It was a marriage of some primetime television giants and some awesome tunes. Law & Order: SVU’s Diane Neal recently shared a throw-back moment on her Instagram page remembering a big evening. Big because it was the first evening in which the SVU star met soon-to-be costar and NCIS alum Michael Weatherly. It was also an evening in which the actress catches a performance from music icon, Paul Anka.
