After whispering to ghosts and playing a masseuse in a summer TV movie, Jennifer Love Hewitt is taking on the most serious role of her career. “In our third hour, airing September 29, Jennifer will be playing a woman named Vicki who has been raped multiple times and is afraid to leave her house,” Law & Order: SVU executive producer Neal Baer tells me exclusively. “One of the reasons we wanted to do this episode is because it addresses Mariska Hargitay’s passion for rape kits, which can help gather evidence to convict the rapists. But for some reason these kits have been sitting around unopened in cities all over the country.”
Mariska, who has brought attention to the value of rape kits through her Joyful Heart Foundation, will also be shooting scenes in Los Angeles for this same episode. Since this will be the lead in to Law and Order: Los Angeles’ premiere, it seems likely that Mariska’s Olivia will be interacting with the new franchise’s cast to help lead viewers into Dick Wolf’s latest franchise. No comment from Baer on that.

Detectives Stabler and Benson better brace themselves, because there’s an A-list suspect who’s about to make their list. Joan Cusack is set to guest star on ‘Law & Order: SVU,’ according to OMG.
The two-time Oscar nominee will play the mother of a girl who had gone missing years before. But when a second daughter disappears, her story suddenly seems questionable — and she becomes the center of the detectives’ investigation.
Cusack’s turn on ‘SVU’ is only the latest surprise appearance for the versatile actress. This summer she was on the big screen (virtually, at least), as the voice of Jessie, the upbeat cowgirl in ‘Toy Story 3.’ In the past, she’s appeared in a diverse range of films and shows, including the crowd-pleaser ‘Confessions of a Shopaholic’ (2009) and Nicole Holofcener’s 2006 indie dramedy, ‘Friends With Money.’
And as for how long her stint lasts on ‘SVU’? That depends on handy detective work.
Henry Ian Cusick will go from time-traveling to computer artistry.
Cusick will play a graphic artist named Erik Weber on the drama, appearing on at least two fall episodes and possibly getting close to Mariska Hargitay’s Detective Benson.
“There might be some flirtation,” producer Neal Baer told TV Guide. “Erik meets Olivia when he comes to someone’s aid. And then we’ll see how it goes. Olivia is devoted to her job and knows that comes first.”

There’s another Bravo to NBC crossover afoot. First, The Real Housewives of New Jersey popped over to play themselves on Mercy. Now it turns out that Kathy Griffin is on her way to Law and Order: SVU. And, get this, she’s not playing herself. The queen of the D-list will be acting.
Kathy has been tapped to play a lesbian activist in the February 10 episode. As anyone who’s watched Kathy on her Emmy-award winning reality show, My Life on the D-List, Kathy is a shameless over-achiever and loves to work. She’s ambitious and determined to get off the D-list. As she might say, she would go to the opening of a refrigerator if it would help her career.
Clearly, appearing on NBC’s top-rated drama — although that’s not saying much considering that NBC is currently in fourth place among the four networks — could be a feather in Kathy’s cap. Even with all of NBC’s issues, at least SVU remains a very good show. And many guest turns have been Emmy-recognized. In recent years, Leslie Caron, Amanda Plummer, Cynthia Nixon and Marcia Gay Harden all won for appearing on SVU. Could KG be the next splashy guest star to grab a golden statuette?
One thing’s for sure; Kathy will drive ratings. She’ll get her fanny out there on talk shows and promote the appearance. If she could, she’d go to your house and make sure you tune in for the entire hour.
