Scratch another name from the "Law & Order: SVU" cast list.
Actor B.D. Wong tweeted over the weekend that he will be leaving his longstanding role as Dr. George Huang on the NBC drama.
Wong won't be traveling too far in professions with his role. Like the character of Dr. Huang, Wong plays a psychiatrist on "Awake," a new NBC drama slated for mid-season.
As for whether his character will get a send-off, Wong tweeted "dont know if or when i'll be back! It was amazing to have such a cool job for 11 years and to be a real NY Actor."
Wong is the latest to announce he's leaving "SVU." As we previously reported, Christopher Meloni is ending his 12-year run as Det. Elliot Stabler on the show while co-star Mariska Hargitay will reportedly remain on the cop drama in a lesser capacity following her recent adoption of a child.
