When the news broke yesterday that Sharon Stone will be playing a former cop (!) turned prosecutor (!!) on SVU for four episodes in April, I got pretty excited. First of all, that's hilarious. Secondly, it made me think of all the other washed-up actors who have yet to make an appearance on the guest-star haven that is the Law & Order franchise. Certainly there are other people who used to be in movies who have since self-sabotaged their way into needing an SVU guest star paycheck, or just might randomly show up for no other reason than to confuse people (like Robin Williams did). I've come up with a few who might work. Would they be good? Not necessarily. But are they available? Most definitely, and that's all that matters.
It is with sadness that we must now mourn the death of Sarah Jessica Parker's Mole. Mole, born in 1965 in Nelsonville, Ohio, made its debut on the lower quarter of Sarah Jessica Parker's face about two millimeters below the right corner of her mouth, and subsequently went on to star as Annie on Broadway, in the cult '80s show Square Pegs, and opposite a youthful Helen Hunt in the movie Girls Just Wanna Have Fun. In the late '80s, Mole dated notorious bad boy Robert Downey, Jr. but wisely severed ties with the troubled actor in order to focus on its career. It also had a relationship with the late John F. Kennedy, Jr.
