No stranger to TV’s crime drama genre, Law & Order: SVU actor Danny Pino (Detective Nick Amaro) has made quite the name for himself on the small screen, having initially carved out a niche for himself as Scotty Valens on CBS’ Cold Case.

Even though we’re all investigating sex crimes, it now has the residue of what happened in the premiere episode. Every investigation has that residue.”

While Pino couldn’t get into the most minute of details on Detective Amaro’s fate, he did confess that they’ll indeed be murky waters ahead for his character in more ways than one.

“Nick Amaro is going to have some turmoil from within the squad. Potentially not only with his partner given her challenges, but also with ADA Barba. You’re also going to see Nick Amaro have some hurdles to jump with his personal life with his wife and with trying to keep his life outside the squad room in order.”

Amid the news that veteran actor Richard Belzer (Munch) would be stepping down as a series regular, Pino elaborated on a rather unique experience he had when initially meeting his fellow cast member and future mentor.

“I was getting ready for my first read-through of the season as a cast member and he made his way around the table and I was the last one he got to. I stood up and respectfully put my hand out and he slapped it out of the way and gave me an incredible and endearingly welcoming hug. He served as a mentor on screen and a friend and a mentor offscreen.”

Speaking of offscreen, the actor also took the opportunity to talk about Duracell’s Quantum Heroes program, which he joined up with for a charitable cause.

“This campaign is about giving the most technologically advanced batteries to first responders across the country to the tune of one million batteries.”

Born and raised in Miami, Fla., the cause at hand undoubtedly hits home for Pino. To make matters even more personal, his very own brother works as a real-life detective for the Miami Dade Police Department as well.

“Having been born and raised in Miami-Dade County and Duracell donating 40,000 batteries to the Miami-Dade Police Department and Miami-Dade Fire Rescue means a lot to me. My brother is a detective in the Miami-Dade Police Department so that makes it a personal thing as well.”

Law & Order: Special Victims Unit star Danny Pino returned to the city of Miami—where he was born and raised—to donate 40,000 Duracell Quantum batteries to first responders of the Miami-Dade Police Department and Miami-Dade Fire Rescue yesterday. With his brother Detective Jaime Pino by his side, Danny spoke to members of the media about the importance of first responders having the latest technology at their disposal in case of emergencies.

Why was it important for you to team up with Duracell for this campaign?

When I heard about it I thought that [this campaign] covers a lot of topics that are important to me—mainly first responders in the city of Miami. I have an intimate understanding of what they do having played a police officer on television for several years as well as having my awareness elevated even further seeing my brother who is a detective here in Miami-Dade County.

It’s a very personal thing to be able to play a part in the donation of 40,000 new Duracell Quantum batteries. They are the most high tech batteries available and that makes me all the more excited to be able to provide that type of technology to the people who are out there protecting us and saving lives.

As part of the campaign, there is an online docu-series called, “Quantum Heroes” that really brings to light the importance of first responders. Why is this element so important?

The videos are an extremely important part of what Duracell is trying to do. They are shedding light on the real-life heroism and bravery of first responders who go out every day and do this anonymously.  I have to admit; when I first saw it a few days ago I got a little emotional. Being a father and a brother of a first responder, it’s visceral to watch these videos. By showing this to people, I feel that they will be able to appreciate what these men and women do every day.

Even though you’re a big Hollywood star now, you’ve never forgotten about your roots. What are some of your favorite memories of Miami?

The first thing to pop into my head as you asked me about my memories from growing up here is the Orange Bowl. Even though it isn’t around anymore, I remember going there to watch the Miami Dolphins play and how crazy it was to find parking there! It was an experience to have to go behind buildings and houses through narrow alleys as your side mirrors scratch on the side. But as you walked out, you could smell the arroz con pollo and frijoles negros being cooked by the people who were taking the money for parking in their backyards. It was all part of that community feeling you find in Miami. This always has been and always will be home to me.

It’s a great time to be a Latino in Hollywood. Where do you see things moving beyond 2013?

I’m incredibly proud of my heritage. Being Cuban-American and being Latino to me is an important part of my identity. While working on Law & Order: SVU there are several scenes when I throw in some Spanish into my dialogue. The incredibly talented Raul Esparza, who is also a Cuban-American from Miami, and I have an episode coming up where we have an entire scene in Spanish. It’s not going to be just Spanish—but Cuban Spanish, which was exciting for us working on network television where such a thing is rare to see. I think it speaks to how multicultural television wants to become and needs to become. So I’m hoping [the scene] will bode well [with audiences].”

You don’t get much more of a Miami boy than Danny Pino.

