Danny Pino is an actor who seems to have made his career of playing smooth, oh-so- charismatic, good-guy characters. You might remember him from CBS cop drama “Cold Case” and these days you can catch him on the small screen on perennial fan favorite, “Law & Order: SVU.” As Detective Nick Amaro on the show – now in its 14th season – Pino is a warm, likeable guy, but one whose background and personal story always seem to take second seat to the job at hand. But in real life, that couldn’t be farther from the truth, as Pino – named for his grandfather Pedro Gonzalo de Armas – is passionate about his Cuban heritage.

“To give your children the opportunity to not live under a communist dictatorship and to be able to realize their full potential is very specific to Cubans,” says Pino, who was born and raised in Miami. “It’s something that I am direct beneficiary of.”

Pino – the second of five brothers – explains that because his parents fled their native island with nothing, family and tradition quickly became the focus of the Pino home. That emphasis on family is something Pino wants to pass down to his two boys with wife Lilly; through language, food and culture he says, he wants them to feel proud of their roots.

“I hope my kids are able to be proud of who they are,” says Pino. “That they are, in fact, the beneficiaries of people who worked incredibly hard and sacrificed a lot – who sacrificed everything except their family …that’s something we’re determined to pass on to them.”

“So I’m hoping and working towards that.”

Watch Pino talk more about his Cuban roots and learn why he feels empowered by Miami’s Cuban every time he walks into a casting office.

[WARNING: The following story reveals major details about Wednesday’s episode of Law & Order: SVU. Read at your own risk.]

After weeks of teases and debate, Wednesday’s Law & Order: Special Victims Unit finally revealed Detective Olivia Benson’s mystery man.

Returning spring shows: Where we left off

And he is… Brian Cassidy! Sure, the show had planted the seeds of the relationship in the season premiere when Benson (Mariska Hargitay) and Cassidy (Dean Winters), who hooked up way back on SVU‘s first season, shared a kiss in the hospital. But when TVGuide.com visited the show’s New York set for the filming of the big reveal, executive producer Warren Leight confessed that when the arc was first conceived, Cassidy wasn’t the writers’ first choice.

“We had initially assumed it would be Haden [Harry Connick Jr.],” Leight says. “But there was something interesting between Dean and Mariska. When there was the hospital kiss scene, we were leaning towards it. But we weren’t sure how much we were going to pay it off, and then we just decided to go a little farther. I think if we did our job right, everybody looking back will go, ‘Duh.’ But it’s interesting that there’s been debate.”

Although the identity of Benson’s secret lover might not have been completely surprising, the reveal itself was pretty spectacular. On Wednesday’s episode, a woman accused Cassidy of rape when he was working undercover. When Amaro (Danny Pino) and Munch (Richard Belzer) head to Cassidy’s apartment to question him, they catch Benson walking out of Cassidy’s bedroom — wearing the checkered shirt last seen by Benson’s companion on her flight to the Bahamas.

So, why has the couple been able to make the relationship work this time around? “I think Cassidy grew up a little bit in the last 13 years,” Winters says. “He was bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, and she was a seasoned cop. I think he went off and he got seasoned. [And] I think there’s a little familiarity there, which seems like something she might need right now.”

Hargitay agrees. “There’s an ease to them,” she says. “They keep going back together because it just feels comfortable and safe and easy. We’re exactly what each other needs right now. Both of us have commitment issues and both of us put our work first. So it’s unlikely, but it’s a perfect fit.”

Then again, the episode seems to have put strain on the relationship a bit. Although Cassidy was ultimately exonerated, Winters suggests that even the slightest hint of distrust on Benson’s part could be trouble. “I think the future with Benson is uncertain,” he says. “The thing that you want most in your life is your woman to have faith in you, and I’m not sure that she does. That’s a real crusher. But there is chemistry there, and I think the two characters do long for each other.”

Leight admits that early drafts of the script did, in fact, feature Cassidy ending things with Benson on the courthouse steps. “We went back and forth on it, and Mariska was a little sad to read it,” he says. “I think she opened herself up a lot with Haden and got clobbered. …  I just didn’t want to take her heart out of her chest and smash it again.

“This is a relationship that isn’t asking for as much overt risk-taking,” Leight continues. “The nature of their relationship is not so much a Mr. Right, but a Mr. Right Now. Sometimes those port-in-a-storm relationships are very helpful. I’m glad that she has a little company.”

Hargitay agrees that Benson is approaching the relationship cautiously, but she suggests that perhaps that approach will improve the couple’s chances at longevity. “I think she’s a little bit off love,” she says. “She doesn’t have any unrealistic expectations [about the relationship], but it fills a need. That’s the beauty of it. Because she doesn’t think that it has legs, that’s the reason it might last.”

Leight says he’d like to check in on Benson and Cassidy before the end of the season, but acknowledges that the show also has to deal with the episode’s other big shocker. While testifying in Cassidy’s trial, Amaro is forced to admit that he once carried on a long-term relationship with the sister of the drug kingpin he was targeting while working undercover. Even worse, Amaro learns that he fathered a child with the woman that he never knew about.

“Amaro is very buttoned-down. He keeps things in control, and I thought, ‘I’d like to, in some way, dirty him up or knock him for a loop,'” Leight says. “There aren’t tremendous legal implications for Amaro, but there are tremendous emotional implications for him. How do you tell the wife with whom you are trying to figure out your status [about this]? And when does his daughter meet her half brother?”

Adds Pino: “Amaro came in kind of as a rogue. He’s tried to conform to being this detective with a suit and a tie, but he’s not that guy. He’s been trying to be as close to a perfect SVU detective as possible, but that mask is now off and he’s been revealed. To see him as fallible and see him as imperfect is a lifeline. I like to see Amaro struggle, but he’s going to do the right thing. Taking responsibility is important. … Amaro knows his biggest responsibility is to his kids.”

And how will this pair of reveals affect the partnership between Benson and Amaro? Although Pino admits his character felt betrayed by Benson’s secrecy, he doesn’t predict any irreparable damage. “Any relationship that is solid is forged with controversy and conflict,” he says. “I think we understand each other, we trust each other and we have the ability to hurt each other. Amaro is hurt by her in the episode, but are they past the point of not being able to reconcile? Absolutely not. Partners take a hit and learn from it and hopefully it makes the relationship stronger.”

What did you think of the episode’s many reveals? SVU airs Wednesdays at 9/8c on NBC.
