Peter Scanavino Career

Scanavino has played dozens of role minors in film and television, particularly Deception, The Good Wife, and The Blacklist since 2005. In 2010, Scanavino had taken some time away from acting to pursue his interest in cooking. He began a brief stint working in the kitchen of Dan Barber’s Michelin-starred Blue Hill restaurant in Greenwich Village after graduating from the French Culinary Institute in New York with a certificate in Culinary Arts.

In 2013, Scanavino guest-starred at the long-running NBC crime drama series Law & Order: Special Victims Unit in Season 14, Episode 13, “Monster’s Legacy” as Johnny Dubcek. The same year, he starred in the independent romantic comedy film Mutual Friends, directed by Matthew Watts.

In 2014, Scanavino joined SVU in its 16th season, this time as Dominick Carisi Jr., nicknamed Sonny, a new SVU detective. Scanavino was first promoted to the major cast in the fifth episode of the same period in a recurring capacity.

According to SVU Executive Producer Warren Leight, Carisi “come[s] in and shake[s] things up” and is “a guy who maybe needs a little bit of refining.” He’s brusque and doesn’t really get the nuances and he’s not very experienced so he puts his foot in his mouth a lot of times. But he’s just learning. He’s going to pick it up. He’s a good detective, I think, but he has a lot to learn about how to approach cases.

Scanavino starred as the father of his real-life son Leo Bai-Scanavino in the episode of Netflix’s 2020 anthology series Social Distance.
