Down and Out in Denver

The Ladies of SVU

Posted in tv by Blake on March 31, 2010

People often say that Law and Order (in all of its varieties) keeps New York actors employed.  And it certainly seems that way when you see a play in New York: almost every cast member has an L&O credit.

However, here at DOD we’ve noticed that Law and Order: SVU keeps another set of people employed: fantastic female actors who don’t get so much work these days. Tonight the guest stars were Susan Anton, Jaclyn Smith, Morgan Fairchild, and Ann-Margret!  Of course we’re happy to see Mariska Hargitay, Tamara Tunie, and Stephanie March on most episodes, but semi-regulars Judith Light, Christine Lahti, and Marlo Thomas make us even happier.

Add to the guest star list the likes of Lena Olin, Lynda Carter, Angela Lansbury, Swoosie Kurtz, Cicely Tyson, Carol Burnett, Brenda Blethyn, Ellen Burstyn, Rhea Perlman, and Annie Potts, and you know we’re smiling.  And guess who’s coming next, and for four whole episodes?  Sharon Stone!

We’re upset that Christopher Meloni has announced that he’s leaving after this season, but if the guest star list continues to look like this, we’ll still be watching.