The Westchester native discovered his love of acting at Rockway Elementary School during choir class as well as the love of his life, schoolmate Lilly Bernal, now his wife and mother of his sons, 6 and 7.

The couple now lives in Los Angeles, where Pino, a Coral Park Senior High and FIU alum (who was Grand Marshal at Saturday’s homecoming game), costars as Detective Amaro on Law & Order: SVU.

“Every opportunity we have, we’re always drawn back home,” says Pino, 39. “Not only because Miami’s a beautiful city but because that’s where our family is. It has a sense of familiarity and camaraderie. It’s home.”

When Pino flies in, he makes sure his time is well spent. At a VIP ceremony Monday, he’ll present 40,000 Duracell Quantum batteries to both the Miami-Dade fire and police departments for their life-saving equipment.

Pino (whose brother is a detective in Miami) says he was impressed when he heard the battery company was donating 1 million of its new Quantum batteries to first responders across the country.

Since Pino plays a cop on TV and his brother is one in real life, does he think he could ever pull off being on the force?

“It’s all an act until bullets start to fly,” he says. “I tip my hat and have nothing but respect for people who do it in real life.”

Question: I loved the Law and Order: SVU premiere and can’t wait to see how Olivia’s arc plays out over the season. Will we continue to find out more about the time she spent with Lewis? —Cheryl
Ausiello: That depends on how much Benson is willing to divulge.  As Benson’s partner, “Amaro is confused as to how to deal with it,” shares his portrayer Danny Pino. “He’s feeling his way, because he’s not a psychologist, and you’ll see that throughout: ‘When can I ask her if she’s OK?’ There’s an underlying volatility to the whole season… This is something she’s working through, but we’re also working through it, because we have a stake in her, and it’s a very personal one.” (Also, not that you asked, but I loathed the SVU opener with every fiber of my being.)

PREVIOUSLY ON… | A relaxing day off for the SVU detectives turned into a hunt for William Lewis, a sexual predator talented at using legal technicalities to avoid jail time. When Benson returned home for a much-needed staycation, an out-on-bail Lewis grabbed Liv, held a gun to her head and took her to the bedroom — leaving Olivia’s fate up in the air.

COMING UP NEXT | Executive producer Warren Leight says the two-hour Season 15 premiere finds Benson alive, but not well. “The most harrowing episode” of SVU to date (“Even case-hardened crew members were staring at the monitor in shock,” Leight notes) kicks off a season-long arc that deals with Benson’s traumatic experience, including the effect it may have on her relationship with Det. Brian Cassidy. SVU‘s Season 15 police blotter also tackles racial profiling, military rape and sleazy politicians.

TVLINE BONUS SPOILER | Several of the drama’s past guest stars will be back for brief stints, including Arrested Development’s Jeffrey Tambor as Ben Cohen (“The lawyer we love to hate,” Leight jokes) and Go On’s Laura Benanti as Amaro’s wife Maria.

RETURN DATE | Wednesday, Sept. 25 at 9/8c (NBC, two hours)

When “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” returns for its 15th season this fall, we pick up in Olivia Benson’s (Mariska Hargitay) apartment just a few hours after we left her in the cliffhanger finale — with a gun to her head, courtesy of Lewis (Pablo Schreiber), a rapist so horrible he is called the Beast.

In the season premiere, airing Wednesday, Sept. 25 on NBC, Hargitay is asked to do something she has never done before … and she dove right in! So says, executive producer/showrunner Warren Leight, who adds, “What Pablo and Mariska did in that first episode, everyone on the crew felt it was the most harrowing episode we have ever done. Even the most case-hardened crew members were, ‘Oh, my God.’ I know there is a lot of anticipation, but it will prove to have been worth the wait. They really went there as actors.”

For more exclusive scoop from Leight on Season 15 of “SVU,” including reveals on some of the ripped-from-the-headline cases to come, such as sexting politicians and sex slaves kept prisoner for years, check out the rest of his interview with xfinityTV:


Is Amaro [Danny Pino] going to find romance this season? He reconnected with someone inappropriate last year.

It is a complicated story. He had a son that he didn’t know about. The son surfaced several years later. His marriage is in shambles and he is a part-time dad to two kids from two separate women. I think he is happy to get to work and focus on his work.

His wife was played by Laura Benanti and we are hoping she will come back for an episode we are doing on military rape fairly early in the season. She works for the pentagon now in public relations, so she will be coming back for that episode.

Amaro is grappling with life — in some of the same ways that Olivia is trying to deal with life after the trauma — Amaro is trying to figure out what his life is going to be after that picture he had of a perfect marriage is gone.

“Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” premieres with two back-to-back episodes on Wednesday, Sept. 25 beginning at 9/8c on NBC.
