Peter Scanavino stars in "Law & Order: SVU" on NBC as Detective Dominick "Sonny" Carisi Jr.

Born and raised in Colorado, and after briefly studying in Boston, Peter Scanavino caught a bus to New York City where he has remained ever since.

He has worked extensively in theater, with credits including the Tony Award nominated "Shining City" on Broadway as well as revivals of Eric Bogosian's "subUrbia" and Howard Korder's "Boy's Life," both at Manhattan's Second Stage Theater. Most recently Scanavino appeared in the New York premiere of the Simon Stephens play "Harper Regan" at the Atlantic Theater Company.

In film, Scanavino starred in Josh Radnor's award-winning directorial debut "HappyThankyouMorePlease," Tom Gilroy's "The Cold Lands" and Mathew Watts' "Mutual Friends." Recent television credits include NBC's "The Blacklist" and "Chicago PD," HBO's "The Leftovers" and Cinemax's "Banshee."

In addition to acting, Scanavino's passion for cooking led him to an internship at Dan Barber's Michelin starred restaurant Blue Hill after graduating from the French Culinary Institute.

Scanavino currently lives in Brooklyn with his wife and sons.
