detective Elliot Stabler."
